"That's why we made the trade, to have this opportunity," Raiders coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday. "If not, then why do it? It's about winning."
On Oct. 18, two days after starting quarterback...
The fine jar in the defensive meeting room fills up with bills, suggestions pour in from fans and coach Hue Jackson's voice gets hoarse from yelling.
Despite plenty of effort to cure the Oakland Raiders age-old penalty problem, this year's team is on pace to shatter the NFL record for penalties and yards penalized in a season.
