There are always a lot of Raiders fans in San Diego, though, so maybe this is Oakland’s chance to get into the win column and avoid a 16-game losing streak.

The Denver Broncos are coming off a loss, and that means bad news for the winless Oakland Raiders. Peyton Manning loves to dissect a bad defense, and that’s what he’s prepping to do right now—leaving the Silver & Black on the spot for Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the defending AFC champs.

Thursday Night Fantasy Starters: Andrew Luck, Arian Foster And Reggie Wayne

Raiders’ Road Just Gets Rougher With Trip To New England In Week 3

The Oakland Raiders are 0-2 with no relief in sight, as they travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Week Three. That’s not the remedy for what ails the Silver & Black, of course, so it could be an ugly week for the team. Be prepared, Oakland fans, for a disastrous road trip.
