Opponent Profile: Rams No Pushover Even For ‘Hot’ Raiders

The 4-7 St. Louis Rams may seem to be weak at first glance, but as coached by long-time NFL man Jeff Fisher, the team once referred to as the “Lambs” is anything but right now. Remember, St. Louis has wins over Denver, San Francisco and Seattle this year—and they almost beat San Diego last weekend with a third-string quarterback. They’re still good.

Injury Report: Short Week Does Raiders No Favors

The Oakland Raiders have a short turnaround this week between their Sunday loss in San Diego and their Thursday night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Coliseum. That means not a lot of healing time—both for those who played against the Chargers and those who did not.

Six Games To History For Raiders Now, And It’s Not Looking Good

The 0-10 Oakland Raiders have six games remaining, and if they want to avoid the wrong kind of historic effort, the Silver & Black need to win at least one of those games. But it’s not looking like that is going to happen, all things considered. Somewhere, the ghost of Al Davis is cringing and shaking his fist at the mess his once-proud team has become.

Opponent Profile: Chiefs Hot At The Wrong Time For The Raiders

The Kansas City Chiefs have been playing pretty well lately, as evidenced by their win over the Seattle Seahawks last weekend. Now, they get to the play the first of two games remaining on their schedule against the hapless Oakland Raiders, and if the Silver & Black want to win their first game in more than a year, they’ll need to be at their “best”—whatever that is.

Team Grades: Another “Almost” For The Raiders Against The Chargers

The Oakland Raiders fell to 0-10 this season with their 16th consecutive loss overall, dating back to 2013. The 13-6 loss to the San Diego Chargers on the road was a closely fought contest, with the Silver & Black having one last chance—late in the fourth quarter—to tie it up. But it was not to be.

Injury Report: Raiders Short-Handed Again For Matchup In San Diego

It never seems to end for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: They always have a ton of players on the official injury report each week. That’s not the primary reason the Silver & Black can’t win a game, of course, but it’s been a consistent theme this year for the last winless team in the NFL.

Opponent Profile: Can The Raiders Beat Suddenly Sinking Chargers?

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.

Team Grades: Raiders Can’t Sustain Strong Start Against Broncos

The Oakland Raiders are 0-9 this season, and the Silver & Black have now lost their last 15 games dating back to the 2013 season. Is there any win in sight? Not as long as the defense continues to stink…and the offense continues to struggle. No one is really doubting the effort of the 2014 Raiders, but the results just aren’t there.

Studs And Duds: Who Is Making An Impact For The Chargers?

While the Bolts are far from out of the playoff hunt, their road to the post-season looks to be much more daunting now then it did about a month or so ago.
