The Oakland Raiders defense has been looking a little rough as of late, but defensive coordinator Ken Norton says all the pieces are there for them to be a respectable unit – it’s all about… ahem… execution. “There are a lot of plays that we have great communication on,” Norton said. “People just want to bring out the ones you had bad communication on.

The struggles to drag a second foot inbounds that cost him a couple of touchdowns were quickly fixed.

It appears that there’s some pushback from the NFL and its power players regarding a potential move of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas. With the state of Nevada signed into law $750 million in public financing to help build a stadium for the Raiders in the desert metropolis, most figured the Raiders would be on their way out of Northern California. Apparently, that’s not the...
The Oakland Raiders and the state of Nevada have pretty much crossed all the T’s and dotted all the I’s regarding a potential move of the Northern California NFL franchise to Las Vegas. Relocation itself has passed through all the local and state-wide obstacles in Nevada, culminating in governor Brian Sandoval signing the stadium funding bill into law with Raiders owner Mark...
Though the NFL has yet to approve a potential Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas, Monday’s latest news shows that the Raiders will have a stadium waiting for them whenever they are ready and able to move to the Sin City.

The Oakland Raiders got another reminder on Sunday of why Mark Davis is trying so hard to move them to Las Vegas.

Now that the Nevada Legislature approved a plan to use $750 million in public money for the construction of a stadium for the Raiders, there are a few outstanding questions.

The Raiders are getting to be somewhat predictable. Every week, just tune into the silver and black as the fourth quarter begins and wait for the magic to happen. This past week's 34-31 nail-biter over San Diego was no exception and marks the fifth straight one-possesion game that Oakland has played to start the season. Jack Del Rio's club is standing tall at 4-1 for the...

The state of Nevada got one step closer to being the next home of the NFL’s Raiders on Tuesday. The state senate amended and passed a bill that would raise taxes on hotel rooms in Clark County.
