On the Raiders podcast with Tony Renteria:

#1 Tony, two weeks ago the Las Vegas Raiders were collapsing they were on a five game losing streak with them scheduled to start a two game road trip in Denver and Seattle all looked bleak until they had break out games resulting in overtime wins in Denver and Seattle.

#2 Tony, when you saw Raiders quarterback Derek Carr nearly broke down after the game after a home loss to the Indianapolis Colts was that a moment of reckoning for Carr and the Raiders that they mad and they weren’t going to take it anymore?

#3 Also owner Mark Davis had head coach Josh McDaniels back after the fifth straight loss and fans calling for his head. Was it a matter of Davis is not going to fire McDaniels and be on the hook for the rest of his salary or he still had faith in McDaniels to persevere through those tough times.

#4 Tony, the Raiders as now have no chance of making the post season at 4-7. The Raiders would have to win the rest of their games and finish 10-7 that’s six consecutive more games and wins to get some daylight.

#5 Tony, Raiders and Chargers as the Raiders return to Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas to face the Los Angeles Chargers (6-5). The Chargers just got by the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday 25-24. How do you see the outcome between these two teams.

Raiders Beat Seattle In Thriller 40-34

By Barbara Mason

Sunday afternoon the Las Vegas Raiders (3-7) traveled to Lumen Field taking on the Seattle Seahawks (6-4).

The Seahawks got up on the board early, at 14:32 in the opening quarter. Kenneth Walker 111 rushed for 12 yards and the touchdown. The extra point was good and Seattle had the early 7-0 lead. At 9:24 the Raiders tied up the game when Derek Carr connected with Ameer Abdullah for 18 yards. That extra point was good and the game was tied at 7-7. The Seahawks would take the lead into the second quarter. A James Myers 24 Yd Field Goal gave Seattle a 10-7 advantage.

The Seahawks extended their lead in the second quarter when Myers kicked his second field goal of the game, this one for 34 yards giving Seattle a 13-7 lead. The second quarter would prove to be a wild affair. The Raiders took the lead at 10:02 14-13. Derek Carr found Mack Hollins for 36 yards and the touchdown. Las Vegas struck again at 8:29 scoring yet another touchdown. Josh Jacobs got loose for a 30 yards romp downfield into the end zone giving the Raiders a 21-13 lead.

With 5:21 left in the second quarter Seattle’s Tyler Lockett caught a Geno Smith pass for 35 yards. The extra point was good and the Seahawks trailed 20-21. Las Vegas would extend their lead with ten seconds left on the clock in the half. Daniel Carlson made a 36 yard field goal giving the Raiders a 24-20 lead at the half.

The Seahawks scored a touchdown in the third quarter taking the lead 27-24. Kenneth Walker III scored his second touchdown of the game, this time a 12 yard rush for the score. The Raiders would tie up this game at 27 when Daniel Carlson made a 27 Yd Field goal.

The game was knotted at 27-27 going into the fourth quarter. Seattle would score late in the quarter taking a 34-27 lead. Geno Smith connected with Travis Homer for 18 yards and the score.

With 1:54 left in the game the Raiders struck pay dirt to tie up this game once again. Foster Moreau caught a five yard pass from Derek Carr for the touchdown and we had a 34-34 game. There was 1:02 left in regulation when Seattle went back to work. The Seahawks failed to move the ball and the game would go into overtime.

At 4:09 in overtime the Raiders kicker Carlson missed a 37 yard field goal. With 1:19 left Seattle was forced to punt and Las Vegas had one last chance to win this game with 0:12 left on the clock. The Raiders all saw a single play for 86 yards; Josh Jacobs tore up the field to score the winning touchdown. This was no doubt the craziest game with an insane finish that we saw this weekend. The final was 40-34.

It was a terrific game for the Raiders. Derek Carr threw for 293 total yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. The Las Vegas receivers had a banner day. Jacobs and Davante Adams both had 74 receiving yards. Mack Hollins, Ameer Abdullah and Foster Moreau all had significant yardage with Hollins, Abdullah and Moreau cashing in with touchdowns.

Carr-Adams Connection Beats Denver In Overtime 22-16

Carr-Adams Connection Beats Denver In Overtime 22-16

By Barbara Mason

Sunday afternoon two teams that have been struggling all season met at Empower Field at Mile High. The Las Vegas Raiders (3-7) traveled to Denver to take on the Broncos (3-7). The Raiders have quarterback Derek Carr and while not a top ten quarterback, he does fall between 11 and 16th so he is in the top half of the league.

The Broncos have a top ten quarterback in Russell Wilson but his team has still struggled this season. The Raiders ended their three-game skid with a 22-16 win and Denver has lost five of their last six games.

The Raiders have been competitive in most of the games they have lost this year, in fact six of their seven losses were one score games. Derek Carr has struggled without tight-end Darren Waller and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow both out with injury. He does have star wide receiver Davante Adams. He obviously cannot target Adams every time he throws the ball and the Broncos defense ranks second in the league so the Raiders face a mighty challenge.

The Broncos scored first in this game, a touchdown and that would be the only action either team would see in the first quarter. Former Raider Latavius Murray rushed for one yard giving Denver a 7-0 lead.

The Broncos would extend their lead in the second quarter 10-0. Denver kicker Brandon McManus kicked a 48 Yd field goal at 9:19. With 5:36 left in the half Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr found Davante Adams for 31 yards, the touchdown and a Daniel Carlson extra point. Las Vegas was within striking distance trailing 7-10.

The Raiders tied up the game in the third quarter 10-10. Daniel Carlson kicked a 52 Yd field goal and Las Vegas was back in business.

It all came downs to the fourth quarter in a very close match-up. Denver took the lead to start the quarter, at 14:56; a McManus 52 yard field goal and a 13-10 Bronco lead. With eight minutes left in the game the Raiders were threatening in this three-point game. Josh Jacobs was shouldering all the ground work carrying the ball 23 times for 110 yards. The Raiders knotted up the game with a career- best 57 yard field goal from Daniel Carlson. It was all tied up at 13.

After that Raider field goal the Broncos mounted a drive that put them into field goal range. McManus kicked a 48 yard. field goal to break the tie 16-13. The Raiders had some work to do with 3:30 left on the clock. Las Vegas went three and out. The Broncos would now try to run the clock out on this game.

The Broncos needed a single first down to seal the win and could not come up with it. The Raiders had less than two minutes to either tie up this game or win it. Derek Carr found Josh Jacobs for 43 yards with 0:57 left in the game. Carlson would kick a 25 yard field goal to tie up this game at 16. The Broncos had 0:07 to get within field goal range. This game would go into overtime.

The Raiders won the toss and would start their second overtime this year. It could not have been a more dramatic finish in this game. In a beautifully designed play Derek Carr found Davante Adams open for 35 yds and the game-ending touchdown. Las Vegas came away with the win.

This game had its ups and downs for Vegas but they pulled it all together when it really counted. Carr finished 23 of 37 for 298 yards and two touchdowns. Josh Jacobs carried the ball 24 times for 109 yards and had 51 yards receiving.

Carr was able to find seven receivers in this game. Adams had seven receptions for 141 yards. Las Vegas finished this game with 307 receiving yards. The Raiders were pressed and had to go the distance but they persisted and it paid off against a very tough Bronco defense.

Next up for the Raiders next Sunday will be the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 PM PT.

On the Raiders podcast with Rich:

#1 Rich, the Las Vegas Raiders (3-7) got a walk off touchdown on a 35 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Derek Carr who threw to wide receiver Davante Adams in overtime at 8:24 against the Denver Broncos (3-7) for the winning touchdown.

#2 The Broncos got on the scoreboard first when Latavius Murray carried for a one yard touchdown at 6:22 in the first quarter to put Denver on the scoreboard 7-0.

#3 In fourth quarter action Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson booted a 57 yard field goal to give the Raiders a second chance with 0:16 left to tie up the game.

#4 After losing three straight games the Raiders seemed more prepared in this game and wanted to everything they could to avoid losing again.

#5 The Raiders hope to put together two wins in a row as they host the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field in Seattle a 1:05pm kick off. The Raiders have not won two straight games this season yet.

Las Vegas Raiders podcast with Tony Renteria: Raiders got booed by own fans; Is Vegas head coach McDaniels on the hot seat?

On the Raiders podcast with Tony R:

#1 After the Las Vegas Raiders (2-7) loss on Sunday 25-20 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas the Raider fans booed the team off the field and some fans yelled at Raiders owner Mark Davis to fire Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels not quite the exit the Raiders wanted.

#2 McDaniels to say the least is under media and fan scrutiny for the 2-7 start and said during his post game press conference that the trouble and the loses start with him.

#3 Davis told the media that the Raiders did an extensive search for a new coach in the off season and said that he’s building an organization and that Rome wasn’t built in day.

#4 Talk show hosts and reporters say that Raider quarterback Derek Carr who teared up during the post game press conference after last Sunday’s game sounded like he was looking at the end. There was also mention that there might be a strong quarterback class coming out of the draft next season.

#5 The Raiders are headed for Denver (3-6) for this Sunday’s contest. The Broncos lost four of their last five games and lost by a touchdown to the Tennessee Titans 17-10. Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson hasn’t been world beater can the Raiders stop him this Sunday?

Raiders Fall In Final Minute to Colts 25-20

Raiders Fall In Final Minute to Colts 25-20

By Barbara Mason

Last Sunday Nov 6th the Las Vegas Raiders (2-7) lost to the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars 27-20. Quarterback Derek Carr threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns, enough to win most games. Las Vegas only managed 73 rushing yards and the fumble at the end of the game sealed the loss for the Raiders.

Sun Nov 13th the Raiders took on Matt Ryan and the Indianapolis Colts (4-5-1) and fell on the last play of the game 25-20. The Colts scored the first touchdown of the game in the first quarter. A rush by quarterback Matt Ryan up the middle for one yard gave the Colts the early lead 7-0.

In the early minutes of the second quarter Chase McLaughlin kicked a 48 Yd. field goal extending the Indianapolis lead 10-0. Through the first two quarters the Raiders offense was stagnant. In the final minute, at 0:58 Las Vegas showed some life. Quarterback Derek Carr completed a 4 Yd pass to Foster Moreau and a touchdown. The Raiders trailed at the half 13-7 but had finally gotten up on the scoreboard. The Colts had won the coin toss and elected to start the second half.

The Raiders put together an excellent drive late in the third quarter. On a 2nd and 20 Carr found Foster Moreau for 18 yards driving down to the Indianapolis 17 yard line. Moreau was injured during that play and his return was questionable. Three plays later Las Vegas scored when Josh Jacobs rushed for one yard tying up the game at 13. Daniel Carlson kick the extra point giving the Raiders their first lead of the game 14-13.

With less than two minutes left in the third quarter, the Colts put together a successful drive culminating in a Jonathan Taylor touchdown. The attempted two-point conversion failed. Indianapolis took a 19-14 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Raiders scored in the early minutes of the fourth quarter when Derek Carr found Devante Adams in the end zone for 48 yards and the Raiders third touchdown of the day. Las Vegas would attempt a two-point conversion that failed. The Raiders now had a 20-19 lead with 11:36 left in the game.

To this point Matt Ryan had not thrown for a single touchdown. Derek Carr on the other hand had thrown two touchdowns.

The Colts would take back the lead with 5:07 left on the clock 25-20. This was Matt Ryan’s second rushing touchdown of the game. At the two minute warning the Raiders were in Colt territory 1st and 10 at the 49 Yd. line. Las Vegas drove deep into Colt territory and with 55 seconds on the clock had a 4th and seven. It all came down to one final play for the Raiders. An attempted pass from Carr to Adams failed and Indianapolis came away with the win 25-20. Las Vegas had fallen to a dismal 2-7.

The Raiders waited far too long to get this game going. They had a terrible first half and came on strong in the second half but had to play from behind for much of the second half. It was just too little too late.

They had every opportunity to close out this game in the final minute but could not get any offense going. Carr finished with 248 yards passing with two touchdowns, Josh Jacobs had 78 rushing yards and one touchdown, Devante Adams finished with 126 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Next week the Raiders take on the Broncos in Denver a very tough stadium to manage. The atmosphere alone makes winning a challenge. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 PM PT.
