First day back goes well for Streater

He was winded. But as far as everything else, Raiders receiver Rod Streater said Monday’s return to the practice field went as well as can be expected. “I went through pretty much the whole practice without any pain,” said Streater, who’s missed the last eight games with a broken left foot. “Cutting, running full speed, catching it. I feel I’m very close.” It was more good news for a 1-10 team coming off the 1, a 24-20 win over the Chiefs last Thursday. Streater, the team’s No. 1 receiver a year ago, was placed on the injured reserve list with a designation to return on Oct. 2...

Players focused, dialed in upon return from three-day break

The Raiders returned to practice Monday after spending three days basking in the glow of their first victory in 11 games this season. Coach Tony Sparano was interested to see how his players would respond. “I saw good focus,” Sparano… Continue Reading →

Raiders rejoice in snapping 16-game skid with win over Chiefs

OAKLAND, Calif. — Sio Moore sacked Alex Smith and started to celebrate in the Kansas City backfield with Oakland Raiders teammate Khalil Mack. The elaborate dance could be forgiven if the game had actually been over considering the Raiders hadn’t won a game in more than a year. The only problem was the game was still going and the Chiefs were at the line trying to run a fourth-down play. The Raiders were forced to call a timeout to stop the clock and then got one last stop, snapping a 16-game losing streak with a 24-20 victory over the Chiefs on Thursday night. read more

Jones helps Raiders get out of the “doghouse”

Chiefs cornerback Ron Parker didn’t have a chance, as Raiders receiver James Jones said he wasn’t going to be denied on Thursday night’s game-winning touchdown catch. Quarterback Derek Carr saw the match-up with Jones lined up against the former safety, and changed the play at the 9-yard line. “It was a great check by Derek, he got us into the right play and I was able to get a double move on the safety, he took the bait and I killed him,” Jones said. The game-winning catch with 1:42 left was what Jones had in mind when the San Jose native and former Packer signed with the Raiders...
