Los Vegas Raiders podcast with Rich Perez: Is Josh McDaniels losing the team; Question on the Raiders focus in letting games get away

On the Raiders podcast with Rich:

#1 With the Las Vegas Raiders latest loss dropping them to 3-6 they’re playoff hopes looked dashed short of a miracle.

#2 One of the reasons why the Raiders playoff hopes look dimmer and dimmer is just the amount of blown plays and mistake they have made particularly in in their last two road games in New Orleans and Jacksonville.

#3 During training camp first year head coach Josh McDaniels tried to explain to his players the ways of how not to lose. It might be possible that the players forgot that early lesson McDaniels tried to lay down.

#4 The Raiders wide receiver Devante Adams said the Raiders strayed away from what worked earlier in game but the Raiders just couldn’t get any offense going in the second half and quarterback Derek Carr saying serious internal discussions needed to take place.

#5 Those serious discussions that Carr was talking about has to take place and get solved soon enough as the Raiders prepare for Indianapolis Colts for this Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The Colts have lost three in a row the Raiders hope to push to extend that losing streak this Sunday.

Raiders Lose To Struggling Jaguars 27-20

By Barbara Mason

Last Sunday the Las Vegas Raiders (2-6) got blindsided by the New Orleans Saints 24-0. This Sunday the Raiders were looking to get back on track taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6) who have had major struggles of their own, one of them being unable to close out games.

They have lost numerous games by a single touchdown coming close far too many times. The Jags broke out of their three game losing streak with a 27-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Jacksonville.

The Raiders were first up on the scoreboard in the opening quarter taking a 7-0 lead. Devante Adams caught a pass from Derek Carr for 25 yards and the lead in this game.

The Raiders would tack on more points in the second quarter off a Daniel Carlson 38 Yd Field goal to take a 10-0 lead. Las Vegas struck again in the second when Carr connected again with Adams this pass for 38 yards and a 17-0 lead. The Raiders were really rolling in the first half of this game.

With 4:50 left in the half the Jaguars got up on the board. A Travis Etienne Jr. one yard romp gave Jacksonville their first touchdown of the game still trailing the Raiders 17-7. Before the quarter ended both kickers added to their respective teams tally. The Raiders Daniel Carlson kicked a 38 yard field goal and the Jaguars Riley Patterson was good for a 44 yard field goal. At the half the score was 20-10.

Jacksonville turned this game around with their first possession in the second half. Christian Kirk caught a seven yard pass for a touchdown and the Jaguars had trimmed the Raiders lead to 20-17. Offensively Las Vegas cooled off having trouble moving the ball at all in the second half.

Jacksonville kept the pressure on scoring in the opening minute of the fourth quarter taking a 24-20 lead, their first of the game. Again it was Etienne Jr. rushing for 5 yards.

With under three minutes left in the game the Raiders had the ball with no time outs but a chance to salvage the game. The Jaguars came up with some great defensive stops and they were able to put an end to their five game losing streak. Jacksonville added insult to injury in the closing minutes of the game with a 48 Yd field goal from Patterson.

The Raiders did get the ball back with 1:01 left on the clock. In that final possession Derek Carr was sacked and intercepted. This was a great comeback win for Jacksonville. The final was 27-20.

It was indeed a tale of two halves. The Raiders had a great first half and a miserable second half. Carr had 223 passing yards in the first half and only 36 yards in the second in a stunning turnaround. Josh Jacobs finished with 67 yards rushing and 20 yards receiving. Devante Adams had a great first half with two touchdowns and 146 yards receiving but not much going on in the second half.

This was an awful loss for Las Vegas who also struggled terribly last week against the Saints. They will take on the Colts next Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in another winnable game at home. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 and will air on CBS.

Las Vegas podcast with Tony Renteria:

#1 Tony, Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said that it means a lot to him to return to his old haunt at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium where he played as starting quarterback at Canton McKinley High School where the Raiders will face the Jacksonville Jaguars for the Hall of Fame game on Thu Aug 4h.

#2 McDaniels said it was special to drive down the road where it’s dotted with football helmets towards the stadium and where it was on McDaniels way to get to high school each day, “It was fun I played all my games in this stadium.”

#3Tony, how big of a move is it that the Raiders signed pass rusher Chandler Jones. Jones has not been on the field much for this year’s practices and has missed four straight practice sessions so far.

#4 James Palmer of NFL Media report said that there is no concern that it’s early in the pre season schedule and that Jones wants players to get some reps in before the regular season kicks off.

#5 Also tight end Darren Waller has taken the second straight day of practice off for basically the same reason. Besides giving teammates time to get more reps in no doubt Waller is getting some rest in before this Thursday’s Hall of Fame game?

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: Can 49ers open up the offense against Vikings today at Levi Stadium?

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 San Francisco 49er linebacker Dre Greenlaw and defensive end Dee Ford both have practiced this week but have not been activated and are not on the injured list could you talk about their status?

#2 Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Kirk Cousins who play the 49ers today at Levi Stadium has had less turnovers than 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. When you consider though that Green Bay Packers safety Darnell Savage picked off Cousins three times but each interception was negated by the officials. Nonetheless it shows that Cousins could be flawed.

#3 The 49ers won their third game in four weeks against the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sun Nov 21st by a convincing 30-10 final. For Garoppolo 16-22, 176 yards, and two touchdowns the 49ers had quite an offensive day last Sunday with Garoppolo under center.

#4 Joe, talk about Brandon Aiyuk who caught seven passes for 85 yards, and a touchdown against Jacksonville and has been a key to the offense these past four weeks.

#5 The 49ers host the Vikings today at Levi Stadium. The Vikings just got by the Green Bay Packers last Sunday 34-31. Cousins was 24-35 for 341 yards and three touchdowns. How do you see the Vikings matching up against the 49ers today at Levi.

49ers power past Jaguars 30-10

There are teams you are supposed to beat if you want to contend for the playoffs.

The San Francisco 49ers easily took care of business in their 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon at TIAA Bank Field.

What could have been a trap game for San Francisco (just ask the Buffalo Bills) having to play an east coat game against a bad team, the 49ers game plan went according to script.

San Francisco have won two games in a row and are in a four way tie in the NFC for the seventh and final playoff spot. Jacksonville have lost two games in a row after stunning the Bills three weeks ago in a 9-6 win.

The 49ers (5-5) opened the game with the longest drive in the NFL since 2000. They went 20 plays for 87 yards in a span of 13:05. They failed to get a touchdown as the drive waas capped off with a 20 yard field goal from Robbie Gould

On the 49ers next possession, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo led a seven play 80 yard drive that resulted in a 25 yard rushing touchdown by Deebo Samuel. The third year wide receiver lined up in the backfield and ran a sweep down the left sideline for paydirt. It was Samuel’s third rushing touchdown of the season.

San Francisco’s defense were able to get back the ball to offense when Josh Norman punched the ball loose on a Laviska Shenault reception. Fred Warner recovered the fumble at the Bengals 35 yard line.

The 49ers scored capitalized on the turnover as Garoppolo connected with Brandon Aiyuk on a six yard touchdown reception to extend its lead to 17-0.

Jacksonville (2-8) finally got on the board just after the two minute warning when 12 play 67 yard drive Matthew Wright kicked a 30 yard field goal with 1:53 left in the 2nd quarter.

San Francisco responded with seven play 45 yard drive of their own. They ended the half with a 48 yard field goal from Gould.

The 49ers defense picked up where it left off in the first half by dominating the Jaguars offensive line and putting constant pressure on Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

San Francisco held Jacksonville to just 54 yards on the game. Contrary to the Niners rushing attack that controlled the time of possession with 171 yards on the ground.

San Francisco put the game away with their first possession of the second half that resulted in another long, time consuming drive.

Garoppolo led the Niners on a 11 play 77 yard drive that consumed 5:45. Garoppolo completed the drive with one yard touchdown reception to tight end George Kittle to give the Niners a commanding 27-3 lead.

Jacksonville scored its only touchdown of the game late in the fourth quarter in what is known as garbage time. James Robinson ran in a one yard touchdown that only fantasy football owners appreciated.

Garoppolo finished the afternoon 16 of 22 for 176 yards and two touchdowns with a 126.3 quarterback rating. Samuel led the 49ers in rushing with 79 yards on eight carries and one touchdown.

Aiyuk lead all wide receivers catching all seven targets for 85 yards and one touchdown.

Lawrence, the 2021 number one pick, finished 16 of 25 for 158 yards with no touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 81.8.

Warner led the Niners defense with seven combined tackles. Arden Key had a sack for a second consecutive game.

GAME NOTES: San Francisco finished 6-for-12 on third down conversions. Jacksonville was 5-for-11.

UP NEXT: San Francisco returns home to host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday 11/28 at 1:25pm at Levi’s Stadium.
