Any time a team allows an offensive NFL record to be set against them, it hasn’t been a good day.
Oakland’s roster is pretty healthy right now, which is good news as the Raiders host the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday and try to get back to .500 on the 2013 season.
It was announced on Monday that Michael Vick was already ruled out for the Raiders game against the Eagles in Week 9. Chip Kelly was expected to bring in an explosive new offensive scheme that would send the Eagles soaring, but injuries have caused a dive bomb and the Raiders are looking to take advantage.
The Philadelphia Eagles were expected to compete for not only a playoff spot this season, but the NFC’s spot in the Super Bowl. Now, they’re sitting at 3-5 and down to their third string quarterback who is just a rookie out of USC. The Oakland Raiders are hoping to have a field day with Matt Barkley leading the Eagles to the Coliseum.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s 93 yard sprint for a touchdown set the tone early as the Raiders beat the Steelers 21-18 in Oakland Sunday.
The Oakland Raiders broke a decade-long losing streak coming off of a bye week by taking down the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-18. It was a victory led by a running quarterback and a swarming defense and one that wasn’t nearly as close as the score indicates.
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.
The studs and duds for the Oakland Raiders so far this season. Read who has been good and who has been bad!
Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had the worst game of his career this past Sunday against AFC West rivals the Kansas City Chiefs. Yet, Oakland will remain with Pryor as their starting quarterback.
Despite starting with a 2-4 record so far this season, quarterback Terrelle Pryor feels that the Raiders will make playoffs.
