A lot of things cost the Oakland Raiders this game against the NY Giants,
as they fell 24-20, in the 12th straight loss flying to the right coast.
I will start off with one thing near and dear to my heart, the lopsided
and complete crap that was officiating. When one team gets called for
anything that may be considered holding, and the other had OBVIOUS holds on
a single run, the outcome could be in favor of the team that had only 1
It seems my nervousness at playing against a Nick Foles led Philadelphia Eagles offense was something I shouldn't have tried to ignore considering the ol' fashioned butt whooping the Oakland raiders received at home, going down 49-20. That score could have been worse. The Eagles let up offensively after their last touchdown, nor pushing for Foles to break the NFL record, which he probably could have done.

Two or more days before the Oakland Raiders beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-18 at the O.co stadium, one former NFL quarterback tweeted something to the effect of how unacceptable it would be for the Steelers, with Mike Tomlin as coach, to lose to the Raiders if their offense was being led by Terrelle Pryor.

That didn't seem to fit in with the spirit of personal reasons. So that didn't jive for Justin, and I can understand that. Standing

Defense has been the strongest facet of the team overall. We are ranked 13th in points allowed, and 12th in yards allowed. Room for improvement? Yes, but again, there are extenuating circumstances. We lost our starting strong safety , Tyvon Branch, for an indefinite period of time. With loss of OLB Miles Burris in the pre-season, this now puts the number of guys that weren't in the colors last season that take the field as a starter this season at 10, the only hold over being DE Lamarr Houston.
