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...

Raiders can finally smile, get their first win of season

The sun came out for the Raiders on Thursday night, on a cold and rainy night. Oakland has been playing hard for interim coach Tony Sparano – which is something at 0-10 — and was rewarded with its first win, 24-20, of the season, snapping a 16-game losing streak dating back to last year. But it wasn’t going to be easy. Obviously. The Raiders blew a 17-3 lead midway through the third quarter, and fell behind 20-17 before Marcel Reece, Derek Carr and James Jones saved the first good day this season. Reece, the underused fullback who has six carries on the season coming into the game, ran...
