3 Raiders earn postseason honors

The Pro Football Writers of America have recognized three Raiders players for their performance during the 2021 season.

Raiders punter A.J. Cole was named to the PFWA All-NFL team. Defensive end Maxx Crosby earned All-AFC honors, and safety Tre’von Moehrig was named to the All-Rookie team.

Cole led the NFL with a 50-yard average on 64 punts. That included a long punt of 71 yards.

Crosby led the NFL with 100 quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. It was the most pressures by any player in a single season since PFF began tracking that stat. Crosby also had eight sacks.

Moehrig, a second-round pick in 2021 out of TCU, was the 23rd- ranked safety in 2021, according to PFF, while starting every game.
