With the announcement late Monday that Derek Carr would the Oakland Raiders starting quarterback for their Week 1 matchup against the New York Jets on the road, it’s clear another new era has begun for the Silver & Black.
The Oakland Raiders, projected to finish last in the AFC West division this year by pretty much everyone, open the 2014 regular season next Sunday against the New York Jets on the road, and it could be the beginning of a long season for the Silver & Black.
If before the 2013 season you would tell Bolt fans that Cal rookie Keenan Allen would become the “go-to” guy for much of last season, many may have scratched their head a time or two. When all was said and done last season, Allen emerged not only as the Chargers’ top threat, but one of the top wide receiver stories around the NFL.
The 2013 New England Patriots overachieved this season, but they couldn’t overcome a powerful Denver Broncos squad in the AFC Championship Game.
While their record may not show it, the San Diego Chargers turned in a rather solid season when you take a look back at the 2013-14 campaign.
Both Patriots Nation and Broncos Country are looking forward to Brady/Manning XV. The rest of the planet will probably enjoy the game, too.
Being the sixth and final seed in the NFL playoffs usually means you’re a sizable underdog. When it comes to the San Diego Chargers, that holds true a second weekend straight.
The Denver Broncos are arguably the best team in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to win this week. In fact, many stats show Peyton Manning and his Broncos are more likely to lose than win, as the No. 1 seed against the No. 6 seeded San Diego Chargers.
Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had the worst game of his career this past Sunday against AFC West rivals the Kansas City Chiefs. Yet, Oakland will remain with Pryor as their starting quarterback.
The Oakland Raiders aren’t setting major strides this season, but they just got themselves out of the AFC West cellar by putting the San Diego Chargers in it. A fast start in a late game is what helped the silver and black attack pick up their second win.
