  • Raiders like what they see in loss to Titans -- San Jose Mercury.

  • The newspaper that covered Michael Bush during his colleges days visited Nashville to see how the former Louisville running back is doing. The Courier-Journal's Eric Crawford was impressed: "For anyone who has been waiting for Bush, the third quarter was a long-awaited pleasure. It wasn't spectacular, but it was Bush. Oakland handed him the ball on 10 of its first 12 plays. After that stretch he had piled up nearly as many rushing yards (51) as the Raiders had in the entire first half (60). And it wasn't as if the Titans were being surprised by disguised runs. It was Bush right, Bush left, Bush up the middle. Bush back." Bush ended the game with 14 carries for 59 yards.
