Raiders defense comes up with big-time plays in big-time moments

The Raiders have also emphasized how crucial it is to capitalize on turnovers and they did just that, not once, but twice. The first interception of the game came from cornerback Amik Robertson as he notched his second pick of the season.

“I’m just doing my job being myself within the scheme,” he said. “Once I saw the ball then I knew it was mine.”

That interception ultimately led to a four-play, 60-yard drive that ended with running back Josh Jacobs in the end zone.

A few moments later, cornerback Nate Hobbs picked off Giants quarterback Tommy DeVito himself. This marked Hobbs’ second career interception and first of the season.

“I just got to credit my guys, all my teammates bro,” Hobbs said. “I just run to the ball, just try to play with my heart.” 

As the Raiders looked to bounce back after a few tough losses, securing a 30-6 win over the Giants along with the team’s defensive efforts are something to be excited about.

“We’ve been through a lot of stuff this season,” Wilson said. “We had to come together and just go back to work and just look forward.”
