Team Grades: Rough Third Quarter Dooms Raiders In Kansas City

Trailing by just four points in the third quarter, the Oakland Raiders gave up three touchdowns in less than five minutes and lost to the Kansas City Chiefs by a 31-13 score. It wasn’t a good road effort for the Silver & Black, as they drop to 2-12 on the season.

Does Tony Sparano Deserve A Chance With Oakland In 2015?

With all the talk about the Oakland Raiders acquiring San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh in a trade for draft picks, few seem to be considering the possibility the Silver & Black might retain Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano. One thing is certain: With an inferior roster, Sparano out-prepared and out-coached Harbaugh last week as the Raiders beat the 49ers, 24-13. That has to count for something.

Opponent Profile: Chiefs Want Revenge And A Playoff Spot

The Oakland Raiders broke their 16-game losing streak last month against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Coliseum, but now the Silver & Black go to Arrowhead Stadium in Missouri for the rematch. The Chiefs have lost three in a row, and they are on the verge of playoff elimination—they might blame the Raiders for that, so there’s going to be some nasty waiting for Oakland this weekend.

Team Grades: Raiders Pull Off Big Upset, Prove They Don’t Need Harbaugh

No one outside the Oakland Raiders locker room thought they had a chance to win the Battle of the Bay in 2015, but that’s what happened Sunday at the Coliseum. The Silver & Black beat the San Francisco 49ers, 24-13, to win their second straight home game and improve their season record to 2-11.

Injury Report: Raiders Somewhat Healthy For Big Battle Of The Bay On Sunday

Compared to previous weeks, the Oakland Raiders have a little health momentum on their side heading into Sunday’s home matchup with Bay Area rival San Francisco. Forget the Harbaugh intrigue for a few moments: The Silver & Black might be as healthy as they’ve been all years—not counting the players already on the season-ending IR, of course. Oakland always could use some of those players, but they’re lost for the season, of course.

Harbaugh Not The Solution For The Raiders In 2015 … Or Ever

The Oakland Raiders should have no interest whatsoever in “acquiring” Jim Harbaugh to coach their team in 2015, because they don’t have enough talent to justify the move—in addition to the draft picks they would have to give up to get the fiery coach. No, the Silver & Black should look elsewhere for a new leader, and they’ll need all their draft picks and current young players to attract the right coach, anyway.
