Oakland Raiders vs. Chicago Bears Preview and Prediction

By Chris Dougherty, 1 year 4 months ago
The Raiders head into Solider Field Sunday trailing the all-time series between the two teams 7-6. The Bears won their last meeting in Oakland 25-20 back in 2011. The setting for this game is much different than their last meeting. The Raiders come into the Week 4 matchup fresh off a dominating road win against the Cleveland Browns, although the 27-20 score wouldn't show that. ...

Week 3 of this young NFL season is coming up, but first let’s take a look to see how my Week 2 bold predictions fared. I just took a look. You don’t want to see my bold Week 2 predictions.

By Michael Horvath, 1 year 5 months ago
Week 1 is in the books and it provided many surprises for fantasy owners as well as unbelievable frustration as well. Who would have guessed that guys like Marcus Mariota, Andy Dalton and Alex Smith would outscore supposed studs like Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson? Who would have thought that Brandon McManus (he’s a kicker), would score 18 fantasy points? That’s...

Pacman Jones Slams Amari Cooper's Head onto Helmet, Stays in Game

By Jasmine Watkins, 1 year 5 months ago
It doesn't have to be playoff football for players to be amped. During the Bengals-Raiders game, things got a little out of hand. Adam "Pacman" Jones let his emotions get the best of him and pushed receiver Amari Cooper's head into his helmet. Jones was given a personal foul, but surprisingly not ejected.    Nothing major, but a fine should be on...

NFL Scouts Talk Anonymously About AFC West Teams

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 6 months ago
The Denver Broncos continue to lead this division, with Peyton Manning leading the way. However, Manning's not getting any younger, and the Chiefs and Chargers both made some personnel upgrades after each just missed out on a wild card spot last season. They are certainly not far behind, and the Raiders finally appear to have some pieces to build around too. The Broncos remain the team to be...

By Matt Josephs, 1 year 7 months ago
It'll be a three-team race in the AFC West with Denver, Kansas City and San Diego all in the mix. It'll be a long season for the Raiders once again, but they are on their way up with a young nucleus. Watch out for Oakland in 2016 and '17 when the other teams in the division will be trying to get younger. Much like I did with the college football win totals, I will break down the...

Oakland Raiders 2015 Team Preview and Prediction

By Athlon Sports, 1 year 8 months ago
It’s been 13 seasons since the Raiders made the playoffs and that long since they finished above .500. Bill Callahan led them to an 11–5 regular-season record in 2002 and to Super Bowl XXXVII, where they were crushed by Tampa Bay and former Oakland coach Jon Gruden. The next year the Raiders went 4–12 and Callahan was fired. Since then, Norv Turner, Art Shell, Lane Kiffin, Tom...
