Raiders Fight Hard But Lose In Season Finale

A frustrating season for the Oakland Raiders came to a merciful end on Sunday with a 24-21 loss to the San Diego Chargers. The Raiders finished the season with a 4-12 record. The good news is that Terrelle Pryor showed why he was picked by Al Davis just months before he passed away. The loss ensures the Raiders will be the overall #3 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft

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 Might See Return of McFadden and Goodson For First Time In Nearly A Month

Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson finally returned to practice after missing three games with high ankle sprains. They won’t see teammate Rolando McClain who has been suspended without pay for two games for conduct detrimental to the team. The Browns have various injuries but their key players should all be active this Sunday.

Rolando McClain Might Soon Be An Ex-Raider

Troubled linebacker Rolando McClain was absent from practice Wednesday for “team related issues.” McClain has been a major disappointment and has seen his playing time drastically reduced since the first month of the season. Running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson returned to practice for the first time in nearly a month.

Raiders Without McFadden, Goodson, and Seymour for second straight game

The Raiders continue to have many key players on the injured list. Once again they’ll be without running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson. The Saints have few injuries and with a nearly full roster, they’ll be a tough challenge for the Silver and Black
