They showed up today. They were ridiculed all week and they came back and silenced the noise. They battled against likely the best trio of receivers we'll see all season and played well. This defense held that team to 9 points with excellent goal line defense and being opportunistic to capitalize on forced turnovers. Thank you so much defense. I salute you.

When Crawley came into the game to cover for PJ Williams, I knew we were in trouble.

Same outcome as last week. Guy is 2016 Jason David.

Not even close. I said it in the preseason and I think it bears repeating but we will suffer from growing pains with Crawley and Harris. Crawley was in great position on that last throw to Cruz and he was in good position in the 2 point conversion against the Raiders. Thanks to injuries he's had to play more than he should but in terms of development he's far ahead where SJB was and can still develop into a good CB. Even though he alligator armed the potential INT, they played well.

And how bout Bell!

Jason David was NEVER in position to make play that Crawley should have made today. Crawley also had good coverage on the 2 point conversion too against Crabtree, Crabtree just made a better play.

I'm seeing a huge difference from this D from last year..we're attacking and got guys around the ball. Last year RB's and TE's ran wide open all day long..not seeing that this year.

If only our offense wasn't playing so conservative we would have had a win today.

Late game situations such as what we witnessed today will only provide valuable experience for our young team. I want to win as bad as anyone but I also want our young defense to learn from their mistakes which I think they will. DA has these guys trending upward.

It was an amazing effort, given the fact we had even more terrible injuries.

Hope PJ is ok and it is nothing serious.

Can't complain about our defense at all. Great effort all around. Crawley played quite well and was in perfect position against Cruz. Cruz simply out-toughed him on that particular play - credit Cruz. I liked what I saw out of Von Bell and Sterling. Craig Robertson again had a very good game. And, Dennis Allen is getting his players in position to make plays without giving up the big play. Run defense overall was outstanding - many tackles for loss.

It's sad to waste such a great defensive performance with poor play elsewhere.

Whatever.. Crawley should be on the practice squad and we need a veteran that doesn't make the rookie mistakes.
