Oakland Raiders 2016 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 month 2 weeks ago
Coach Jack Del Rio took over a Raiders team last year that was coming off a 3–13 season and more than doubled that win total, finishing 7–9. The Raiders haven’t made the playoffs or finished above .500 since 2002 when they reached Super Bowl XXXVII and lost to Tampa Bay. But expectations are soaring in Oakland this year, and a return to the postseason and double-digit wins...

NFL Teams to Watch in 2016

By Antwan Staley, 6 months 1 week ago
Every season in the NFL, there are a few teams that didn't make the playoffs the prior season that make a surprise run to the postseason. Last season, the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings crashed the playoff party after not qualifying in 2014. The 2016 offseason will be full of questions, starting with the Super Bowl champion Denver...

25 Greatest Tight Ends in NFL History

By J.P. Scott, 6 months 2 weeks ago
There was a time when the tight end position in the NFL served as a sixth lineman who could also run a route to catch the occasional pass. My how the times have changed. Today, tight ends are key cogs of high-powered offenses – often with entire packages designed to fit their individual skill sets. The extra emphasis placed on the position today causes us to look back at some of the...

Jerry Rice Talks Super Bowl, Food and Fashion

By Athlon Sports, 6 months 3 weeks ago
There’s a reason Jerry Rice, 53, is nicknamed the “G.O.A.T.” (Greatest of All-Time). Not only does he own nearly every receiving record, but he is also arguably the greatest player in Super Bowl history. In four career Super Bowl appearances, Rice posted 33 catches for 589 yards (17.9 ypc) and eight TDs — with three rings (all with the 49ers), one loss (with the Raiders)...

By J.P. Scott, 7 months 2 weeks ago
I first broke into the sports blogging/writing world covering the Oakland Raiders and the AFC West for a now defunct Raiders fan blog. I was never a fan, but I learned a couple of things about the Raiders' devoted followers rather quickly: there are a lot of them and they are everywhere. For that reason, the rumors floating around about owner Mark Davis pursuing a potential move to San...

Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 7 months 3 weeks ago
The Kansas City Chiefs' 2015 season has been a tale of two different stretches. After a 1-5 start, the Chiefs appeared to be a shoe-in for a top-five pick in the 2016 NFL Draft but things have changed drastically since then. Since Oct. 25, Kansas City has been the league’s hottest team thanks to a nine-game winning streak. A 10th straight victory on Sunday and a Denver...

Christmas Eve will feature a matchup of division rivals that could be both on the move to Los Angeles next season. The San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders will meet for 113th time to kick off Week 16 on “Thursday Night Football.” Oakland (6-8) will enter the game with a chance to sweep the Chargers for the first time since the 2010 season.

Green Bay Packers vs. Oakland Raiders Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 8 months 1 week ago
Looking at the schedule at the beginning of the 2015 season, many would have said the Green Bay Packers’ game against the Oakland Raiders would be a laugher or maybe a cakewalk. Instead, this game has a much different feeling to it in December than it did at the beginning of September. While the Packers (9-4) are a contender like many expected, the Raiders (6-7) have been a bit of a...
