The Oakland Raiders have plenty of duds to explore so far in the young 2014 season, but it’s tough to find some studs in the debacle that has contributed to an 0-4 start to the year. The Silver & Black just don’t have much to highlight right now, which means it’s going to be a long season.

Raiders Can Focus On Evaluating Talent For 2014 Instead Of Worrying About Injuries This Week In San Diego
The 4-10 Oakland Raiders have a mostly-healthy roster for their Week 16 matchup on the road against the 7-7 San Diego Chargers, which means the Silver and Black will be focusing on shaping their 2014 plans a little early this holiday season.

The Oakland Raiders aren’t setting major strides this season, but they just got themselves out of the AFC West cellar by putting the San Diego Chargers in it. A fast start in a late game is what helped the silver and black attack pick up their second win.
