Attacking defensive players making statements to team up

Las Vegas Raiders closed the undefeated preseason for the first time

in franchise history and they are building it up by making 

a statement on the defense against the New England Patriots.

First and foremost, defensive end Tashvan Bower

has been the most consistent lead during the preseason.

The Raiders currently have Max Crosby and Chandler Jones in the 

lead as starters, but Bowers has made a statement to step in for them.

He had five tackles, two sacks and a forceful rumble against the Patriots on Friday.

Brower would end an excellent season with a total of five sacks.
