Patriots 31, Raiders 19

Run game powers Patriots’ win against Raiders

OAKLAND, Calif. - The Patriots still can bounce back from a loss and the Raiders still aren’t quite able to get out of their own way.

Add those two things and you get yesterday’s result at O.co Coliseum: a 31-19 New England win, which let the Patriots avoid just their third losing streak since 2006 and showed that an improved Oakland squad will challenge a lot of teams but still has a bit of work to do.
