Is It Time To Focus On Next Season?

By: Chris Loveland Well we all knew this season’s start was a mirage. But, nobody saw a fall from grace quite like this. Derek Carr has looked very average lately, the defense stinks, and the special teams play is subpar. But there is hope! 1.) Derek Carr is a legit franchise quarterback. 2.) Charles Woodson discovered the fountain of youth. The actual fountain of youth. 3.) Latavius Murray is a…

New Era in New Orleans?

October 11, 2015

By: Ethan Labouisse With Sunday’s loss to the Eagles, the New Orleans Saints fall to 1-4, and the uncertainty about the future of Tom Benson’s club grows. Bleacher Report’s NFL Insider Jason Cole reports that the face of the franchise, Drew Brees, is now unlikely to receive another contract with the Saints after its expiration in 2016 because of the rotator cuff injury he suffered against the Buccaneers. Sean Payton,…


Raiders Lose a Close Game Against the Broncos

October 11, 2015

By: Chris Loveland The Raiders put up a great fight today, but in the end it was not enough. Today’s game was Carr’s chance to show the league he deserves to be in the conversation as one of the top QB’s in the league. Carr did thoroughly outplay Eli’s older brother, but it was not enough for the W. Carr went for 249 yards, a TD, and only 1 INT….


Raiders Fall to Bears in Heartbreaking Fashion

October 4, 2015

By: Chris Loveland Well…that hurt. We did not expect the Raiders to go 15-1. But, this loss is a tough one to swallow. The Raiders should have beaten the hapless Bears, but today they never pulled away. The Raiders continued to allow the Bears to hang around all game, just as they did with The Ravens, and The Browns. But, their late game magic did not hold true again this…


Raiders Hold Off the Browns for a 27-20 Victory

September 27, 2015

By: Chris Loveland This game was far closer than it should’ve been. The Raiders came out of the gates hot, as they did against the Ravens. And, just like the Ravens game, they squandered their early lead. Latavius Murray, Amari Cooper, and Derek Carr all had huge days. Cooper had 8 receptions that went for 134 yards, but did lose a costly fumble. Murray sliced and diced the browns for 139…


Carr Helps Raiders Come Back to Beat Ravens

September 20, 2015

What a game. The Raiders came out firing with a quick TD, then a forced turnover which led to a Janikowski field goal, to go up a quick 10-0. The first Raiders drive started slow with two drops from Cooper, showing he is human after all, but in the next few plays he took a Derek Carr pass 68 yards for his first career score, and the first Touchdown of the…

December 7, 2014

By: Max Klotz Final Score: Oakland Raiders 24, San Francisco 49ers 13 The Raiders seemed to have brushed off their 52-0 loss to the Rams in Week 13. The Raiders’ defense had one of their best games of the year, and Derek Carr had one of his best performances of his young career. On the first play of the game, Colin Kaepernick dropped back and threw a deep sideline pattern…


Raiders Obliterated in Saint Louis

November 30, 2014

By: Max Klotz Final Score: St. Louis Rams 52, Oakland Raiders 0 The Raiders may have reached a new low on Sunday. The Raiders failed to score any points for the first time this season. Oakland actually ran more plays than St. Louis and won the time of possession battle by ten minutes. However, Oakland literally gave the game away by committing five turnovers. Derek Carr threw two interceptions and…

November 20, 2014
