Article Summary:

Casey Hayward Jr. wondered if Browns center JC Tretter being the NFL Players Association president had something to do with negotiations to delay the game. “There’s going to be adverse times, and I’m going to show up whenever they let us play, and we’re going to play. Whether I agree or I don’t agree we’ve got to play at some point, and after that game, we’re going to stand there – we either won or lost.”

Raiders owner Mark Davis told ESPN.com the delay was a “Competitive disadvantage” to his team, given that Las Vegas, off a long trip to Kansas City the previous week, was prepping for a short week and a cross-country trip to Cleveland but instead had a shift in schedule and now has a short week with a divisional game up next against the Broncos. “We tried to convey that to our players I thought they did a great job of resetting their focus, getting on a plane and getting ready to come and play a game.”

Describe the game in two words: Survive, advance. The Raiders were playing a gaggle of second- and third-stringers, and they played cautiously, but not carelessly, and it worked out.
