Raiders focused on making more interceptions after finishing last in 2017

The Raiders have seven interceptions in their organized team activities. That’s two more than Oakland had last season when it finished last in the league.

This is what we want to be about for the whole 2018 season, cornerback Rashaan Melvin said, via Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area. With those guys out there making those plays, you see all 11 guys flying to the [football], that’s a great habit to have.

Just stay healthy, Parker said. And if I’m not healthy, fight through it.

The red-zone struggles were the most glaring problem for Sarkisian as the Falcons fell from ninth in RZ TD percentage to 23rd, per Football Outsiders. Atlanta’s season essentially ending on a failed red-zone trip in Philadelphia, which included some questionable play-calling and a misconnection with Julio Jones, embodied the season-long struggles.

What Garoppolo can do is continue to lead. He’s doing it with Saturday throwing sessions, and he plans to do it between the end of the offseason program and the launch of training camp. Eventually, everyone will find out whether the 49ers can get back to the postseason for the first time since 2013.

The severity of the injury makes it no surprise that Miller won’t play this season, but he’s not giving up on the hope of returning to the field at some point in the future. Miller said positivity has been one of my qualities that’s helped get me through all this stuff and that he’s going to do all he can to give himself a chance to continue his career.

With my doctors and everyone I spoke to, we’re not going to put any set limitations on this, Miller said, via We’re just going to take it as it goes. There has not been a definitive, ‘you can never do this again.’ That hasn’t been talked about. It’s to approach this as you are planning to get back to where I can be myself and play football and then when that time comes, some of that is out of my hands. So, I’m just going to do as much as I can to get that point and see what happens.
