Construction of an NFL stadium in the Los Angeles area could come with another change: a possible shift in division for the Oakland Raiders or the San Diego Chargers.
The Oakland Raiders have long seen futility in many aspects of the NFL, but they’ve quietly and slowly built a good team to change that. The draft selection of wide receiver Amari Cooper looks to not only add production, but excitement to an offense that has long been lacking.
The Dallas Cowboys have signed former Raiders running back Darren McFadden to a two-year deal, according to multiple reports.
After Tuesday’s late-night post-Mavs-game private meeting between DeMarco Murray and Jason Garrett, the possibility of the NFL’s leading rusher returning to the Cowboys seems as likely as ever.
The Green Bay Packers do not have many holes in their game as they enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. However, one is their blocking in the kicking game. They allowed more combined blocked field goals, extra point attempts and punts than they had in the previous five seasons combined.
The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
The 2014 Oakland Raiders started out 0-10, but they split their last six games to finish 3-13. This was one game worse than the 2013 squad, which finished 4-12. The Silver & Black haven’t had a winning season since 2002, and they haven’t been to the playoffs since losing the Super Bowl that year. What’s next?
New England’s offensive coordinator says he’s happy where he is, but at least one NFL team is seriously interested in interviewing him.
The Oakland Raiders upset the Kansas City Chiefs last night 24-20 for their first win of the season. With the loss, the Chiefs (7-4) are no longer tied atop the AFC West with the Broncos.
Head coach Andy Reid won’t let his team let up against the Raiders and blow an opportunity for a victory, and quarterback Alex Smith is too smart to take any opponent lightly.
With Kansas City’s impressive win against the Seahawks on Sunday and Denver’s shocking loss to the Rams, the Chiefs (7-3) are tied for first in the AFC West. After an 0-2 start, they’ll look for their sixth straight win and eighth in their last nine games.
These NFL teams are playing for the right to dream about one player who, once drafted, will deliver them to the Promised Land next season.
