Terrelle Pryor Should Get More Playing Time In Raiders’ Finale

With the Raiders mired in another losing season, now is the time for quarterback Terrelle Pryor to get his chance to prove to his coaches and the fans what he can do. The Raiders are guaranteed a top five pick in the upcoming NFL draft so there’s nothing to lose by playing him. In fact, a loss by the team only helps to ensure a better draft pick.

Raiders Listless Against Panthers in 17-6 Loss

The Oakland Raiders lost again to fall to 4-11 Sunday. Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer was injured during the game and the team didn’t play any better with backup QB Matt Leinart. Few positives can be found after the Raiders lost their 10th straight game in the Eastern time zone.

Raiders RB Mike Goodson Is Eager To Play Against His Former Team

Oakland Raiders backup running back Mike Goodson will play against his former team, the Carolina Panthers, for the first time since he was traded back in March. Head coach Dennis Allen says he will continue to evaluate younger players in game situations. Kicker Sebastian Janikowski was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after he made 5-of-6 field goals to beat the Kansas City Chiefs.

Raiders Try To Build Momentum From Sunday’s Win

This weekend, the Oakland Raiders will try to make it two straight wins for the first time since late October. Their final two games are on the road at Carolina and at San Diego. Going inside the numbers from Sunday’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Raiders had one of their best defensive games in decades.

Raiders Finally End The Losing Streak

Six straight losses was enough for the Raiders, who finally are back in the win column. Oakland improved to 4-10 and ensured they will not have the top draft pick in 2013. More importantly, the Raiders are looking for some consistency with two games remaining.

Raiders Make More Roster Changes

The 3-10 Raiders continue to make roster cuts to players who aren’t performing as the front office expected. This week featured the release of cornerback Ron Bartell and the reinstatement of disgrunted linebacker Rolando McClain. There is also speculation that long-time punter Shane Lechler will not return next season given his advanced age and high salary.

Raiders Will Audition Young Players And Look Ahead To Next Season

The 3-10 Oakland Raiders have three games left on the schedule. Owner Mark Davis has already expressed his frustration with the team’s struggles over the last month and the status of head coach Dennis Allen is in question. Many speculate Allen could get fired if he does not end the losing streak.

Raiders Downward Spiral Continues

It’s been a tough week for the Oakland Raiders. They’ve lost two games in four days. Head coach Dennis Allen left the team to be with his father who died from a heart attack. The team has suffered six straight losses with no end in sight.
