The San Diego Chargers have lost three straight games, the last two by whopping margins. Does this mean the winless Oakland Raiders have a chance to beat them? The Silver & Black came close in the teams’ first matchup in Oakland, but this Week 11 contest will be in San Diego. There are always a lot of Raiders fans in San Diego, though, so maybe this is Oakland’s chance to get into the win column and avoid a 16-game losing streak.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-6, and they’re running out of winnable games on the schedule. Now, the Silver & Black travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns next Sunday, and maybe it’s a chance for the Raiders to win. The Browns are 3-3, but they just lost to previously-winless Jacksonville. Can Oakland take advantage?
The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
National sportswriters don’t appear too bowled over by the Oakland Raider roster additions of NFL veterans LaMarr Woodley, Matt Schaub, Justin Tuck and Maurice Jones-Drew. Pundits peg the Raiders as perhaps the worst team in the league, and ESPN has Head Coach Dennis Allen rated as the worst in the NFL. The Silver and Black also compete in a division where every other squad made the playoffs last year, prompting some to say they are already out of contention this season. Really? It may take everything breaking right for Raider Nation to make a playoff appearance, but surely there are teams with less upside than Oakland. Here are a few of the potential challengers for the NFL cellar.
It may be ugly at times in 2014, but Bortles will be unnerved and will benefit by going through any growing pains this fall as the Jaguars have much work to do before competing in the AFC South.
Let’s take a look at who the five worst teams will be heading into the 2014 NFL season.
Every NFL team has a chance… theoretically. But these 5 teams might as well pack it in until 2015.
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.
