SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – It’s the Cowboys-Lions, Steelers-Ravens, Bengals-Colts and Panthers-Cardinals in this weekend’s NFL wild card play. “I like Dallas,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “Dallas was always a joke, […]
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won an NFL playoff game since January 6, 1990. They beat the Houston Oilers—right there, that tells you it was a long time ago—by a 41-14 score in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs. Since then, the Bengals have lost all five postseason contests they’ve played in. That needs to change this weekend.
The Indianapolis Colts haven’t forgotten their last meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals in week seven of the 2014 regular season, and look to capitalize on Bengals letdown.
The 3-12 Oakland Raiders travel to Denver for their 2014 finale against the Broncos, and it’s probable the Broncos may not have much to play for, in terms of playoff seeding. But Denver will still want to win the game, and the Raiders haven’t been very good on the road this year at all—the Silver & Black is winless, in fact, away from the Coliseum.
Playing in the weakest division in the NFL, the New Orleans Saints were eliminated from the playoffs Sunday as they lost their fifth straight at home. The Falcons beat them 30-14. What happened to the Saints and their star quarterback Drew Brees?
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has been known to congratulate defensive linemen after they sack him. “He’s trying to be nice to them so that they won’t keep getting him,” John Madden […]
Washington coach Jay Gruden has announced quarterback Colt McCoy will start Sunday’s game against Indianapolis, leaving the future of Robert Griffin III in doubt.
The Denver Broncos are coming off a loss, and that means bad news for the winless Oakland Raiders. Peyton Manning loves to dissect a bad defense, and that’s what he’s prepping to do right now—leaving the Silver & Black on the spot for Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the defending AFC champs.
In the modern NFL, only four teams have gone through a winless season: the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1982 Baltimore Colts and the 2008 Detroit Lions. If the Raiders can’t win this weekend in Cleveland, they could be looking at an 0-11 start—and that’s when the pressure will start to mount. Avoiding membership in this exclusive club will be paramount for the Silver & Black.
In Week Six, the Oakland Raiders’ offense set season-high marks in total yards, passing yards and rushing yards. If this is Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano’s plan for staying competitive with a bad defense, it’s not necessarily a bad plan. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr had his best game of the year against San Diego, and the sky is the limit for the youngster going forward this 2014 season.
