Remember that roster spot opened a few hours ago by the departure of offensive lineman Joseph Barksdale? Well, it’s not there anymore. The Oakland Raiders have announced the signing of pro-bowler defensive end Andre Carter, conceivably getting the best player that was still on the market. Carter to the Raiders was not a out-of-nowhere deal. [...]
Sunday’s upset win over the Steelers was something that very few expected to happen. The Oakland Raiders were coming off of two very disappointing efforts to start the season, and what they had shown to that point did not seem to match up to the tough Steelers defense. While it was not the prettiest of [...]

Last Sunday, the Oakland Raiders not only beat the Steelers, but also gave a big boost to their playoffs hopes.

A lot of people may not realize it, but the NFL actually has separate balls for kicking and passing. Quarterbacks do not throw the same footballs that kickers and punters kick and vice versa. Casual fans watching at home have no reason to know the difference, but one might think this information would be important for the officials, right? Not the replacement refs, of course.
The Broncos have not been very good defensively to start out the season. They haven’t really played well in general, but their offense has scored over 25 points per game through the first three weeks.

Last week: 31 (+0)
Still not sold on this team as being anything better than one of the best teams in the league.

Oakland Raiders (1-2) at Denver Broncos (1-2)
I thought the Raiders were overrated coming into the season and now they’re even more overrated coming off a “surprising” win over the Steelers. Their upset win over the Steelers was not completely shocking given how much the Steelers have sucked over the last year plus on the road. They are -43 on the road in that time period,...
