Oakland is home to a playoff team, not the Raiders but the A’s who will need the O.co stadium for their playoff game. The game will require a configuration back to a football facility and thus the delay.

On Sunday against the Washington Redskins, we finally got our first real glimpse of Rashad Jennings in a silver and black uniform. While Jennings had a mediocre 3 yards per carry, he did have seven receptions for 71 yards. It was puzzling to see Jennings get only six carries during his first three games but after Darren McFadden’s 235832th injury expect to Jennings carry the rock...
This week the Oakland Raiders had injuries to two important pieces of their offense in both Darren McFadden and Marcel Reece. While the Raiders have struggled on offense the two backs were doing a pretty good job at moving the sticks. Well the Raiders brought in a solid player today who could play a vital […]
What could have been a plus matchup for the Raiders ended up being a nightmare of a home game. A frustrating loss to the previously 0-3 Redskins, coupled with injuries to a lot of key players, made for a pretty unenjoyable Sunday for Raiders fans. Let’s look over what went wrong on this fateful Sunday.
1. Matt Flynn cannot start anymore.
I personally caught myself screaming...
How did Matt Flynn get a $20 million contract? Flynn has no pocket awareness and reads a defense as if they were playing with braille. QB Terrelle Pryor's job security skyrocketed in the wake of Flynn's performance.
In the beginning of the game against the Washington Redskins, Oakland had the lead until the third quarter due to the Redskins’ disastrous offensive performance. What was the turning point in the game that caused the Redskins to overturn the Raiders? Washington’s defense picked up the slack of their offense, resulting in an ending score of Washington 24, Oakland 14.
How did quarterback...
Raiders coach Dennis Allen went back and forth on whether to play Terrelle Pryor against Washington until finally reaching a decision the night before Sunday's game.
Allen said he chose to err on the side of "extreme caution" in defending his decision Sunday after a 24-14 loss at O.co Coliseum.
"We were actually at a point where we were ready to go with Terrelle...
After today’s loss to the Redskins, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen told the media that he expects Terrelle Pryor to be ready to play next week.
Allen said team wanted to exercise extreme caution with Pryor, so held him out. Feels good about him playing next week, per Jim Trotter of SI.com.
While the Redskins played a good game and earned a tough road win, the Raiders might...
Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn will start Sunday against the Washington Redskins a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Terrelle Pryor who had started the first three weeks had been listed as questionable due to a concussion suffered Monday night.
Pryor who is the Raiders' leading rusher through three games with 198 yards passed his final concussion protocol...
Offense:With Pryor out, the Raiders were in for a long day. Even the strongest Matt Flynn supporters did their best disappearing act after Flynn struggled so much. He holds onto the ball way too long and stared down his receivers all day. Matt Flynn is not a starting NFL quarterback. The offensive line struggled to block with Flynn at quarterback. They gave up seven sacks...
The playoffs in Major League Baseball will be starting this week and one NFL team is already impacted. According to the Oakland Raiders official team site, the Raiders have moved the kickoff of their game back seven hours in order to accommodate the conversion from a baseball stadium on Saturday while the A’s host a game to a football stadium on Sunday.
From the Raiders official...
Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor had a setback Saturday night with a return of concussion symptoms and that's why he won't play on Sunday, according to Jay Glazer.Fantasy Spin:Matt Flynn will get the start with Matt McGloin as the backup. If all goes well, Pryor should be back for next Sunday's game against the Chargers.
With the news that Vince Wilfork is most likely done for the season with an Achilles injury, it was only a matter of time before someone would contact free agent, and former Patriot standout, Richard Seymour to gauge his interest in a possible return to New England.
Seymour's response? Short, per Ron Borges of the Boston Herald:
When asked if he'd come back...
Reached this morning at his home outside of Atlanta former Patriots and Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour indicated that he was not considering a return to New England in the wake of Vince Wilfork's season-ending Achilles injury.
When asked if he'd come back to the Patriots where he was part of all three Super Bowl championship teams Seymour chuckled responding ...
The Raiders didn’t have their starting quarterback and lost their star running back early in the second half.
And the Redskins still struggled to pull out a victory at O.co Coliseum. But Robert Griffin III and Co. made just enough plays in the second half to escape with a 24-14 victory and breathe life back into their season.
At 1-3 the Redskins still have much work to do. But...
This weekend's game between the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders has been moved to a night game because of the baseball playoffs.
