Like teammate Quinton Ganther (from Richmond, Calif.), Lorenzo Alexander grew up outside of Oakland. The Berkeley native, who missed last year’s Redskins game at San Francisco with a hamstring injury, enjoyed a much sweeter homecoming this time, as he had a sack and two special teams tackles.
Alexander had family in the stand and even went to visit friends in Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum’ infamous Black Hole.
“I had a lot of fun,” Alexander said. “I just tried to go out there and make plays. I never liked the Raiders growing up so to come home and beat up on them, you really can’t too much better than this.”
