Offensive spotlight: This was the most comfortable and in control that Russell Wilson has looked as the quarterback of the Denver Broncos, albeit in a losing effort. Wilson completed 17-of-25 attempts for 237 yards and two scores without an interception. His 9.5 yards per attempt was impressive, and he had the ball out of his hands inside 2.4 seconds on average.

Defensive spotlight: Patrick Surtain II continued his strong start to the season, holding up extremely well against the Raiders receivers. He was targeted 11 times and produced three pass breakups, giving up a first down in coverage only three times.

Rookie spotlight: Third-round offensive lineman Dylan Parham handled another start and 70 snaps on offense for the Raiders. With Andre James on the field, Parham was at right guard and had another solid game. He’s shown so far this season that he definitely belongs in the strongest five the Raiders can deploy on the offensive line.

Offensive line spotlight: Every member of the offensive line that saw significant snaps for the Raiders gave up at least a pressure, but across 34 pass attempts that’s not necessarily unexpected. Run blocking was far worse than pass protection, but the entire unit showed up when it mattered most late in the game for a dominant drive to ice the game.
