October 14. That’s the last time the Raiders had a sack in a game. It came in the third quarter of the team’s game in London against the Seahawks. It was the first of rookie Arden Key’s career. No one has had one since.
When Key had that sack, I asked him what teammate Bruce Irvin said to him. Irvin heard the question and yelled across the locker room “Bout damn time!”
Irvin still leads the Raiders team with 3.0 sacks. Last week he was waived and is now set to play for the Falcons this weekend.
That’s the kind of turnaround the Raiders would like to see from the two pass rushers they signed to replace Irvin.
They are Jacquies Smith and Kony Ealy. Between them they have 28.5 career sacks since 2014. In case you were wondering, Irvin had 30.0 sacks over the same time period.
