Atfer struggling offensively for most of the first half against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, the Oakland Raiders went to a more hurry-up tempo in the second half and found some success offensively that allowed them to get back into that game with the no-huddle offense.

"With the no-huddle, we were able to wear them down a little bit more and they were less fresh and our guys, it seemed to increase our focus offensively. And we executed better offensively. So, like I said before, it will remain part of our offense and some games it will be more of a part of what we're going to do than others."
The Kansas City Chiefs are no stranger to dealing with offenses running the no-huddle against them as they rotate personnel in their defensive schemes between their base and sub-set defenses. It's something to keep an eye on as Dennis Allen and the Raiders look to find any advantage they can against the Chiefs defense.
"Well it's something that we've had in the offensive game plan and it will remain in the offensive game plan and it's something that, on a week-to-week basis, we try to determine how much we'll use it. Obviously, we were not executing in the first half on offense. It was the worst half of football we've played offensively."
Hopefully that changes and they play a worse 'two halves' of offensive football this weekend.
