Raiders coach Allen agrees with owner's assessment team is regressing after 3rd straight loss

Coach Dennis Allen says he agrees with Oakland owner Mark Davis' assessment that the Raiders have regressed in recent weeks and he is going to do what it takes to turn the team around.

The Raiders (3-7) have lost three straight games following Sunday's 38-17 home loss to New Orleans that led to booing and early departures by the frustrated fans. Davis met in the locker room after the game with Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie and said he was embarrassed by the team's play and apologized to the fans.

Allen said Monday he was "right there" with Davis, adding that he was frustrated and disappointed and that the losing hurt. Oakland has allowed 135 points the past three games and has been outscored by 66 points in that span.
