The Oakland Raiders improved to 3-12 on the season with a 26-24 win over the Buffalo Bills at the Coliseum on Sunday. That’s three straight wins at home for the Silver & Black if you’re keeping track at home, and it’s also the third consecutive victory at home over a team that had playoff aspirations still. Yes, these 2014 Raiders may have found the secret formula to defending their home turf—finally.
Derek Carr threw two touchdown passes and Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals to help the Oakland Raiders knock the Buffalo Bills from playoff contention with a 26-24 victory.
Once again, six different Oakland Raiders players did not practice this week, as the team prepares for its final home game of the year on Sunday.

Count on one thing, though: Whatever happens to the team, it won’t be without controversy.
The Bills came through with their biggest win of the season, and they remain alive in the playoff race although it will still be a difficult task.

Yes, it could get ugly for rookie quarterback Derek Carr.
There may be just two games left for the Oakland Raiders franchise, according to a new report from CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
