Falcons Gameday Thread

A little late here, it's now halftime, and haven't I seen this before? A Raiders team that starts the season strong, plays some inspired football as a playoff hopeful, then inexplicably plays down to the competition (including dumb penalties) and puts those playoff hopes in jeopardy? They have 30 minutes to turn this around, or it's going to be a very disappointing outcome that clouds our playoff prospects. Come on, GO RAIDERS!

Chiefs Gamenight Thread

 Do you believe in miracles? Can lightning strike twice?

We will find out tonight! This is a golden opportunity for the Raiders to make their biggest statement in ages. 

There are a lot of AFC teams with similar or better records, so despite being 6-3 entering this game, the path to the playoffs won't be a cakewalk. To be 7-3 after tonight would be huge.

Have to find that defensive aggression off the line that rattled Mahomes last time. Gotta play smart and physical. Mistakes to a minimum. If that happens, we've got a chance. 


P.S. Sorry about the missing game thread last week.

Chargers Gameday Thread

Okay, here we go. The Raiders can remain on the move today, stay on the upswing and make another stride toward playoff contention. Offense is clicking these days, defense needs to keep it together against Herbert. GO RAIDERS!

Browns Gameday Thread

The Raiders came back down to earth last week, and the defense reverted to form with a resounding thud. Now they're in windy Cleveland, with one Raiders field goal try already thwarted. The Raiders should win this if they are a team on the rise. They gotta pull it together, and now's a chance to avoid a losing record at the halfway mark of the season. GO RAIDERS!
