Raiders Reach New Low Getting Blown Out In Cincinnati

The Oakland Raiders have now lost four straight after they got embarrassed Sunday by the Bengals, 34-10. It was just ugly and there’s no way to sugarcoat how poorly the team is playing during this stretch. Frustrations boiled over with a bench-clearing brawl in the fourth quarter.

Hue Jackson and Carson Palmer the Focus of Raiders-Bengals Reunion

It’s a much anticipated game Sunday between the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders. It’s the first time for Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer to face his former team, and it’s the same for Cincinnati assistant coach Hue Jackson vs. the Raiders. Oakland has lost all three of its East Coast time zone games. The Raiders are just 5-25 in East Coast games since 2003.
