"We need Barzy on a nightly basis to bring it and he's been pretty consistent to this point", Weight said. Ward was really good; give him credit. With Lee off for tripping, Clutterbuck doubled the lead 36 seconds later on a short-handed breakaway into the top right corner. (more...)

- November 20, 2017

Elway said he thinks Vance Joseph has done a "nice" job in the same interview he called Joseph's team "soft" after starting so well. "If you're not winning, that's an issue in football-football is a tough sport". "When you're in these type of things that's all you can do", Elway said. Instead of avoiding the comments leading up to the team's critical tenth-game of the season, Joseph addressed it head on at the team's usual night-before-the-game meeting. (more...)

- November 20, 2017

That doesn't mean that he doesn't still have time to do so, but Week 11's contest should be a telling one for the 26-year-old former Fresno State product with Oakland's playoff hopes grim. Gostkowski, kicking in high altitude, also hit on field goals of 51, 40 and 29 yards. If Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is still the measuring stick for young quarterbacks to aspire to, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has a long way to go to get on the five-time Super Bowl champion's level in one key ...
