Tampa Bay Buccaneers, during which he sustained his high ankle sprain. Fellow

Darren McFadden is expected to return from a three week absence in the Oakland Raiders’ backfield, and that return may happen as soon as Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns. McFadden has not played in the team’s past few games, although Marcel Reece has stepped up in a major way while filling in for the oft injured RB who is a fantasy headache for many owners once again this...
Well, it ain’t all bad news for the Oakland Raiders. Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson practiced for the first time today since suffering high ankle sprains in the same contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The runningbacks, who were out for the last three weeks, now have a chance to get back to game action, although their presence on the [...]
According to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen has indicated that they’ve “discussed” the possibility of using quarterback Terrelle Pryor is specific situations.
“He’s working to get better and he’s working to improve,” Allen said. “I’ve seen improvement in Terrelle. He’s gotten better as a quarterback. He’s continued to...
Carson Palmer has owned the Cleveland Browns, he has a 9-3 record against the Browns. Palmer will face a much stronger Browns defense this Sunday. Cleveland is coming off a win over the Steelers in which the Browns got 8 turnovers. The Browns defense was hard-hitting and they forced the fumbles. Palmer is going to have to attack the Cleveland secondary of the Raiders are going to...
Another Sunday, another loss for the 2012 Oakland Raiders. After being outscored 24 to nothing at halftime, the Silver&Black attempted a late comeback with 10 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter, but could not keep it going in the fourth. With the defense conceding 169 points in the last four games (42 PPG), the Raiders have now accumulated 4 [...]
The Oakland Raiders are desperately in search of some sort of positive news.
The Raiders (3-8) just finished perhaps the worst month in franchise history by losing all four games in November, capped by three straight losses by at least 21 points
The team's first four-game skid since 2008 assures Oakland of a 10th straight season without a winning record and has turned the focus...
Bengals fans had this game circled on their calendar. For some, this was the game when we could show Palmer what a dumb decision he made by choosing to sit out and eventually join the Raiders over staying in Cincinnati and playing. For others, they wanted to boo the guy for the way he quit. Others just hoped the Bengals could continue their dominance in the last few weeks with...
The Raiders were still smoldering after an official's inadvertent whistle erased what could have been a 25-yard touchdown return of a fumble by Tyvon Branch. Yes, the Raiders acknowledged their role in a 34-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and the fact that sleepwalking through a 24-0 first half was ultimately the reason for their demise. Yet a team struggling as much as...
In light of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick taking the NFL by storm the past week, it seems reasonable that the Raiders might consider taking a look at second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor at some point.
Unquestioned starter Carson Palmer is way down the list of things Raiders coach Dennis Allen has to worry about, even though people are quick to blame Palmer for the teams...
Its been verified by Elias Sports Bureau that the third-place Oakland Raiders are eliminated from the division title even though with a 3-8 record they can mathematically match the Broncos, who are currently 8-3, with five games remaining.
Five straight wins by the Raiders and five straight losses by the Broncos, though, would still give the Broncos the tiebreaker of best record...
This altercation was a bit more physical than we normally see in the NFL, and there were punches thrown.
