From players to referees to fans, everyone is getting in on the Week 9 action…but maybe not in the way they imagined. Here’s 5 people who were in the right (or wrong) place at the right time…
Back in the calendar year of 1984, a whopping 30 years ago now, the then-Los Angeles Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks played two memorable AFC playoff games. The first in January 1984 saw the Raiders beat the Seahawks, and the second in December 1984 saw the tables turned as Seattle knocked out the defending Super Bowl champions.
Quarterback Colt McCoy led Washington to a 20-17 overtime upset over the Cowboys in Arlington Monday night.
The 0-7 Oakland Raiders travel to Seattle this weekend to take on the defending Super Bowl champions. And while the 4-3 Seahawks have already lost as many games as they did all of last year, they still are an opponent never to be taken lightly on their home field. Of course, the winless Silver & Black can’t take any team lightly these days as they look to snap a 13-game losing streak dating back to last season.
Next up for the 2014 Oakland Raiders: the Arizona Cardinals, the team currently leading the tough NFC West with a 4-1 record this season. The Cardinals aren’t a dominating team, however, and if the Silver & Black can play well for a second week in a row for once, they may have a shot at the upset at the Coliseum.
This Week 4 NFC East game felt like a must-win for both teams. The Giants played like it, dominating in a 45-14 win. The Redskins looked overmatched.
Here’s a look at the key fantasy players on the Giants and Redskins, and our recommendations on who to start and sit in your fantasy football lineup.
The Giants smacked the Texans 30-17 in Week 3, while the Redskins suffered a tough loss to the Eagles. These NFC East rivals will kick off Thursday at 8:25 ET on CBS.
The Washington Redskins and New York Giants both have 1-2 records, and are dealing with their own issues, but something has to give. Thursday Night Football pits them head-to-head in an NFC East battle, and legendary San Diego Chargers quarterback and CBS Sports’ analyst Dan Fouts took some time to speak on the game and both teams.http://www.cbssports.com/cbssports/team/dfouts
The Oakland Raiders gave up 402 yards in their opener against the New York Jets on the road, even though they gave up just 19 points. Some of that was due to the Jets QB struggling to hold on to the ball, of course, but the Silver & Black defense will need to be a lot tougher at home in Week Two for the Raiders to emerge victorious against an efficient Houston Texans offense.
