  • Raiders WR Jordy Nelson not sweating quiet start

    Being Derek Carr's primary receiving target has resulted in a gaudy stat line in each of the Raiders' first two games. Tight end Jared Cook had nine catches for 180 yards in Week 1. Last weekend in Denver, receiver Amari Cooper had 10 catches on 10 targets for 116 yards. "So maybe I'm in the rotation this week," receiver Jordy Nelson said, grinning. "We'll see." Nelson, the Raiders' biggest free-agent acquisition this spring, is off to a quiet start with five catches for 53 yards in two games....

  • Raiders lose 20-19 to Broncos on last-minute field goal

    DENVER - Holding a two-point lead with less than two minutes remaining, a Raiders defense that had shut out the Broncos for the first half Sunday took the field needing one more stop. "We have a chance to shut them" down, linebacker Derrick Johnson said. "As a defense, we've got to be licking our chops and saying, 'Hey, let's go. Here we go.'" Instead, it was the Broncos who went 62 yards in 10 plays, driving from their 20-yard-line to set up a 36-yard field goal by Brandon McManus in a 20-19...

  • Raiders snap counts: Defensive front rotates but doesn’t generate much pressure

    Last season, Bruce Irvin was on the field for nearly 85 percent of the Raiders' defensive snaps and never fewer than two-thirds of their snaps in a game. In Monday night's 33-13 loss to the Rams, Irvin played fewer than half of the defensive snaps for the Raiders - 31 of 63. Irvin's in a new role this season as a rush-first defensive end, and as promised the Raiders used a heavy rotation along their defensive front in their season-opener. As some might have feared, meanwhile, particularly after...

  • Jon Gruden: Raiders’ trade for WR Martavis Bryant was risk ‘worth taking’

    The third-round draft pick the Raiders traded to Pittsburgh for Martavis Bryant in April became a sunk cost Saturday when Oakland waived the wide receiver amid cut-downs to reach the roster limit. Head coach Jon Gruden, though, said Sunday he does not consider the trade a mistake. "I think the guy's a superb talent," Gruden said of Bryant. "Not everything's a perfect science. We'll be criticized for that. But it was a risk, I think, well worth taking." Bryant, 26, had 17 touchdown catches in 36...
