Wet and Wild for Oakland Raiders


The Oakland Raiders hung on to a victory over the 7 loss in row divisional rivals Denver Broncos, 21-14, in front of a hometown crowd of 53 thousand plus screaming fans at O.co stadium.   The game started off wet, with the rain coming down, not heavy, but steadily.  Much of the usual pre-game warm-ups went by the side, as ...

Oakland Raiders v. Buffalo Bills – Making A Statement


My beloved Oakland Raiders kept their destiny in their own hands by defeating the Buffalo Bills  38-24 at O.co, after knowing that 2 of their divisional rivals won their early games.  Even if the Raiders had lost, they’d still be a game above Denver, but it would have given the Kansas Chiefs an edge, and that just wasn’t isn’t the ...

Oakland Raiders v Carolina Panthers : Carr-diac Kids


After taking a huge lead by half time, I have to admit I had a feeling of trepitdation, and rightfully so, after barely getting by the Carolina Panthers in Oakland in a 35-32 victory.   It was a victory, none the less, and that is what counts, though I think I am going to need to start carrying around nitroglycerin tablets ...

Oakland Raiders v. Houston Texans : Unprepared?


I fully expected my beloved Oakland Raiders to beat the Houston Texans as they faced them in Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico, but  even after reading how we were supposed to destroy them, I was not surprised it came down to a 4th quarter game winning drive by Derek Carr, giving us the 27-20 victory.   I am going to ...

Oakland Raiders vs Denver Broncos : A Matter of Will


After eking out an overtime win in Tampa Bay, I wasn’t sure what to expect when the Oakland Raiders squared off against divisional rivals, the Denver Broncos, in Oakland, in their first home Sunday  Night Football game.  If I had any concerns, they were unfounded, as the Raiders took control of the game from beginning to end, with a 30-20 ...

Oakland Raiders 5-2, Not a Time to Rest on Laurels


I was thrilled to see a more than 1 score victory by my beloved Oakland Raiders as they took care of the Jacksonville Jaguars, 33-16, at EverBank Field in Florida.   It wasn’t an easy game, despite what the score may show.  To begin with, it was warm.  The game started at roughly 70 degrees, and went up to a ...

Oakland Raiders: Tired of Lip Service


I had fully expected to be writing about another skin of the teeth victory for my beloved Oakland Raiders against the Kansas City Chiefs, not shaking my head in dismay at the team’s dismal performance in a 26-10 home  loss.   I wish I were at a loss at where to begin, but sadly I am not.  This is the second ...

Oakland Raiders:  Closer Than It Should Have Been


The Oakland Raiders are sitting in first place in the AFC West courtesy of the Atlanta Falcons taking down a formidable Denver Broncos team, and more importantly, taking care of business by beating the San Diego Chargers, 34-31, in their first home game win of the season.   Last game, I was very disappointed with the offense, more directly the fact that ...

Oakland Raiders: 3-1, But Needs Improvement


The Oakland Raiders pulled out their 3rd win of the season, 28-27, taking down one the last of the unbeaten teams, the Baltimore Ravens, in the 2nd of back-to-back road games. I am happy for the win. It’s a good start for us, especially considering that between the win in Tennessee and the win in Baltimore, the Raiders traveled roughly ... Read More »
