CSN Bay Area reports that the Oakland Raiders have signed home-grown running back Maurice Jones-Drew. At age 29, coming off an injury-plagued season with Jacksonville, is Jones-Drew healthy enough to help the Raiders?
The Oakland Raiders will be done for the 2013 season when that final whistle blows on Sunday afternoon at the O.co Coliseum, but the Denver Broncos have their sights set on the Super Bowl.
It seems short yardage touchdown passes in the NFL are now more common than short yardage running touchdowns.
As the Oakland Raiders enter the final stretch of the 2013 season, a quick glance at their schedule shows some missed opportunities.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are winless no more as they held off the Miami Dolphins to win 22-19 at home Monday night. The Jacksonville Jaguars also won their first game of the season on Sunday.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s 93 yard sprint for a touchdown set the tone early as the Raiders beat the Steelers 21-18 in Oakland Sunday.
After beating up on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, there is not a NFL team in a better position than the San Francisco 49ers. They have won 5 straight, have a week off to rest up, continue to get better on the field, and with several players getting over lingering injures, the 49ers figure to be even better the next time they hit the field.
Colin Kaepernick ran and threw his way to victory Sunday, leading the San Francisco 49ers over the Jacksonville Jaguars 42-10 at Wembley Stadium.
San Francisco enters this week’s game healthy. They had 7 players limited in practice Thursday, but not a single one will really be hampered by it during the game. Jacksonville on the other hand will be affected on both sides of the ball by various injured starters.
With the seemingly incomparable and record-setting offense set to square off against the monumentally futile Jacksonville Jaguars this week, the line of Denver -28 ties a record for the biggest spread ever set.
