Raiders Vs. Seahawks Reaction: Embarrassing Loss Raises Questions About Depth For Oakland

The Oakland Raiders lost to the Seattle Seahawks, 24-3, Thursday night in the preseason finale for both teams. With the loss, the Raiders fell to 1-3 in the preseason.

It wasn't a pretty game for Oakland, which was bested in nearly every significant statistical category by Seattle. With the majority of both teams' starters on the sidelines, the result of the game wasn't important, but it nevertheless raised questions about the Raiders' depth heading into their Week 1 matchup against the San Diego Chargers.

SB Nation's Oakland Raiders blog, Silver and Black Pride, took a look at the team's rough outing and lack of suitable backups.

"Oh, this was a messy one. The Raiders came out last week to get their first win of the preseason and then came out this week and had arguably their worst outing of the preseason. It isn't exactly indicative of how this team will perform in the season but it raises some concern about the depth on this team ...

"This is not the kind of performance [Oakland head coach] Dennis Allen wanted to see AT ALL from this group. He and the Raiders are desperate to find some sign of life from the depth on this team and they found very little of that in this performance."
