Team Grades: Once Again, Raiders Prove Coliseum Is No Easy Place To Win

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.

Does Tony Sparano Deserve A Chance With Oakland In 2015?

With all the talk about the Oakland Raiders acquiring San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh in a trade for draft picks, few seem to be considering the possibility the Silver & Black might retain Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano. One thing is certain: With an inferior roster, Sparano out-prepared and out-coached Harbaugh last week as the Raiders beat the 49ers, 24-13. That has to count for something.

Team Grades: Raiders Pull Off Big Upset, Prove They Don’t Need Harbaugh

No one outside the Oakland Raiders locker room thought they had a chance to win the Battle of the Bay in 2015, but that’s what happened Sunday at the Coliseum. The Silver & Black beat the San Francisco 49ers, 24-13, to win their second straight home game and improve their season record to 2-11.

Team Grades: Raiders Get A Big Fat ‘Fail’ In St. Louis

The 2014 Oakland Raiders had nothing on the field Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, as the Silver & Black couldn’t follow up their first win of the season with anything positive. The 52-0 loss in Week 13 was as bad as it gets in the modern-day NFL.

Raiders Do Not Want To Join NFL’s ‘Winless’ Club In 2014

In the modern NFL, only four teams have gone through a winless season: the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1982 Baltimore Colts and the 2008 Detroit Lions. If the Raiders can’t win this weekend in Cleveland, they could be looking at an 0-11 start—and that’s when the pressure will start to mount. Avoiding membership in this exclusive club will be paramount for the Silver & Black.

Opponent Profile: Are The Browns Beatable This Week For The Raiders?

The Oakland Raiders are 0-6, and they’re running out of winnable games on the schedule. Now, the Silver & Black travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns next Sunday, and maybe it’s a chance for the Raiders to win. The Browns are 3-3, but they just lost to previously-winless Jacksonville. Can Oakland take advantage?

Raiders Offense Needs To Stay Wide Open Going Forward In 2014

In Week Six, the Oakland Raiders’ offense set season-high marks in total yards, passing yards and rushing yards. If this is Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano’s plan for staying competitive with a bad defense, it’s not necessarily a bad plan. Rookie quarterback Derek Carr had his best game of the year against San Diego, and the sky is the limit for the youngster going forward this 2014 season.
