Offensive player spotlight: Despite the loss, Patriots tackle Michael Onwenu acquitted himself well. He gave up one hurry from 16 pass-block snaps on first review but looked very comfortable moving defenders in the running game, earning a positive grade on just under 50% of his snaps.

Defensive player spotlight: Raiders cornerback Sam Webb played 49 snaps and looks set for an 85.0-plus PFF grade. Targeted eight times on the night, Webb allowed five catches for just 34 yards, and just one of those receptions moved the chains.

Rookie player spotlight: Webb wasn't the only rookie corner who put on a show — Patriots corner Jack Jones was targeted twice in coverage, and he forced an incompletion on both of those passes.

Early offensive line analysis: It was a near-identical performance from these two lines on first review. Both units gave up two sacks, one hit and eight hurries. The Patriots' line played 39 pass-block snaps, while the Raiders played 35.
