Can any of these 10 guys to watch be future stars for the Oakland Raiders?

That means that this weekend, there won’t be any professional football to watch. For the only time until after the Super Bowl, the NFL won’t dominate the conversation and be on nearly every television. So what’s a fan to do with...

There have already been 3 more missed extra points than the entire 2013 season

Last year there were 1,321 extra point attempts, and out of those thousand plus attempts only 5 total kickers missed their target.  This is basically a free point.  So instead of doing away with the extra point and the kicker all together the NFL tried a new rule.

Janikowski looks to bounce back from rough 2013

Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has done a lot of changing during his 15-year NFL career. He's gone from being the brash, hard-living, party-chasing kid out of Florida State who made headlines for all the wrong reasons to a much calmer father of two who prefers quiet times with his children over the social scene. "It doesn't seem like it's been that long,"...

Oakland Raiders training camp is not quite a week old but already there is plenty to talk about. This is not surprising considering the past couple of years for the team.

The Oakland Raiders have been struggling to find success ever since they were blown out in the Super Bowl by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and former Raiders head coach Jon Gruden.

Oakland Raiders: Janikowski is more valuable than you think

After 14 seasons as the Oakland Raiders’ starting kicker, Sebastian Janikowski is the team’s all-time leading scorer.

What to Expect From The Oakland Raiders Special Teams in 2014

The Oakland Raiders Special teams were a small bright spot on a dull team last season.
