How the team performed in a 31-24 win against Detroit.
They were out again Friday night, this time at a sports bar along Old Street in Central London, with the Raiders and Bears set to clash on Sunday.
The Raiders easily could challenge to be included among the most memorable clips of the HBO show “Hard Knocks” with a roster that includes Antonio Brown, Richie Incognito and Vontaze Burfict.
The Raiders believe lessons have been learned and would have former wide receiver Darren Waller slotted as their No. 1 tight end should the season begin today.
The assumption that Raiders head coach Jon Gruden would spend the off-season looking to replace quarterback Derek Carr wasn’t as practical a notion as portrayed.
You can’t fault a team that managed 13 sacks all last season after trading away the league’s best edge rusher in Khalil Mack for taking a defensive end, and it’s not like Clelin Ferrell of Clemson fell into 27 career sacks for one of the nation’s top college programs.
Rick Maiani doesn’t envision “Coming Home” being played over the Las Vegas Stadium loudspeakers after the Raiders score a touchdown. But he said the Raiders told his agent they are interested.
As the final seconds of their inaugural season filtered through the hourglass and the clock around Flavor Flav’s neck, it occurred that the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces had lasted longer than the Las Vegas Posse of the Canadian Football League.
If anger among Raiders fans about the relocation to Southern Nevada was a central theme at last year’s training camp, such a sentiment has now seemed to move toward more of an acceptance.
He was the greatest quarterback Las Vegas has produced, so David Humm’s life was celebrated Friday afternoon in a sports arena with pep talks and a tailgate party. Which is how he would have wanted it.
