LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Good news and bad news for the Raiders defense this week. Defensive lineman Maxx Crosby has been named the AFC Defensive player of the Week. In his first game as a Raiders’ team captain, Crosby finished with six total tackles, four quarterback hits and two sacks. His play stood out even more considering it was against Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who won NFL MVP two seasons ago.

On the negative side, defensive lineman Gerald McCoy was injured in Monday’s win over the Ravens and will be out for the season with a knee injury.
