The Raiders have a new wide receiver joining the team this week as well: Devon Wylie. They waived Austin Willis to make room on the roster.

He had his shining moments, but it was not enough to prevail. Darren McFadden had 13 carries, but only rushed for 20 yards. Up next for them is a game with the Denver Broncos.

2/12/14 – The 2014 Oakland Raiders schedule is the toughest in the league based on opponents performance last year. All three of the Raiders AFC West foes made the NFL Playoffs last season, which makes for an automatic threatening lineup.

12/16/13- The Oakland Raiders fell to Kansas City, 56-31, and officially granted the Chiefs a playoff berth. Thanks to seven turnovers (five by QB Matt McGloin) and a sieve-like defense that allowed Jamaal Charles to run 4 TDs down the field, the high-score KC finished with the most points a team has ever put up against the Raiders in history, leaving head coach Dennis Allen on the hot seat. Oakland is pitted against the resurgent San Diego Chargers this Sunday, with chances of dashing their postseason hopes once and for all. Oakland Raiders tickets are $154 on average and $71 to get into the California showdown.
12/10/13 - The banged up Oakland Raiders team were beat down by a fresh New York Jets squad, 27-37, in what the team considers their worst loss yet. Oakland entered the week outscoring opponents by 45 in the first quarter (largest margin in league), but on Sunday they fell behind 10 points early and never recovered. With every score the Raiders put up, the Jets answered, while special teams missed two big plays and the defense granted faulty Geno Smith a banner day. In Week 15 they’ll be back home where they can put forth their best effort against the formidable Kansas City Chiefs. Oakland Raiders tickets are moderately priced at $96 on average, but boast the highest get-in price at $42.
12/2/13 - The Oakland Raiders were unable to hold onto their first half lead, and fell to the Dallas Cowboys in Texas on Turkey Day, 24-31.

11/26/13 - The Oakland Raiders lost to the Tennessee Titans in frustrating fashion on Sunday, unable to stop Ryan Fitzpatrick’s game-winning touchdown with 10 seconds left on the clock, resulting in a 23-19 finish.

In a couple days the Black & Silver will go head to head against the Dallas Cowboys for a Turkey Day face off! Oakland Raiders tickets on Thanksgiving Day are the hottest of the holiday, at $231 on average—it might have something to do with an exciting Selena Gomez performance at half time!
11/19/13 - The Oakland Raiders not only beat the Houston Texans, 28-23, but showcased a stunning performance by 3rd string QB Matt McGloin, who provided a much-needed dose of adrenaline for the Raiders. Heading into Sunday with back-to-back losses and an injured Terrelle Pryor, the Raiders took a gamble and started undrafted rookie-free agent McGloin on the road against a desperate Houston squad. The result was better than what anyone could’ve asked for: McGloin became the first of his kind to make three touchdown passes and no interceptions in his first start, and sent the Texans spiraling further downward with their 8th straight loss. The Raiders will host the Tennessee Titans next week, with hopes that the rookie can propel them into the playoff race. Oakland Raiders tickets are among the cheapest of the week—get in for $40 or $94 on average.
11/12/13 - The Oakland Raiders suffered a disheartening loss, falling to the New York Giants 24-20 at MetLife on Sunday. In an ugly game, the Black and Silver were unable to maximize on numerous turnovers generated by Eli Manning, as Terrelle Pryor himself had a lackluster performance, including a very costly pick in the third quarter. Unable to scramble and make dynamic plays on Sunday due to a sprained MCL, the team hopes their QB will be up and ready to play the Houston Texans on the road. Oakland Raiders tickets are a moderately priced $120 on average, and $17 to get in.
11/5/13 - The Oakland Raiders were ungraciously trounced by the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday afternoon, losing 49-20. The Raiders were run amuck at home, despite being favored to win, and the defense allowed backup QB Nick Foles to tie the NFL record for most touchdown passes in a game, with 7. On the other hand, Terrelle Pryor went 22 of 41 for 288 yards and two interceptions before leaving in the fourth quarter from a knee injury. The Raiders will be on the road with hopes of shrugging off the blowout loss, to play the New York Giants this Sunday. Oakland Raiders tickets are surprisingly the second most expensive game of the week, at $324 on average.
10/29/13 - The Oakland Raiders came away victorious after Sunday’s close match against the Pittsburgh Steelers, 21-18. The Raiders started the day off magnificently, as Terrelle Pryor scored the longest rushing touchdown by a QB in NFL history, rushing 93 yards on the first play from scrimmage. The Raiders elite defense has allowed no more than 17.3 points on average from the opposition, and stuffed Roethlisberger’s 15-point fourth quarter rally. The Raiders will try to build on this momentum when they host the fading Philadelphia Eagles in Week 9. Oakland Raiders tickets have one of the highest get-in prices ($67) but average at $130 a seat.
10/22/13 - The Oakland Raiders are currently enjoying their bye week, after a crushing defeat by the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, before coming back to face the Pittsburgh Steelers, a no longer winless team that has come up 2-4 on the season. The veteran Ben Roethlisberger and the young Terelle Pryor will both be putting up great fights and two completely different game management styles at O.co Coliseum on October 27, as Pryor has been working on releasing the ball earlier to avoid further penalty during the bye. The Raider’s offensive line has been given ample enough time to heal, and fans will be relieved to see the return of Wisniewski (center), Gurode (center/left guard), Pashos (tackle) and Watson (tackle) to the lineup. Oakland has lost their last ten games coming out of a bye week, a statistic they will try to squash, considering the Steelers haven't won in Oakland since 1995. Raiders tickets are averaging $174 a seat, as the Black and Silver try and outdo the Black and Yellow in Week 8.
10/16/13 - The Oakland Raiders were unable to put an end to AFC West rivals the Kansas City Chief’s perfect season, losing 7-24 and dropping to 2-4 on the season. It was a battering day for Terelle Pryor, who was sacked ten times because he had trouble getting rid of the ball in a timely fashion, and consequently received crushing blows from the monstrous Chiefs defense. Despite a valiant effort amid a deafening crowd, the Raiders were unable to maximize on their first half points. Distracted and unorganized by the hostile territory, Oakland racked up 11 penalties for 68 yards lost, Pryor threw three interceptions, which the Chiefs returned for 17 points and star running back Darren McFadden was held to just 52-yards rushing. The Oakland Raiders will enjoy their bye week and recoup after a rough game, to come back in Week 8 pitted against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
10/8/13 - The Oakland Raiders shocked the San Diego Chargers in a 27-17 rout during Sunday’s late night game in Northern California, the latest televised West Coast game in NFL history. After releasing backup QB Matt Flynn, the team welcomed back potential franchise quarterback Terrell Pryor, who withstood a concussion two weeks prior. Despite missing their top two running backs, the Raiders offense was solid, following wide receiver Rod Streater’s early 44-yard touchdown off the first play. The Raiders defense performed brilliantly, with four forced turnovers, a blocked field goal and ultimately limited the Chargers to just 32 rushing yards. The Raiders will face other division opponents, the Kansas City Chiefs, on the road with a history of 6 consecutive wins at Arrowhead Stadium. Oakland Raiders tickets on the road average at $173 in Week 6.
10/1/13 - The Oakland Raiders granted the Washington Redskins their first win of the season, in a 14-24 defeat at O.co Coliseum. Despite racking up an early 14 point lead, the Raiders, missing QB Terrell Pryor from last week’s concussion, and running backs Darren McFadden and Marcel Reece, quickly faltered and were unable to put up any more points the rest of the day. Backup quarterback Matt Flynn suffered Washington’s defense with 7 sacks and lost a fumble to Roy Helu Jr. who scored a touchdown to grant the Redskins the lead in the second half. In Week 5 Oakland will host San Diego, who often get the best of their North California rivals, winning 9 games in 11 against the Raiders. Oakland Raiders tickets, for their now primetime Sunday Night game against Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers, start at $24 and average at $94.
9/24/13 - The Oakland Raiders suffered more than just a loss to the Denver Bronco’s during Week 3’s Monday night game. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who presented a strong performance with 281 passing yards and no interceptions, suffered a concussion from a helmet-to-helmet hit by Bronco’s Wesley Woodyard during the fourth quarter. Coach Dennis Allen has since refused to project Pryor’s return to face the Redskins on Sunday. The Raiders, who led the NFL in sacks prior to Monday’s game, put up a surprising fight against the Broncos, but were unable to break Peyton Manning. With or without their starting quarterback, the Raiders will put up a convincing fight at home against the desperate 0-3 Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Rebuild. Improve. New attitude. This is the focus for Oakland Raider’s Head Coach Dennis Allen and team. The rebuilding process began in April when the Raider’s traded last year’s QB Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals for a seventh round draft pick. In the same month, the Seattle Seahawks traded Matt Flynn to the Oakland Raiders for a 2014 fifth round pick and a conditional 2015 draft pick. Flynn is expected to be the starting QB for the Oakland Raiders; but Tyler Wilson, Terrell Pryor, and Matt McGloin are also competing for the spot. In addition, the Raiders signed six of the team’s ten selections from the 2013 NFL Draft. Also new to the Oakland Raider roster in 2013 is WR and return specialist Josh Cribbs and former Raider Charles Woodson.
With the rebuilding process in place, the Oakland Raiders will look to improve from last year’s dismal 4-12 finish. Can the silver and black pick up some wins against division opponents this year? Key games on the Raiders schedule will be against the San Diego Chargers (10/6), Kansas City Chiefs (12/15), and Denver Broncos (12/29). The latter is the most expensive of the three divisional games – Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos tickets are averaging $163, the second most expensive game this season at O.CO Coliseum. The most expensive game at the Oakland Raiders stadium will be Raiders vs. Steelers with an average ticket price of $200 even. Cheap Raiders tickets are available for the Oakland Raiders vs. Tennessee Titans game. After the average price of Oakland Raider tickets this year dropped $37 in the last six weeks, the team has one of the top ten cheapest NFL tickets in 2013. In fact, Raider tickets are $30 cheaper than last year on the secondary market.
