OAKLAND, Calif. -- The offseason additions meant to fortify Oaklands defense have only led to a historically bad start for the Raiders.The Raiders got gashed for a second straight week and were unable to get bailed out this time by their high-powered offense, dropping the home opener 35-28 to Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons.Were giving away way t many plays that should be routine and easy plays and allowing them not only to be made, but go for chunks, coach Jack Del Rio said. It will get corrected.For the second straight week Del Rio benched a starter, pulling middle linebacker Ben Heeney late in the game one week after replacing cornerback Sean Smith . Del Rio said he also tk over some play-calling duties late from crdinator Ken Norton Jr.But Del Rio wasnt passing off any responsibility for a defense that has allowed 1,035 yards and 69 points in two games.If you want somebody to blame, blame it on me, he said. If you need someone to blame, blame the head coach. Ill take it. Well correct what needs to be corrected and well go forward. This was one game today that didnt go our way.This wasnt supposed to happen this year after Oakland added proven free-agent starters in Smith, safety Reggie Nelson and linebacker Bruce Irvin and used its top two draft picks on safety Karl Joseph and defensive lineman Jihad Ward.The Raiders (1-1) allowed the Falcons to score on six of seven drives in one stretch and gave up 528 yards in all as they struggled to stop Atlanta (1-1) on the ground or in the air in a deflating loss.Im speechless, Irvin said. Ive never experienced this experience. Until everybody makes a full commitment to turning this thing around were going to be a subpar defense.Right now, they are historically bad. The Raiders joined the 1967 Falcons as the only teams to give up at least 500 yards in each of the first two games of the season, according to Pro Ftball Reference, and the 1,035 total yards allowed through two weeks are the most since at least 1940.The only reason they have a win at all is because Carr led a late comeback last week and Del Rio made a gutsy call to go for a 2-point conversion that gave Oakland a 35-34 win at New Orleans.Oakland faced a bit of bad luck when the Falcons scored the go-ahead touchdown on a deflected third-down pass that the Raiders appeared to break up. But the ball popped in the air and went right to Justin Hardy in the end zone for a touchdown that made it 28-21.But after Oakland was stopped on fourth down near midfield later in the fourth, the defense allowed the Falcons another score on a 13-yard touchdown run by Tevin Coleman .Then after the Raiders cut the deficit to 35-28 on Carrs third touchdown pass with 2:12 to go, the defense failed to get the needed stop, allowing a third-down conversion to Mohamed Sanu that allowed Atlanta to run out all but 2 seconds on the clock.That game was on us, star pass rusher Khalil Mack said after being held without a sack for the second straight game. That game was on us defensively. It was terrible discipline wise. Everything worked in their favor today and we didnt do much to stop it.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Steve Nash Jersey .

BALTIMORE -- While Wei-Yin Chen languished on the disabled list for two months, despondent about his hiatus from the big leagues, the Baltimore Orioles struggled to fill out an inconsistent rotation. Chen made his long-awaited return Wednesday night, and after he threw seven innings of three-hit ball in a 6-1 win over the Texas Rangers, it was hard to determine who felt the happiest: the Taiwanese left-hander, the other 24 players in the clubhouse or manager Buck Showalter. "Winning the ballgame is real huge to me," Chen said through an interpreter. "I proved myself tonight. Im healthy, and Im back. I feel like I helped the team to win. Everything is for the Orioles." Chen (4-3) had not pitched since May 12 because of a strained right oblique. The left-hander allowed one run, walked three and struck out four. "I know hes been anxious to get back with the club and make a contribution," Showalter said. "Its been a tough, tough road for him." And for the Orioles, who went through a variety of pitchers during his absence in an effort to fill out the rotation. "Missed him," Showalter said. "Glad to have him back." So were his teammates, who built a 6-0 lead in the fourth inning and coasted to the finish. "Hes proven to be a guy who can get late in the games, and thats huge for us," second baseman Brian Roberts said. "Thats huge for every rotation, but I think it sets a really gd tone for everybody else. For him to come back after being out two months, against that kind of lineup, is very impressive." Adrian Beltre extended his hitting streak to 12 games and drove in a run for the Rangers, whose four-game road winning streak ended. Texas had scored at least five runs in six consecutive games, but Chen put an end to that streak. "Youve got to give him credit," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He may not have pitched in a while, but he certainly didnt lk like it out there tonight." Nolan Reimould hit a three-run homer and Manny Machado had three hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who won for only the third time in nine games. Baltimore will seek a split of the four-game series on Thursday night. Major league home run leader Chris Davis went 0 for 3 with a walk and is hitless in his last 17 at-bats. He hasnt gotten a hit since Major League Baseball announced he was the leading vote getter in All-Star fan balloting. Reimould was a late replacement at designated hitter for Chris Dickerson, who was scratched with a strained left shoulder. Baatting ninth in the order, Reimold delivered his first home run since May 4 to put Baltimore up 6-0 in the fourth inning against Josh Lindblom (1-3).dddddddddddd Reimould was on the disabled list from May 12 to July 1 and was playing in only his 37th game of the season. "It felt gd that I was able to come through," he said. "Something to build on." Lindblom gave up six runs, nine hits and four walks in 5 1-3 innings. The right-hander started for Nick Tepesch, who went on the disabled list Sunday. "I compete, and really I think thats all you try and do as a starter," said Lindblom, who has split time between the rotation and bullpen. "You go out and give your team a chance to win." Texas right-hander Yu Darvish joined Tepesch on the disabled list Wednesday with a strained upper back. Darvish was scheduled to start Thursday night; he will be replaced by Ross Wolf. The Orioles used a four-run fourth to take a 6-0 lead. Lindblom walked the first two batters before Brian Roberts hit a liner to centre that bounced out of the glove of Engel Beltre and off the wall. It went for an RBI single, and Reimould followed with a towering fly ball that carried into the left-field seats, a few feet inside the foul pole. Texas got its lone run in the sixth when Ian Kinsler walked, tk third on a single by Nelson Cruz and scored when Beltre hit into a fielders choice. Chen used 21 pitches in a 1-2-3 first inning, and Lindblom needed 31 to get through a bottom half in which the Orioles got two singles. Baltimore went up 2-0 in the third. After Nate McLouth beat out an infield roller and Machado tripled to centre, a wild pitch allowed Machado to score. Chen retired 11 of the first 12 batters he faced, allowing only a walk until Beltre singled with two outs in the fourth. Just like old times. "For the last year and a half he was a consistent force for our rotation," catcher Matt Wieters said. "You know hes going to go out there and give you everything he has and compete. " NOTES: Machado leads the majors with 14 three-hit games. He is tied for the lead with 36 multihit games. ... Miguel Gonzalez (6-3) will take the mound for Baltimore in the series finale. ... In addition to activating Chen from the DL, the Orioles also recalled RHP Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk. ... Jurickson Profar, who usually plays the infield, made his second career start in left field for Texas. ...
