Every Play Counts: JaMarcus Russell

Michael David Smith

by Michael David Smith

Every Play Counts is Michael David Smith's weekly look at one specific player or one aspect of a team on every single play of the previous game.

As I went through the stat lines from all the box scores from last weekend's NFL action, this one stood out above all the others:

JaMarcus Russell: 10-11, 152 yards, 1 touchdown, 0 interceptions

Really? JaMarcus Russell? The Raiders' quarterback who had barely completed half his passes this season? The guy who had a game earlier this month when he threw the ball 19 times and only had six completions for 31 yards to show for it? That guy completed more than 90 percent of his passes in a game, for almost 14 yards a pass? And the Raiders beat the Broncos 31-10 after getting blown out 41-14 in the season opener? How is this possible?

To find out, I watched the Raiders-Broncos game for this week's Every Play Counts.
