ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Oakland cornerback Michael Huff hasn't had much time to rest since changing positions to help the Raiders' injury-ravaged secondary.

He's not likely to get a break this week either.

After trying to knock down passes thrown by Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and Denver's Peyton Manning in successive weeks, Huff and the Raiders return from the bye with the task of trying to slow down what has been one of the NFL's most prolific passing attacks through the first month of the season.

Oakland's pass defense has struggled just defending one good receiver this season, let alone an explosive tandem like Atlanta's Roddy White and Julio Jones.
