Ben Heeney tallied four tackles (three solo) with a sack.
I don't have the snap count data, but Heeney was on the field much more than Curtis Lofton. It's the right move, as Heeney is more athletic and has been more productive than the veteran Lofton. If Sunday's game was any indication, the changing of the guard occurred and Heeney may be the present and the future at middle linebacker for the Raiders.
