Consider that the Buffalo Bills have gone consecutive weeks holding both Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers without a touchdown pass, and you will understand the formidable challenge that defense presents for the Oakland Raiders offense next Sunday. Yes, it could get ugly for rookie quarterback Derek Carr.
The San Diego Chargers have lost three straight games, the last two by whopping margins. Does this mean the winless Oakland Raiders have a chance to beat them? The Silver & Black came close in the teams’ first matchup in Oakland, but this Week 11 contest will be in San Diego. 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.
From players to referees to fans, everyone is getting in on the Week 9 action…but maybe not in the way they imagined. Here’s 5 people who were in the right (or wrong) place at the right time…
The Colts went up 24-0 in the first quarter this Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup. Could’ve been another blowout, but the Texans made of game of it.
Colts-Texans could come down to a last-second field goal, and it appears to be an excellent week to play perhaps the greatest placekicker in NFL history in the Colts’ Adam Vinatieri.
Could this be it-the first competitive Thursday night game of the 2014 NFL season? The Colts visit Houston as just a three-point favorite, and both teams are 3-2, so at the risk of being the Mary Swanson to your Lloyd Christmas, I’m saying there’s a chance.
The Houston Texans are looking better in 2014 and the Indianapolis Colts have turned things around after a slow start to the year. Former NFL quarterback and CBS analyst Chris Simms took time to talk to me about the upcoming AFC South battle on Thursday Night Football, and he had some great things to say.
The Oakland Raiders defense isn’t very good even when healthy, but with multiple injuries to key players on the defensive side of the ball, the Silver & Black may be in for a long day on Sunday in New England.
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.
