Even though they’re currently leading the AFC West division with a 6-4 mark, the Raiders still don’t get any respect.
The butt of many a joke over the years, Oakland seems to have finally turned the corner, and yet one of their own of years past — Warren Sapp — continues to trash them on a weekly basis.
Sapp, a staple of the NFL Network and Showtime’s Inside the NFL, criticizes...
As I sat with my newly acquired Oakland Raiders friends at my favorite local sports bar this past Sunday, I realized the Raiders will not let me pack up and head home early this year. Fans of most NFL teams witness games in which they realize their team will likely win, and can go home, eat lunch or dinner, and spend some time doing other valuable things. Raiders fans, however, must...
Early this season, the Raiders were not able to field their entire group of wide receivers. And now they are banged up once again and could be down three of their top receiving targets come Sunday.
The latest to go down to injury are Darrius Heyward-Bey and Denarius Moore. They were both injured in last Sunday's win in Minnesota. DHB was hit in the head by linebacker EJ Henderson...
The Raiders went into Minnesota and came out with a firm hold on their AFC West lead. But it didn't come easy. What started out looking like a blowout in the making, finished as a sloppy, penalty laden affair. But in the end the Raiders were able to hold on with a 27-21 win over the Vikings.

Penalties are nothing new to the Oakland Raiders franchise but first year head coach Hue Jackson has had enough. The Raiders were flagged 117 yards last week against the Minnesota Vikings and most of the calls were absurd and questionable.
Tommy Kelly was the victim of one of these erroneous calls on a beautiful play in which he anticipated a move by Viking quarterback Cristian...
Raiders head coach Hue Jackson likes to say it’s “next man up” whenever a player goes down to injury.
But what if the next man is injured, too?
As Oakland (6-4) gets ready to play the Chicago Bears (7-3) Sunday at O.co Coliseum, the Raiders’ receiving corps, in particular, has become a tiny group.
On Wednesday, it consisted of Louis Murphy, Chaz Schillens and practice-squad...
Carson Palmer is not a mobile quarterback, so the interior of the Bears defensive line needs to make him uncomfortable in the pocket.
A look at four keys for the Bears to beat the Oakland Raiders.
1. Stop the run
The Raiders have become a more rounded team since acquiring quarterback Carson Palmer mid-season, but their offense still goes as its running game does. Oakland has the...
Caleb Hanie will make his first NFL start for surging Chicago on Sunday when
they visit Carson Palmer and AFC West-leading Oakland.
Waiver Wire QB’s Matt Leinart (Second Listing) – Andre Johnson is back to practicing fully and there isn’t a QB out there for a back up spot on your roster with more upside. Remember those games with Arian Foster having 100 yards receiving? Well Andre is back now and that along with QB roll outs to Arian sets up a nice upside.
