Benson Mayowa relishing opportunity with Raiders, set to face former team

This Sunday, the Raiders will face the Seahawks for the second time this year. The last meeting was just two months ago when they played their annual preseason game against the Seahawks. The fourth preseason game is when each team gets one last long look at their young players and hopefuls who are trying to earn a roster spot. One such player was Benson Mayowa. At that time, he was wearing a Seahawks uniform. And it was the team across the ball that was most impressed. So, when the Seahawks made their final roster cuts and Mayowa's name was among those cuts, the Raiders didn't hesitate to...

Lets see where the Denver Broncos rank in the power rankings after two impressive victories in a four day span. Our weekly look around the web for how the Broncos rank in NFL Power Rankings. ESPN: 1 (Last week: 1) This should be fun. Peyton's Broncos, fresh off a 35-point performance against the Chargers, head to Foxborough, where Brady's Pats just dropped 51 points on the Bears.

Don't Press the Panic Button Yet on the San Diego Chargers

Though the Chargers may seem to be faltering, there are reasons to stay optimistic for the upcoming bye and the rest of the season. So sit back, take that chill pill of yours, and enjoy some much-needed optimism. Before I begin with the optimism, I'd just like to send a small note to the NFL scheduling committee. The next time you'd like to screw the Chargers this hard with the scheduling, at least have the courtesy to buy the team dinner first. Having three divisional games in a row, especially when two of those teams are coming off byes, is beyond ridiculous. Then you end the three-game...

Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles on Chiefs injury report for Jets week

The Kansas City Chiefs list 14 players on their Wednesday injury report. The Kansas City Chiefs have a boatload of new injuries in the past week, according to their Wednesday injury report. Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles are the two names that jump out at you. Smith is dealing with the shoulder injury Andy Reid talked about earlier this week but he did practice in full so it sounds like he should be ready to roll. Meanwhile, Charles was added to the injury report with a back injury, which is a new one. He practiced in full so, again, that's a good sign. Donnie Avery has already been ruled...

Raiders sign safety Larry Asante

Raiders sign safety Larry Asante

The Raiders today finally made a move to add depth to the safety position, announcing they have signed free agent safety Larry Asante. The three-year NFL veteran re-joins the Raiders after having spent time with the team in training camp. Asante was a former round five pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2010. He has played for the Buccaneers (2010-11) and Colts (2013), appearing in 17 games with no starts. The Raiders have been thin at the safety position for the past couple weeks. They lost Tyvon Branch for the season with a foot injury and then lost Usama Young for the season to a torn...

Broncos vs. Patriots: Turnovers paramount to outcome

Broncos vs. Patriots: Turnovers paramount to outcome

The Broncos are focusing on ball security this week, which is a good thing considering how important the turnover differential has been for New England. I counted at least 10 blue and green covered balls today. Wow! Every offensive guy you can think of carrying a special ball. Clear message — Darren McKee (@dmac1043) October 29, 2014 Most of New England's success this season is tied to their ability to create turnovers. Consider this. In two losses (Kansas City and Miami), the Patriots are -5 in turnover differential. In six wins (Buffalo, Minnesota, Oakland, Jets, Chicago,...

Ronnie Hillman injury: Broncos running back suffers shoulder injury in practice Wednesday

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman has excelled in replacing Montee Ball but now is facing an injury of his own. Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman has been making fantasy football owners very happy over the past several weeks. Even the newly-retired Champ Bailey has endorsed Hillman as his fantasy running back of choice. Perhaps Bailey's endorsement was actually the kiss of death, because an injury to Hillman was the surprise news of the day in Dove Valley Wednesday. Hillman was limited in practice after he "landed funny" on his shoulder, Broncos coach John Fox said after...

Which Injured Chargers player does San Diego need back the most?

Of all of the injuries the San Diego Chargers are currently facing, which player would help the team the most if he returned before the next game? Before we get into this I want a full disclaimer that this is not an excuse post. The Chargers have lost three games because of critical mistakes or simply being outplayed. Unfortunately, two of the most important players on the roster are out for the year. As we get closer to the bye week we're hearing that more and more players are "close" to returning. These aren't exactly special team players we're talking about here. San Diego expects to get...

Derek Carr, Khalil Mack headline NFL.com Midseason All-Rookie Team

Despite a miserable start to the season as a team, the Raiders' top two draft picks from last spring were honored as the best rookie at their position at the midway point. As the only win-less team in the NFL eight weeks into the season, there typically isn't a whole lot of good news floating around. On Wednesday, however, Raider Nation did get a dose of positivity when rookies Derek Carr and Khalil Mack were named to NFL.com's midseason all-rookie team. Even better, Carr and Mack were deemed good enough to be headliners in the article entitled, "Watkins, Carr, Mack top 'Midseason...

Reid called it a sprained shoulder but was optimistic that Smith would be fine. The fact that he is practicing on Wednesday is...
