Latest Las Vegas NFL
The 49ers have hit rock bottom. While they are still in the playoff hunt, they dealt themselves a crippling blow losing to the Oakland Raiders. The team lost this one as a unit with the offense, defense and special teams all failing to show up.
For the New England Patriots, they left town with what they wanted, a 23-14 victory. Meantime, the Chargers continue to show that they are not quite there with the upper echelon of the AFC, particularly the Patriots and the Denver Broncos.
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.
The only players going to miss the Raiders and 49ers game are possibly two offensive lineman. Each side has one of them, so at least in terms of injuries the two teams are even.
Two teams only separated by a game in the AFC standings, the Patriots and Chargers, have different agendas when the two square off in front of a national audience on NBC.
The Dallas Cowboys have found themselves in a must-win situation after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Here is a look at the Dallas Cowboys vs. Chicago Bears injury report.
The AFC is a very tight race as the season begins to round to a close and numerous teams are still fighting for a playoff spot. CBS Sports and former special teams ace Steve Tasker spoke on the match-up between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins on “Thursday Night Football.”
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.
The Dallas Cowboys playoff hopes are in danger and Michael Irvin said that this week’s game with the Chicago Bears is a must-win if they want to make the playoffs at all.
