Raiders haven't needed much from Janikowski

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) For years Sebastian Janikowski has been the saving grace whenever the Oakland Raiders' offense stalled. The veteran kicker repeatedly bailed the team out with his powerful leg, setting numerous franchise records along the way.

Fun With Oakland Raiders Linebacker Sio Moore

It is a shame that Oakland Raiders fans are going to have to wait till next season to see linebacker Sio Moore play again.

Harbaugh turned down Michigan money in 2011

Whether Jim Harbaugh is actually interested in the Michigan job or not, it would simply be bad business for him to come out and say he will not be the next head coach of the Wolverines.

Latavius Murray is the player with the most to prove on the Raiders

Every player needs to prove themselves in each game. But these last games against Buffalo and Denver will be incredibly important for one player over everyone else – running back Latavius Murray. A sixth-round pick in 2013, Murray had a breakout game against the Chiefs, rushing for 112 yards on 4 carries and 2 TDs. The most important part about that statistic is that the Raiders...

Could Michigan steal Harbaugh from Raiders?

The Oakland Raiders, seen as the logical choice for 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh once he's done in San Fran, could have some stiff competition for his services from the college ranks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, via a source. The Wolverines are willing to fork over $48 million on a six-year deal for Harbaugh, who is reportedly "considering" the offer. Per ESPN's Bill Williamson...

Take your pick: Colin Kaepernick or Derek Carr
