"Yeah, for sure. When they came out with the schedule and I saw that we were playing Oakland, I had it on my calendar, of course," said Holmes. "I was excited to compete with them, all of them are like family to me, I spent four years there. It felt good to be able to play well against them and get a win." Holmes had only eight catches for 46 yards coming into the game, although two of his catches were touchdowns. Against the Raiders, he made three receptions for 51 yards and scored his third TD. His 36-yard reception set up another touchdown, and both that catch, and the TD, were superb toe-tappers on the sideline.
