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.

Injury Report: A Few Key Question Marks For Raiders This Weekend

So much for staying healthy after the bye week. The Oakland Raiders’ official injury list almost doubled this week from last, as eight players are nursing sore body parts. How that will impact Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at the Coliseum is still not clear.

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.

Team Grades: Raiders Can’t Hold On In Fourth Quarter Vs. Chargers

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. But in the end, the San Diego Chargers’ offense was too much for the Silver & Black’s defense, and the Chargers escaped with a 31-28 victory over the Raiders.

Opponent Profile: Could Bolts Get Caught Looking Ahead?

Raiders Fire Allen, Name Sparano Interim Head Coach But Nothing Will Change

The Oakland Raiders fired Head Coach Dennis Allen after an 0-4 start, and they have named former Miami Dolphins head coach and current Oakland offensive line coach Tony Sparano as the interim leader. However, this won’t change anything for the Silver & Black, as they still have an old and talent-bereft roster. What matters now is the plan for a permanent coach in 2015.

Injury Report: Raiders Linebackers Hurting For London Match Against Dolphins

The Oakland Raiders defense needs all the help it can get every game, so when three linebackers could possibly miss the next contest, it’s something to be concerned about for the team. Heading into Sunday’s Wembley Stadium matchup against the Miami Dolphins, the Silver & Black also will be without backup quarterback Matt Schaub.

The Oakland Raiders were driving for the tying touchdown against the New England Patriots on the road late in the fourth quarter when disaster struck: a deflected interception ended the game with the Raiders coming up short, 16-9. The defense did its job for once; the offense did not.
