Ryan getting job done in Oakland

Updated: November 2, 2006, 3:52 PM ET
Lost in the Raiders' 2-5 start and 32nd ranked offense has been the outstanding job the Oakland defense has been doing under the tutelage of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

Going into Week 9, the Raiders were ranked eighth in total defense (No. 1 vs. the pass and No. 24 vs. the run). After a league low five interceptions last season they are ranked No. 2 in interceptions this season with 10 through the first seven games of the season. They are also ranked fourth in first downs allowed.
