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.
The Dallas Cowboys beat the Seattle Seahawks and have extended their winning streak to five games. Here is a look at the Dallas Cowboys team grades for the big win.
With the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks coming up next on their schedule, the Dallas Cowboys learned that they may be without two of their starting linebackers in Rolando McClain and Bruce Carter.
Fans in the bay area have been debating for 2 years if Alex Smith is the better option at quarterback for the 49ers. After watching he and Colin Kaepernick face each other this past weekend, and looking at how their numbers, it’s obvious San Francisco nailed this one.
Rolando McClain has been better than anyone expected with the Dallas Cowboys this season and the team wants to sign him to a long-term deal.
The Dallas Cowboys bring their 4-1 record into Seattle to battle the Super Bowl champions in front of the legendary 12th Man.
The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
Including Sunday’s Week Five action, the San Diego Chargers are 4-1, the Denver Broncos are 3-1, and the Kansas City Chiefs are 2-3. Each team has a positive points differential, while the Oakland Raiders are 0-4 with a minus-52 differential. Yes, it’s going to be a long season for the Silver & Black.
Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.
The defending Super Bowl champions looked in 2013 form when they took apart the Packers last week, something many around the NFL (especially the San Francisco 49ers can’t be happy about).
