The last thing the 2014 Oakland Raiders need is more injuries to their defense, but that’s what they get this week as they prepare to play the Cleveland Browns Sunday on the road. If the Silver & Black can’t stop anyone’s offense, they’ll never win a game this year.
Discarded or unwanted by their former teams, players with a history of success in the NFL talked about the motivation of having a “chip on the shoulder” when they arrived in Oakland.
After a disappointing first day in the market, the Raiders Thursday signed two free agents, defensive end Justin Tuck and linebacker LaMarr Woodley, both seen as top pass rushers in the NFL.
The Oakland Raiders do not have a good record after bye weeks even though they usually play considerably better after an extra week off. They’re looking to change that and they have to do it by beating a streaking Pittsburgh Steelers team.
