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 […]
Consider that the Buffalo Bills have gone consecutive weeks holding both Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers without a touchdown pass, and you will understand the formidable challenge that defense presents for the Oakland Raiders offense next Sunday. Yes, it could get ugly for rookie quarterback Derek Carr.
Following a 17-7 loss to the Seahawks, the 49ers are shut out of the playoffs with two games to play.

Fantasy football veterans know that you don’t have to be an elite team to have an elite fantasy football player (have you seen the Vikings’ record with Adrian Peterson on the roster?).

The Oakland Raiders fell to 0-10 this season with their 16th consecutive loss overall, dating back to 2013. The 13-6 loss to the San Diego Chargers on the road was a closely fought contest, with the Silver & Black having one last chance—late in the fourth quarter—to tie it up. But it was not to be.
It never seems to end for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: They always have a ton of players on the official injury report each week. That’s not the primary reason the Silver & Black can’t win a game, of course, but it’s been a consistent theme this year for the last winless team in the NFL.
