San Diego Chargers
OAKLAND (KCBS) – The Oakland Raiders are re-energizing their fans, winning their third home game in a row by beating a solid Bills team 26-24. “There are some signs of a football team,” John Madden […]
The Oakland Raiders improved to 3-12 on the season with a 26-24 win over the Buffalo Bills at the Coliseum on Sunday. That’s three straight wins at home for the Silver & Black if you’re keeping track at home, and it’s also the third consecutive victory at home over a team that had playoff aspirations still. Yes, these 2014 Raiders may have found the secret formula to defending their home turf—finally.
Quarterback Philip Rivers rallied San Diego back from a 21-point deficit in the second half, keeping the Chargers’ slim playoff hopes alive with a 38-35 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night.
While the 49ers are playing their last two games for pride, the San Diego Chargers are fighting for a playoff spot. They meet Saturday at Levi’s Stadium in a game that will be broadcast on KPIX 5 at 5:25 p.m.
The San Diego Chargers are still in the hunt for a playoff spot, but after three consecutive NFC Championship Game appearances, the San Francisco 49ers are out. They have the opportunity to play the spoiler for the Chargers, but what has happened to them this year? CBS Sports’ Steve Beuerlein spoke on this weekend’s west coast game and looks at what has gone wrong and right.
The Chargers, Raiders and Rams are the three teams considered top candidates for a move to Los Angeles, and Madden said that’s still the case. In fact, rumors are still swirling that someone will be playing in the Rose Bowl next year.
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.
Of all the NFL games this weekend, John Madden is most looking forward to the Eagles-Seahawks match-up in Philadelphia.
Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner is working behind the scenes to bring an NFL team to L.A. and the Raiders are on his list.
The 4-7 St. Louis Rams may seem to be weak at first glance, but as coached by long-time NFL man Jeff Fisher, the team once referred to as the “Lambs” is anything but right now. Remember, St. Louis has wins over Denver, San Francisco and Seattle this year—and they almost beat San Diego last weekend with a third-string quarterback. They’re still good.
