Raiders' Amari Cooper: Not targeted when open
Per Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area, Gruden acknowledged that Monday's game plan sought to take advantage of Jared Cook and Jalen Richard's matchups against an inexperienced group of linebackers. Cooper, on the other hand, was forced to do battle with one of the top cornerback groups in the league, which contributed to him finishing with just one catch for nine yards on three targets. It sounds as if Derek Carr could have done a better job pushing the ball downfield to Cooper instead of settling for shorter throws to Richard and Cook, so there's some hope for the 24-year-old delivering a bounce-back effort Week 2 in Denver.
