Week 8 NFL Against The Spread: Raiders Chase ‘Perfection’

At least any talk about an undefeated season in the NFL ended early this year, as no team made it as far as 4-0.

But the Oakland Raiders still have a shot at going 0-16. I don’t see the excitement in it since the Detroit Lions pulled off the feat just six years ago.

Red McCombs wants to help Oakland Raiders move to San Antonio

Former Minnesota Vikings owner B.J. “Red” McCombs opened eyes and dropped some jaws on Thursday when he told the San Antonio Express-News details of Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis’ meetings in San Antonio.

Oakland Raiders: Dennis Allen already on the hot seat?

The Oakland Raiders have stumbled to a 4-10 record this season after a disappointing 4-12 record in 2012. After just two years in charge of the Silver and Black, could head coach Dennis Allen already be on his way out by the Bay? That’s the way it looks right now.

Todd Christensen once said the grossest thing ever

Sadly, football lost one of its great characters Wednesday when Todd Christensen passed away from complications of liver disease at 57 years old.

Matt Flynn released: Following his money trail

The Green Bay Packers rang in 2012 with one of the best statistical performances by anyone that has ever worn green and gold, yet it came from a player that made just two career starts for the franchise.

2013 NFL Predictions: AFC West Preview

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos enter the 2013 NFL season as the AFC West favorites.

At the same time, this is pro football’s weakest division. Therefore, the Broncos will be expected to dominate game after game against their AFC West rivals. Because of those expectations, it’s reasonable to anticipate the rest of the division bringing their A-game when facing Manning and co.

Oakland Raiders re-open quarterback competition

For the second straight preseason it looks like Matt Flynn can’t lock down a quarterback job that was completely gift-wrapped for him. Last year the Seattle Seahawks did all they could to let Flynn win their starting gig, but he lost out to rookie Russell Wilson. This year the Oakland Raiders dubbed him the starter, but he has been outplayed by backup Terrelle Pryor so far.

The Raiders have lost their last five games, including a rough loss to the Browns last Sunday.
