On Tuesday afternoon, the Minnesota Vikings announced that they will not exercise the option on running back Adrian Peterson’s contract. Now the 10-year veteran, seven-time Pro Bowler, four-time first-team All-Pro, three-time league rushing champion and 2012 NFL MVP is set to become an unrestricted free agent on March 9, the first day of the new league year.   Minnesota wasn’t...

25 Greatest Tight Ends in NFL History

By J.P. Scott, 4 months 6 days ago
It could be argued that no position has changed more in the NFL’s history than the tight end. Once primarily a sixth offensive lineman who would catch the occasional pass, tight ends have become key cogs on offense.   Some tight ends are so critical to a team’s passing attack in the current NFL that entire packages are designed to fit their individual skill sets. The extra...

AFC Wild Card Preview and Predictions: Oakland Raiders vs. Houston Texans

By Antwan Staley, 5 months 3 weeks ago
For the second straight season, the Houston Texans will host a wild card game. The hope is that this year’s matchup goes a lot better than last year’s 30-0 loss to Kansas City.   The Texans’ (9-7) opponent this time will be another AFC West team, the Oakland Raiders. Entering the last week of the regular season, the Raiders (12-4) had an opportunity to clinch the...

Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 5 months 4 weeks ago
Last week’s 33-25 win against Indianapolis was bittersweet for Oakland. Yes, the team won its 12th game of the season to remain on top of the AFC West, but it came at a high cost.   Raiders starting quarterback Derek Carr broke his fibula in the fourth quarter and is unlikely to play again this season. Now backup Matt McGloin will look to guide the Raiders to their first division...

Fresh off of clinching its first playoff berth since 2002, Oakland returns home to face Indianapolis, a team that is still in the postseason conversation. The Raiders (11-3) now have their sights set on an AFC West title, while the Colts (7-7) must win (and get plenty of help) to maintain any hope of winning the South.   Last week, Oakland’s defense had one of its best performances...

Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 6 months 1 week ago
After 55 seasons in San Diego, this afternoon could be the last time the Oakland Raiders visit the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium. Last month, the team’s new stadium ballot measure failed in San Diego County, as only 57 percent of the votes cast were in favor. Under California law, the measure needed two-thirds of voters to approve it, so the Chargers could be playing in Los...

On Thursday night, they will play in one of the most important games in the recent history of the series.   On a short week, the Raiders will travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Chiefs.

Buffalo Bills vs. Oakland Raiders Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 6 months 3 weeks ago
This Week 13 game between the Buffalo Bills and the Oakland Raiders could have playoff implications for both teams before all is said and done, which is significant considering the two teams have the longest active postseason droughts (17 years for Buffalo, 14 for Oakland) in the NFL.   Currently, the Bills (6-5) sit in eighth place in the AFC but just a game behind divisional rival Miami...

Carolina Panthers vs. Oakland Raiders Preview and Prediction

By Antwan Staley, 7 months 1 day ago
While the Oakland Raiders are having their best season since 2002, the Carolina Panthers are suffering from a bit of a Super Bowl hangover.   Carolina (4-6) did defeat New Orleans last week 23-20, but it didn’t come without a cost. The Panthers’ best player, linebacker Luke Kuechly, a three-time All-Pro and the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, was carted off of the field...
