Silver Minings: Paul Guenther’s defense has post-bye blues

The Las Vegas Raiders’ defense continued a concerning trend Sunday in a 45-20 home defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Once again, the Raiders were gutted in their first game back from the bye week. The Raiders have allowed, at least, 42 points in their return from the bye week in all three years that Jon Gruden has been the head coach and Paul Guenther has been the defensive coordinator.

In 2018, the Raiders gave up 42 points in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts and, in 2019, they gave up 42 points in a defeat to the Green Bay Packers in their return from the bye.
