Nelson racked up five tackles (five solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans. Nelson hadn't reached the five-tackle mark in the Raiders' previous four contests, but he was able to due so in Oakland's first and only game of the playoffs.
Nelson recorded two tackles and one pass defensed during Sunday's regular season finale against the Broncos. Nelson will finish his 2016 campaign with 65 tackles, 12 passes defensed, five interceptions, and two fumble recoveries in 16 games. He took a step back in terms of his production following a stellar year with the Bengals in 2015, but he still provided value as the Raiders' top free safety. The 33-year-old has one more year left on his contract with Oakland, so he has plenty to play for in the upcoming playoffs.
Nelson recorded three tackles (two solo), one pass defensed, and one interception during Sunday's win over the Chargers. Nelson's interception was essentially the game sealer in the fourth quarter when Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers sailed his intended target, with the ball ending up in the hands of Nelson. This marks Nelson's fourth pick of the season, good enough for the team lead.
Nelson reeled in an interception to go along with one tackle (one solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's victory over the Jaguars. Nelson and the rest of the Raiders' defense saw improvements in Week 7 after a bit of a horrid start to the season, although they were up against a downward-spiraling Jaguars offense on Sunday. Nelson recorded a season-low in tackles this past week, but will look to get back on track in that department Week 8 against the Buccaneers.
Nelson made six tackles (four solo), one interception, two passes defensed, and a fumble recovery during Sunday's win over the Titans. Nelson brought in his first interception of the 2016 regular season in Week 3 as the rest of the Raiders' defense also took a step forward, limiting the Titans to just 10 points. Rookie Karl Joseph is the new starter at strong safety opposite Reggie Nelson after the benching of Keith McGill, and the duo will look to keep the momentum next week against the Ravens.
