Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters grew up in Oakland and modeled his play after Charles Woodson, so it was fitting that his team squared off against the Raiders in the future Hall of Famer’s final NFL game on Sunday. What happened after the game was the ultimate display of respect, as Peters bowed down […]
The NFL is on spoiler alert in Week 17. This doesn’t mean that the ending of TV shows will be revealed. This type of spoiler is an NFL team that’s not going to the playoffs, but can prevent another team from making the playoffs or affect that team’s playoff seeding with a win. Depending on […]
Week 16 of the 2015 NFL season saw the New York Jets dispatch a rival foe, the Atlanta Falcons give a perfect team the taste of defeat and the NFC East crown a champion. The week also gave us another chapter in the Green Bay Packers’ tailspin, a blown opportunity in Baltimore and meltdowns in both […]
Oakland Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson said his final game at O.co Coliseum would be an emotional one, and judging by the speech he gave before Thursday night’s AFC West matchup, it certainly looks like that has been the case. The 18-year veteran gave a speech to fire up his team before the game, which […]
The Raiders couldn’t get their footing – literally and figuratively – today in a 30-20 loss at home to Green Bay that not only officially eliminated them from the playoffs but also ruled out the possibility of them having their first winning season since 2002. Now at 6-8 and with two games to play, the […]
Week 14 of the 2015 NFL season saw a pair of MVP candidates stay red hot, an emerging defensive terror put on a sack showcase and a handful of sophomore quarterbacks lead their teams to wins. Sunday also gave us ugly blowouts in Jacksonville and Cleveland, another difficult day for Dez in Green Bay and more missed […]
The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders took very different routes to get where they both stand heading into their Week 13 matchup at O.co Coliseum in Oakland, California this Sunday. The Raiders started out strong, winning two of their first three games and were 4-3 heading into Week 9. They tumbled from Weeks 9 […]
I talked Raiders/Vikings with Andy Carlson of Purple For The Win today. Here’s the podcast – enjoy!
With Sunday’s win over the Jets, the Oakland Raiders moved to 4-3 on the season and, somewhat unexpectedly, into the lead for Wild Card contention in the AFC. It wasn’t just that the Raiders won, either. They won convincingly against an opponent who is also currently in line to make the playoffs. The Raiders offense […]
It’s been a very encouraging start to the 2015 season for Raider Nation, who are praying that this is the year the Oakland Raiders finally claim a winning record for the first time in over a decade. At 2-1, there’s already a lot of optimism, as not only are the Raiders out to their best […]
When opposing one another in Week 3 this Sunday, either the Oakland Raiders or the Cleveland Browns will extend their win streak to two, as each franchise won their first game of the season last week. Even so, it is the second least expensive Raiders tickets on the secondary market for a game on the […]
With 2:44 seconds left in the game, Baltimore’s Justin Tucker kicked a 31 yard field goal to give the Ravens their first lead in the game, going up over the home-team Raiders 33-30. I thought – as many of you probably did – that this was yet another example of the Raiders being the Raiders […]
The Oakland Raiders aim to turn over a new leaf in 2015, as second-year quarterback Derek Carr looks to build a special chemistry with stud rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper in their first year together. After Cooper dazzled throughout his college career, Raider Nation is optimistic about a breakthrough for the club, which hasn’t made […]
