Cowboys miss out, NaVorro Bowman signs with the Raiders

Cowboys miss out, NaVorro Bowman signs with the Raiders

There will be no free-agent addition to the Cowboys at linebacker this week. The Dallas Cowboys have been struggling at linebacker this season. Whether through injury or lack of quality depth, the position has been a sore spot. That’s why the Cowboys had hoped to bring in the recently-released NaVorro Bowman for a visit to see if the veteran would be a good fit. They won’t be able to do that now as Bowman signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders. After being released by the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, the veteran linebacker is signing a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders,...

The Los Angeles Chargers found their new identity in a win over the Oakland Raiders

The Los Angeles Chargers found their new identity in a win over the Oakland Raiders

The Chargers needed to change their formula to start winning games, and now they’re playing to their own strengths more often. The Los Angeles Chargers’ 17-16 win over the Oakland Raiders felt transformational. It was the team’s first road win against an AFC West opponent in three years. The last time they won on the road was in Oakland was in Week 6 of the 2014 season, with Philip Rivers just barely out-dueling rookie QB Derek Carr in a game filled with passing yards and points. The Chargers won that one 31-28 and probably thought that the next time they beat the Raiders it would...

NFL odds: Chiefs are favored over Raiders in Oakland for Thursday Night Football

NFL odds: Chiefs are favored over Raiders in Oakland for Thursday Night Football

The KC Chiefs are favorites once again. The NFL odds for Week 7 are out and the Kansas City Chiefs are listed as 2.5 to 3-point favorites over the Oakland Raiders. Even though the Chiefs are 7-1 in their last eight against the Raiders, I would not have guessed before the season that the Chiefs would be favored in this game. The Raiders don’t look like the team that was supposed to compete for the AFC title this season. They lost Derek Carr a couple weeks ago but he came back to lose to the Chargers last weekend. We knew the Raiders defense wasn’t very good but their offense has been...

Giants vs. Broncos - Live Blog

Let’s go Broncos! Beat those stupid Raiders. The Denver Broncos look to go 4-1 against a struggling New York Giants team, but it’s never easy to win those easy games in the NFL. They need to come out early and jump up on this team as it could cause this team to fold quickly. Don’t give them hope. With the Kansas City Chiefs going down in flames at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers, this game is even more important than ever for the Broncos to take and close to within a half game of the division lead. Add that to the fact the Oakland Raiders choked away a win to the Los Angeles...

Chargers-Raiders Final Score: Los Angeles Chargers Defeat the Oakland Raiders 17-16

Chargers-Raiders Final Score: Los Angeles Chargers Defeat the Oakland Raiders 17-16

First Quarter The Chargers offense looked like it was going to get off to a good start with Melvin Gordon ripping off a 13-yard run on 1st down, but it was not to be. His next run was stopped after a short gain. Then a pair of targets for Keenan Allen gained only one more yard. Drew Kaser came on to punt. Marshawn Lynch’s first carry of the game went for 15 yards. Unfortunately for the Raiders, E.J. Manuel’s first pass went to Trevor Williams who had a nice interception return that was brought back on a penalty. The offense was unable to capitalize. Gordon was stopped for no gain....

The Los Angeles Chargers (1-4) travel to Oakland to take on division rival Oakland Raiders (2-3). Neither team is where they would have hoped to be five weeks in the 2017 NFL season. Both will be looking to get back on track with a win today. Derek Carr will be returning from injury today which has to fill Raiders fans with some degree of optimism. It also has to have Chargers pass rushers Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram extremely motivated to see just how ready the Raiders quarterback really is to be back on the field. On the offensive side of the ball, the Chargers will get their first look...

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch could torture the Los Angeles Chargers defense today

It’s a matchup of strengths and weaknesses in Oakland today when the Chargers take on the Raiders. Good morning! The Los Angeles Chargers travel to Oakland today to take on the future Las Vegas Raiders, who have had trouble getting their offense in gear this year behind a shaky offensive line and a disappointing start to the season for running back Marshawn Lynch. This week on the NFL Network’s Game Theory and Money podcast, hosted by numbers expert Cynthia Frelund and radio play-by-play voice of the Chargers Matt “Money” Smith”, there was a bit of talk about strengths and...

Ravens Review: Vince Mayle’s TD run

Ravens Review: Vince Mayle’s TD run

A look at how the Ravens schemed Vince Mayle’s TD run Welcome back to the Ravens film room. Today we’ll take a look at Vince Mayle’s touchdown on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. The first thing the Raiders’ defender are going to do here are read the offensive line and their run keys. This was a really neat play because it’s not very often that a tight end is going to get a handoff in this situation. Typically if a tight end is in motion it’s to come across the formation and block. When Flacco takes the snap, the Raiders read the running back and fullback as...

Raiders sputtering, injured offense presents the Ravens with a chance to rebound

The Ravens come into this Week 5 contest against the Oakland Raiders in the midst of one of the worst two game stretches the team has had in years. After falling to the Steelers, the Ravens have had to gear up to fly across the country in order to face the Raiders, but it’s a game that presents the Ravens with a great chance to get back on track. The formula for the Ravens two ugly defeats have been an anemic offense leading to the defense being on the field for way too long. The Raiders beat up lineup will give the Ravens a chance to turn that around. It all starts with the defense,...
