Oakland's Kevin Burnett isn't sure yet what exactly the Raiders will try to do to slow down the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs this week.
It might not matter what the plan is the way the Chiefs have played while winning their first five games.
That's why even as he buried himself in the film room trying to find an edge, Burnett realized the Raiders will likely have to go off script if they're going to give Kansas City its first loss of the season.
Part of the team's offseason defensive makeover, Burnett is sometimes at his best when doing just that.
The ninth-year outside linebacker had 14 tackles in last week's win over San Diego, including a stuff of Chargers running back Danny Woodhead on a fourth-and-goal play from the 1.

The Oakland Raiders (2-3) take on the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in a game that is sure to heighten the already intense rivalry between the two teams.
What are some issues the Raiders will have to face in this week’s matchup? The loss of running back Darren McFadden didn’t stop Oakland from beating the San Diego Chargers, but his return...
When the Raiders used a draft pick to draft Terrelle Pryor as a supplemental draft pock one of his biggest critics was Former Raider WR Tim Brown. Brown had some pretty controversial comments about the OSU product but now is impressed. Brown seems to be eating crow and admitting he was wrong about Pryor. I […]
Oakland Raiders running back tandem Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings seem to be getting healthier as the week progresses and the team is hopeful to have both available for its matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, as reported by csnbayarea.com
Jennings said he is sure he will be ready for Sunday’s contest – the team is not as certain about McFadden.
Terrelle Pryor has put a smile on the Raiders fans faces again. The team beat up on the San Diego Chargers the other night and Pryor has been a surprise. He has looked really good this year. Well when he was asked about his growth, he made sure to say, he did not want to […]
A Raiders fan decided to not board his plane in Manchester, England and instead walked onto the tarmac, threatened to beat up the pilot and then decided to take his clothes off. This is not just another crazy Raiders fan. He was apparently drunk and even got into arguments with other passengers. When the plane landed, he got down to his underwear — black, duh — and trying to...
Good news, NFL: Your efforts to grow the game overseas are working. Just look at how English soccer hooligans have embraced being Raiders fans.
One such fan got so rowdy on a flight to England, it would make The Black Hole proud. The 52-year-old man, sporting a black Raiders T-shirt, reportedly appeared drunk and began berating other passengers. But the real show began when the...
It's a small sample size but the Raiders will take it.
In his past three games Denarius Moore has 15 catches for 274 yards and two touchdowns - the best three-week stretch of his young career - and looks like the No. 1 receiver head coach Dennis Allen and offensive coordinator Greg Olson were imploring him to become during training camp.
Moore in his third year has always flashed...
With Week 6 starting, Terrelle Pryor has officially emerged as a threat at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders. He has improved exponentially each week and is quickly turning into one of the most electric players in the league this season. He has proven week in and week out that he is the quarterback of the future for the Raiders in this season, but just in case there are still...
Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle doesn’t get the feeling that Raiders running back Darren McFadden will play this week.
Talking to Darren McFadden, i didn't get the overwhelming sense that he is going to play Sunday. Has he gone full burst? "Pretty close."

McFadden has been officially listed as questionable on the...
Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is smoking hot right now and doesn’t want to lose any momentum while his team is on their bye week.
Pryor plans on working with quarterback coach Tom House during their bye week so he continue to progress as a passer.
While talking with ESPN, Pryor may have fired a shot at a certain unemployed quarterback without even trying to.
Raiders running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) is on the practice field doing individual drills.Fantasy Spin:Goon news, but expect the Raiders to let him sit another weekend and then benefit from their Week 7 bye. Rashad Jennings should be the guy against rival Kansas City.
On paper this one is not going to be fun for the silver and black. On the field it just might surprise everyone involved. Especially the Jolly Walrus and his crew.This is the epitome of what we call a trap game. One team is on a roll, stomping the guts out of everyone they play. One is a tweener, neither good or bad defines them, but it is clear the effort is there. The team on the...
The Chiefs and the Raiders have a rivalry that burns hot regardless of whether the games themselves have any real meaning. Which is a good thing, because in recent years both the Chiefs and the Raiders have been little more than laughingstocks in the eyes of the rest of the league.Both teams are starting to change that this year. The Chiefs are 5-0 and sport a defense that even the...
Adam Schefter just blessed us with this little nugget of information, and we felt it only right to share.
Unemployed former Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn won the lottery when he got a huge contract from the Seahawks after putting up Tom Brady like numbers in two fill in appearances for Aaron Rodgers.
How lucky is Flynn. The weak armed quarterback pocketed more than $14.5 million...
On Sunday the Oakland Raiders invade Arrowhead Stadium with a six game winning streak on their backs. So can the Kansas City Chiefs knock it off? If they do, these six players need to lead the charge.
