Analysis: Wentz, Elliott provide little bang for buck

Jan. 8, 2021 2:23 AM EST

In a league governed by a salary cap, finding productive players on low-cost rookie deals or bargained-based veterans can be the key to success in the NFL. The teams taking the field for the playoffs this month all have plenty good deals to help along the way whether it’s a star quarterback on a rookie...

Raiders miss playoffs for 3rd season under coach Jon Gruden

Jan. 4, 2021 6:06 PM EST

Jon Gruden’s third season back as coach of the Raiders looked an awful lot like his second with a strong start, disappointing finish and no playoff appearance once again. While the Raiders (8-8) did become more potent on offense and ended up winning one more game in their first season in Las Vegas, there...

Derek Carr rallies Las Vegas Raiders to 32-31 win in Denver

Jan. 3, 2021 10:14 PM EST

DENVER (AP) — This time, Shelby Harris wasn't there to knock down Derek Carr's 2-point conversion pass in the closing seconds. Darren Waller hauled in Carr's 2-point conversion pass with 24 seconds left Sunday and Las Vegas rallied past the Broncos 32-31. Carr's revenge came three days after the Broncos...

TE Darren Waller closes in on Tim Brown's Raiders record

Jan. 1, 2021 4:12 PM EST

Darren Waller has come a long way in just over two years since the Raiders plucked him off Baltimore’s practice squad. After nearly ruining his career because of a drug addiction, Waller has turned into one of the game’s most productive tight ends and is closing in on the franchise record for...

Jason Witten set to break all-time games mark for tight ends

Dec. 31, 2020 2:50 AM EST

When Jason Witten entered the NFL 17 years ago as a third-round pick in Dallas, his famously blunt coach, Bill Parcells, delivered him a simple message. “He taught me early on, reliability, dependability, consistency, that’s how you make it in this game,” Witten said Wednesday. “Those...

Gruden: Guenther fired because Raiders D needed 'new voice'

Dec. 14, 2020 5:37 PM EST

Coach Jon Gruden had seen enough. After watching the Las Vegas Raiders' defense get gashed for more than 200 yards rushing for a second straight game and his team allow at least 30 points for the eighth time in 12 games, Gruden fired defensive coordinator Paul Guenther. Gruden announced the move shortly after the...

Jacobs, Brown, Abram questionable for Raiders vs. Colts

Dec. 11, 2020 4:52 PM EST

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, right tackle Trent Brown and safety Johnathan Abram are questionable for this week’s key showdown with the Indianapolis Colts. Coach Jon Gruden said the three practiced Friday and he will have a better gauge on their status when he sees how they feel Saturday. ...

Waller provides Raiders cheat code against blitz

Dec. 10, 2020 5:41 AM EST

When the New York Jets kept sending blitzes at Derek Carr, the Las Vegas quarterback kept looking Darren Waller's way. For good reason. The athletic tight end has proven to be one of the most difficult matchups in the NFL, with the speed to get loose from bigger linebackers and safeties, and the size to...

Gruden focuses on Raiders execution rather than Jets blunder

Dec. 7, 2020 6:09 PM EST

Coach Jon Gruden will let everyone else debate the decision to send an all-out blitz in the closing seconds that cost the New York Jets a chance at their first win and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams his job. Gruden would rather focus on the things the Las Vegas Raiders got right on that 46-yard touchdown...

Raiders look to get offense going after dud vs. Falcons

Dec. 2, 2020 6:51 PM EST

The run game was throttled, the protection was shoddy and Derek Carr gave the ball away with uncharacteristic frequency. A Las Vegas offense that had been remarkably efficient for most of the season fell flat in a lopsided loss last week at Atlanta and must get back in rhythm quickly if the Raiders hope to make a...
