ALAMEDA, CA (AP) - Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen likes the production his team is getting out of the no-huddle offense.
The Raiders scored two touchdowns and a field goal running the no-huddle against Jacksonville on Sunday, when they overcame a 14-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Jaguars in overtime 26-23.
It was the second game this season in which quarterback Carson Palmer has engineered a fourth-quarter comeback. Both times he did it while running the no-huddle.
The question for Allen is how much is too much?
Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp continues to be criticized for his play-calling. The running game is barely showing signs of life. Pass protection for Palmer has been shaky at best. Yet Allen isn't ready to commit to the no-huddle full-time.
