Raiders-Chiefs odds: The Arrowhead advantage has KC as the favorite

A quick look ahead to the Oakland Raiders on Thursday ... The early odds on the biggest game of the season have the Chiefs as favorites over the Raiders.

Raiders 38, Bills 24: 29. Unanswered. Points.

Raiders 38, Bills 24: 29. Unanswered. Points.

The Bills completely collapsed in the second half. Every season, going back sixteen years now, the Buffalo Bills have encountered the “backbreaker.” This is the turning point of the season, where we knew that Buffalo’s playoff hopes had essentially come to an end, and the team was going to be playing out the string for the rest of the year. Last season, it was a 22-30 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs that essentially torpedoed Buffalo’s chances to challenge for a wild card spot. Two years ago, it was a loss to the Oakland Raiders that appeared to do them in (although circumstances...

Second half open thread: Bills lead Raiders 10-9

Second half open thread: Bills lead Raiders 10-9

The Bills will receive the ball to start the second half. The 6-5 Buffalo Bills have hung in with the 9-2 Oakland Raiders, through the first half of their game at the Coliseum in Oakland. A Sebastian Janikowski field goal wrapped up the first thirty minutes by setting the score at 9 for the Raiders, against Buffalo’s 10. The Bills showed some vulnerabilities on defense in the first half, giving up a few big running plays and leaving holes in the zone versus Oakland’s explosive offense, but some penalty luck and effective short yardage play helped the team to hold Oakland in...

Buffalo Bills vs. Oakland Raiders: TV map bigger this week

The Buffalo Bills will be on in some major cities this week.

Raiders week 12 Ballers & Busters vs Panthers

Last Sunday the Raiders kept it rolling, winning their fifth straight game to improve to 9-2. But they just couldn’t stand to make it easy. They had to give their fans heart palpitations. What began as a lopsided game with the Raiders jumping out to a 24-7 lead at the half, turned into a hard fought come-from-behind narrow victory. The comeback was spurred by Derek Carr dislocating his finger. The Panthers reeled off 25 unanswered points to take a 32-14 lead early in the fourth quarter. Carr got back on track to pick the offense back up while the defense also shook off their woes to pull...

Panthers at Raiders Final Score: Panthers fall 35-32 despite rally

The Carolina Panthers lost a close one to the Oakland Raiders, falling to 4-7. Well, that was a tough one to watch. The Panthers quickly fell to many of their current shortcomings, as the offense struggled to move the ball at all in the first half while the defense allowed yards in chunks. The Raiders scored 17 points and probably could have scored more, while the Panthers managed a touchdown drive after they were gifted opportunities to keep the drive going, as Cam took one in on his own. The Panthers ended the half by giving away a touchdown to Khalil Mack off a pick six on a designed...
