A winless beginning to his NFL career certainly wasn’t what Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr anticipated coming out of training camp. Yet if Carr is feeling any strain or pressure coming from Oakland’s 0-6 start, he’s […]
In the modern NFL, only four teams have gone through a winless season: the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1982 Baltimore Colts and the 2008 Detroit Lions. If the Raiders can’t win this weekend in Cleveland, they could be looking at an 0-11 start—and that’s when the pressure will start to mount. Avoiding membership in this exclusive club will be paramount for the Silver & Black.
The Raiders probably would have wanted the Browns to win in Week Seven at Jacksonville so they could have caught them playing with less than full intensity.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-6, and they’re running out of winnable games on the schedule. Now, the Silver & Black travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns next Sunday, and maybe it’s a chance for the Raiders to win. The Browns are 3-3, but they just lost to previously-winless Jacksonville. Can Oakland take advantage?
Overall, the Oakland Raiders played a solid game against one of the best teams in the NFL for the second week in a row. But the Silver & Black still don’t have a win in 2014, and that falls on the defense again. The offense is showing life; the defense just is painful to watch every time out.
Andre Holmes is settling into his role as Oakland’s big-play wide receiver. With two long catches last week, including a 77-yard score on the first possession of the game, the former undrafted player from tiny Hillsdale […]
So much for staying healthy after the bye week. The Oakland Raiders’ official injury list almost doubled this week from last, as eight players are nursing sore body parts. How that will impact Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at the Coliseum is still not clear.
Oakland cornerback DJ Hayden practiced for the first time since breaking his foot in June, a potential boost for the Raiders’ struggling defense. The 12th overall pick in 2013, Hayden has been on the physically-unable-to-perform list […]
In Week Six, the Oakland Raiders’ offense set season-high marks in total yards, passing yards and rushing yards. If this is Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano’s plan for staying competitive with a bad defense, it’s not necessarily a bad plan. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr had his best game of the year against San Diego, and the sky is the limit for the youngster going forward this 2014 season.
The Cardinals continue to write a winning script, and the best aspect of their 30-20 victory over the Washington Redskins in Week Six was the return of quarterback Carson Palmer following his shoulder and nerve problems.
Next up for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: the Arizona Cardinals, the team currently leading the tough NFC West with a 4-1 record this season. The Cardinals aren’t a dominating team, however, and if the Silver & Black can play well for a second week in a row for once, they may have a shot at the upset at the Coliseum.
The 2014 Oakland Raiders cam every close to getting their first win of the season on Sunday. In fact, they held the lead in the second half for the first time all season. But in the end, the San Diego Chargers’ offense was too much for the Silver & Black’s defense, and the Chargers escaped with a 31-28 victory over the Raiders.
