Raiders want to clean some things up

Sunday’s divisional match-up between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders marks the beginning of a new era in the AFC West. No longer does the division belong to the San Diego Chargers; no longer are the Chargers a lock to make the playoffs. In fact, this year there will be no powder blue […]

Several Raiders look to Chiefs game to make a statement

There are also several Raider players who will be looking to make a statement as their season ends. Though they have no playoffs to fight for any longer, their season still have 60 minutes left in it– 60 minutes they don’t intend to waste. Darren McFadden is the first of those. He was named a […]

On the brink of 2011

The Oakland raiders are not going to be in the AFC playoff picture this year, but they have a legit opportunity to sweep their divisional play and put an end to a string of seven consecutive losing seasons this Sunday. The playoffs are good, but this is enough motivation to go out and put on their […]

Raiders send three to Pro Bowl

This year, the Oakland Raiders will send three players to the AFC side of the NFL Pro Bowl. Two of those three players will all be starters for the AFC side, Lechler and Asomugha. For Nnamdi, this will be his third consecutive start for the AFC and although his year has not been great, by […]

Raiders Week 16: Ballers & Busters

This game could have been huge for the Raiders. If the Chiefs had lost early in the day, the Raiders could have kept their playoff hopes alive with a win over the Colts.  But the Chiefs won, and then the Raiders lost, so in the end, it was a wash. At least for the Raiders, […]

Raiders can’t top Colts

If there was a play that really changed the swing of momentum for the Colts vs. the Raiders today, perhaps you could point to the pass interference call that went against Stanford Routt and put the ball deep in Raiders territory. Evidently, the rules change when you are the Raiders and you are playing the […]

Raiders out of playoff race

In the end, it was over before it began. That is the Raiders playoff hopes ended before this week’s matchup with the Colts kicked off. The Raiders knew that they would know (if they wanted to know) whether the game today would hold playoff implications or not before it began. In this case, they had […]

Raiders will look to the Hendersons for a lift vs the Colts

The Raiders Were at full strength along the lines going into last week’s game against the Broncos. The Raider may have won the pivotal matchup, but they also may have lost a couple of pivotal starters in the process. Richard Seymour went down with a Hamstring injury before halftime and has not played all week. […]

Raiders keys to victory over Indy

The Oakland Raiders wish the outcome of Sunday’s game could be more of a control your own destiny scenario. There is a chance they could win the game against a highly efficient Indianapolis Colts football team and still miss the playoffs as they watch the Kansas City Chiefs ride off into the sunset with the […]

Raiders expect big day from McFadden against Colts

The Raiders meet up with the Indianapolis Colts in Oakland this Sunday. Most fans are well aware at this point just how important this game is. And the run game will be featured yet again. Last week Darren McFadden went over 1000 yards on his first carry of the game. By the end of the […]

McClain vs. Manning mindgames

A match-up within the mach-up this weekend that you will want to keep an eye on will be Rolando McClain, the Oakland Raiders rookie middle linebacker, against Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts veteran quarterback. While McClain may not have the accolades of Manning like four-time NFL MVP, 11 straight 4,000 yard passing seasons, sixty-three 300-yard […]

Raiders Week 15: Ballers & Busters

It was a damp day in Oakland for the Raiders matchup with the division rival Denver Broncos. And for the Raiders, the first half was as messy as the field. They got things started off with a bang when, after stopping the Broncos with a three and out, it took the Raiders one play to […]

Raiders overcome overconfidence to pull out win

Just a week after giving up 38 points to the Jaguars, the Raider defense doesn’t seem to have lost any of their confidence. If anything, it appears they have somehow gained some. They came out in this game with a lot of fire, but that fire seemed to be put out in the first half […]

Raiders improve to 5-0 against the division

The Oakland Raiders got it done at home today and improved to 5-0 in their division as well as going to 5-2 at home this season. While they haven’t been getting it done during their road trips this year, or their games outside of their division, they did manage to accomplish their first no double-digit […]
