Raiders haven't needed much from Janikowski

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) For years Sebastian Janikowski has been the saving grace whenever the Oakland Raiders' offense stalled. The veteran kicker repeatedly bailed the team out with his powerful leg, setting numerous franchise records along the way. He's about to establish another team record - though it's clearly one he'd rather do without. With two games left before the Raiders...

The two wins for the Oakland Raiders this season have been big ones. Rather than coming against lackluster teams who are struggling themselves, the Raiders have taken down to playoff contenders in the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Is the old Seabass back? Sebastian Janikowski quietly having a solid year

The Oakland Raiders have not used kicker Sebastian Janikowski much at all this season. We are well past the mid way point of the year but Janikowski only has half of the number of attempts as he did in 2013. This is in large part due to the fact that the Raiders have the best touchdown percentage in the redzone of any team in the league. Part of it is that there have been large stretches...

Raiders coaches refuse to make adjustments in the run game

One of the biggest disappointments for the Oakland Raiders this season has been their run game. After an offseason spent adding massive linemen who were supposed to run blocking machines, this is not what fans expected. The run game has looked absolutely non existent as the Raiders are currently last in yards and tied for last in touchdowns. Part of the problem is that the offensive...
