Opponent Profile: Seahawks Always Dangerous Opponent On Their Home Turf

The 0-7 Oakland Raiders travel to Seattle this weekend to take on the defending Super Bowl champions. And while the 4-3 Seahawks have already lost as many games as they did all of last year, they still are an opponent never to be taken lightly on their home field. Of course, the winless Silver & Black can’t take any team lightly these days as they look to snap a 13-game losing streak dating back to last season.

Team Grades: Raiders Play Close Again, But No Win Yet

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.

Raiders Offense Needs To Stay Wide Open Going Forward In 2014

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 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.

Raiders Defense Fails In Home Opener Against Texans

It was an ugly, ugly day for the Oakland Raiders in their 2014 home opener, as the offense couldn’t get anything going until late, and the defense did a Swiss cheese impression from the opening whistle.
