Oakland Raiders Pre-Season Week 3 – Players Who Stood Out

David Wilson – Aug 23, 2014

The Raiders haven’t had a great pre-season so far with the way their starters have played as a unit, but that is exactly what the pre-season is for, to iron out the kinks. It is also a very vanilla offense and defense and defense, and overall results probably not far less concerning than many believe.

Oakland Raiders – Starters Whose Jobs Are Under Threat

David Wilson – Aug 21, 2014

Despite the critics in the general media, I see little doubt that the 2014 Oakland Raiders Team is far better than last year’s version, and will perform better than the odds makers predict.

Preseason Oakland Raiders Player Power Rankings

Elias Trejo – Aug 27, 2014

We'll be ranking the Raiders best 25 players by their performance in the season. Each week we'll update the rankings to reflect a players value to the team and where he ranks compared to other players on the team.

What to Expect in the Raiders First Preseason Game vs the Vikings

Elias Trejo – Aug 8, 2014

The Oakland Raiders play in their first preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings.
