    Getty Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis. Since taking over as the Las Vegas Raiders‘ interim head coach, Rich Bisaccia has a 3-3 record. The team hasn’t been consistently terrible but also hasn’t been consistently great. If the team finishes with a mediocre 9-8 or 8-9 record, it will be difficult for them to evaluate if Bisaccia should be the head coach going forward. Considering the circumstances the Raiders have faced since he got promoted, a mediocre record isn’t the worst outcome in the world. Bisaccia also isn’t the most exciting coach going forward as his years as a special teams coordinator means he’s not an offensive or defensive guru. Even if the Raiders finish with a strong record, owner Mark Davis could look to make a change and hire an exciting candidate. However, he’s “rebuffed inquiries from many interested parties,” according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. “He isn’t ready to go there yet,” a source who has spoken with Davis told La Canfora. “He’s not ready to launch a coaching search. That’s not where he...

    The Las Vegas Raiders and their fans should be happy with the injury update about Darren Waller after the talented tight end’s MRI revealed the extent of his knee injury. Things could certainly be worse for the Las Vegas Raiders after an MRI was done on tight end Darren Waller’s knee. If anything, the Raiders should be pretty relieved after the extent of Waller’s knee injury was revealed in an MRI. According to a tweet from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the MRI indicated that Waller is dealing with a strained IT band in his hurt knee. Rapoport also stated that this is “some very good news” for Waller and the Raiders. #Raiders Pro Bowl TE Darren Waller suffered just a strained IT band in his knee, sources told me and @TomPelissero said after his MRI.

    The Dallas Cowboys lost a close game to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving in a matchup that was overshadowed by the number of penalties that were assessed. Between both teams, there were 28 accepted penalties. Both teams were penalized 14 times. Dallas was hit for 166 yards while the Raiders were hit for 110 yards. Cowboys players were a bit confused over why there were so many flags thrown during the game.

    (CNN)Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime to condemn the Dallas Cowboys to a heartbreaking home 36-33 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving. In what was a penalty-ridden NFL game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a pass interference called on Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown kept the Raiders drive alive in overtime with the scores knotted up. The penalty allowed Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr to set his team up within manageable field goal range to claim a famous victory, and Carlson duly converted his fifth field goal of the game. The win ends a three-game losing streak for the Raiders and is their first Thanksgiving victory since 1968. It is a crushing defeat for the Cowboys who have Super Bowl aspirations this season.

    Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime after Anthony Brown's fourth pass-interference penalty kept the drive alive, and the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Dallas Cowboys 36-33 on Thursday. Carlson's fifth field goal came after Brown was called for interference on Zay Jones on third-and-18. All four of Brown's interference penalties came on third-down incompletions. The Raiders (6-5) ended a three-game losing streak with their first Thanksgiving victory since 1968. It was their fourth appearance on the holiday since then, with the previous two losses coming at the Cowboys. Carlson put Las Vegas ahead 33-30 with a career-long 56-yarder with 1:52 remaining.

    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons was called for roughing the passer, after Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr fell into him. Dallas Cowboys fans had to be dealing with heartburn on Thursday night, and it had nothing to do with Thanksgiving dinner. Rather, it had to do with the calls by officials during their Thanksgiving game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Dallas fans were no doubt furious about one penalty in particular. In the second half, Cowboys rookie linebacker Micah Parsons was called for a roughing the passer penalty. But upon further replay, the flag was thrown after Raiders quarterback Derek Carr…fell right into Parson’s hand and knee.

    Dallas Cowboys and Las Vegas Raiders players broke out into a massive brawl in the third quarter of their Thanksgiving matchup. With about 13 minutes left in the quarter and the Raiders up 17-13, Las Vegas punter A.J. Cole booted the ball down the field and out of bounds.

    (CBS DFW) — It’s been a rough month for the Las Vegas Raiders (5-5) and Dallas Cowboys (7-3). The Raiders started November atop the AFC West, having overcome a scandal-induced coaching change to win five games on the season. They haven’t won since. The Cowboys walloped the Atlanta Falcons a couple weeks ago. But bookending that impressive win are a complete collapse against the Denver Broncos and a partial collapse against the Kansas City Chiefs. It’s unclear which Dallas team will show up on Thanksgiving against the Raiders. The high-scoring Cowboys offense failed to find the end zone in Week 11, settling for three field goals. That wasn’t enough. They lost 19-9 and gave back a game to the Philadelphia Eagles in the division standings. Dak Prescott had a rough afternoon, going 28-43 for 216 yards and two interceptions. He was sacked five times and spent much of the game under duress. Tight end Dalton Schultz caught six passes for 53 yards; Michael Gallup hauled in five passes for 44 yards. Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard combined for 82 yards...
    Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders. (Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports) The Las Vegas Raiders have come crashing back to earth after suffering three straight losses. Even though the Las Vegas Raiders have cratered back to .500 after three straight losses, the Silver and Black have to pick up the pieces fast because they are playing the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. At one point in the year, the Raiders were 5-2 and looking very much like a playoff team. However, they have struggled of late with Rich Bisaccia serving as the interim head coach. Though they had a shot to stop the bleeding when the Cincinnati Bengals came to town, Joe Burrow and company had no issues carving up a bewildered Raiders defense.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Patrick Mahomes threw five touchdown passes and returned to his usual form after a surprisingly shaky stretch this season, and the Kansas City Chiefs moved into first place in the AFC West with a 41-14 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday night. Mahomes and the Chiefs (6-4) showed little resemblance to the team that overpowered the AFC the past three seasons over the first nine weeks, raising questions about whether they could make it back to a third straight Super Bowl. But they used a dominant performance over the Raiders (5-4) on a day everyone else in the division lost to return to the top of the standings. Mahomes completed three short TD passes before flashing his playmaking brilliance early in the fourth quarter after Kansas City converted a fake punt on a 16-yard pass from Tommy Townsend to Marcus Kemp. Two plays later, Mahomes scrambled away from pressure and just before crossing the line of scrimmage lofted a deep pass across his body that Darrel Williams caught for a 38-yard TD that made...
    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver DeSean Jackson looked to have a touchdown reception. Instead, he ran backwards and fumbled the ball against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Las Vegas Raiders, in need of wide receiver depth, gave DeSean Jackson a call and signed him to a deal for the remainder of the season. The veteran wide receiver requested a trade from the Los Angeles Rams, but was released after the deadline passed when they could not find a deal. Jackson made his debut for the team on Sunday night in a pivotal AFC West matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. In the third quarter, quarterback Derek Carr hit Jackson on a huge pass. Jackson had an easy path to the end zone, but the wideout decided to juke away and spin around from the Chiefs defensive backs.

    Ethan Miller/Getty Images Jon Gruden, who was recently ousted as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, is suing the National Football League and Commissioner Roger Goodell. Gruden was at the center of serious controversy over a series of emails reported in the past month. The first report revealed he said of NFL Players’ Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith, a Black man, “Dumboriss Smith has lips the size of michellin tires.” Subsequent reporting said he sent out emails with homophobic and misogynistic language. Gruden ultimately resigned. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Gruden now says he was “forced to resign” after “a malicious and orchestrated campaign.” The lawsuit from Gruden accuses the NFL and Goodell of a “a Soviet-style character assassination.” “There was no warning and no process. Defendants held the emails for months until they were leaked to the national media in the middle of the Raiders’ season in order to cause maximum damage to Gruden,” it reads. The lawsuit also claims that they “ratcheted up the pressure by intimating that further documents would become public if Gruden was...

"Through a malicious and orchestrated campaign, the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell sought to destroy the career and reputation of Jon Gruden, the former head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders," said the lawsuit filed Thursday in Clark County District Court in Nevada. The lawsuit also alleges that Gruden was "forced" to resign.  NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy on Friday called Gruden's allegations "entirely meritless" and said it "will vigorously defend against these claims." Gruden's move to take legal action comes after reports that his emails included a past racist remark about NFL players' union head DeMaurice Smith, as well as sexist and homophobic language.

    Derek Carr sliced up the Denver defense for 341 yards and two touchdowns, Maxx Crosby made three sacks and the Las Vegas Raiders started the post-Jon Gruden era with a 34-24 thrashing of the bewildered Broncos on Sunday. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The Raiders (4-2) gave longtime special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia a win in his debut as interim head coach and offensive coordinator Greg Olson was masterful in his first play-calling duties for Las Vegas since Carr's rookie season in 2014. The Raiders began by ending an 11-game streak without a score on their opening drive. They never let up, burning the Broncos' beleaguered secondary that couldn't keep up with Carr and his targets. Nor could Denver's deficient offense keep pace. Teddy Bridgewater threw a season-high three interceptions and lost a fumble, negating his 334 yards passing and three TDs.

    HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Desean Jackson said the first time he attended an NFL game, as a fan around 7 or 8 years old, the Kansas City Chiefs were visiting the Raiders in Oakland. Ever since then, he wanted to play in the NFL. The Raiders’ new wide receiver will get his first taste of the AFC West rivalry as a player when the Chiefs visit Las Vegas on Sunday night. “Putting on the black and the silver, it’s definitely gonna be special,” Jackson said after practice on Wednesday. Jackson was released last week by the Los Angeles Rams and signed with Las Vegas on Monday. The speedy 14-year veteran hopes have an immediate impact for an offense that stalled last week in a 23-16 loss to the New York Giants. “I’m not asking to get the ball 100 times, I’m not asking to play 100 percent — whatever that role is that fits, just let me play it to the best of my ability,” said Jackson, who has led the league four times in yards per reception. “Being that...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders WR DeSean Jackson. The Las Vegas Raiders were lucky enough to get some serious reinforcements this late in the season when they signed wide receiver DeSean Jackson. The three-time Pro Bowler is 34-years-old but is still a serious deep threat, which is exactly what the team needed. Jackson likely could’ve found other suitors in free agency but found the Raiders appealing for a number of reasons. A big reason he wanted to head to Las Vegas was thanks to quarterback Derek Carr. He’s currently third in the NFL with 2,565 passing yards and could get serious MVP consideration if the Raiders make the playoffs. Jackson has been familiar with Carr for years and praised the quarterback’s ability in his first comments since joining the team. “Obviously having Derek Carr at quarterback – I’ve been able to see him do some special things in his career, obviously going back to his rookie year,” Jackson said of Carr after Wednesday’s practice. “His arm strength, his big-play ability, his toughness, his swagger. His intangibles to be a...
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Their $100 million coach is gone, his career destroyed by emails as vile as they were disturbing. The team president who spearheaded the Raiders’ move to Las Vegas is looking for a new job, too, after reportedly botching some tax payments. Their wide receiver of the future now has a future that likely includes prison after a woman died in a fiery crash he caused by driving drunk. The other first-round draft pick from last year was sent packing this week after a video surfaced of him, gun in hand, threatening someone’s life. The Raiders have always had issues, but nothing like this. Their first season before paying fans in Las Vegas has been overshadowed by a tsunami of off-field events that have shaken the franchise to the core. So far, at least, they’ve been able to compartmentalize enough to go 5-3 and share the lead in the AFC West. They play Sunday night at home against the Chiefs in a game that should offer more clues about their chances of making the playoffs for the...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia. The start of Rich Bisaccia’s tenure as the interim head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders went about as perfectly as possible. He led the team to two decisive wins over the Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles in back-to-back weeks. The Raiders then went into the bye ahead of a game against the New York Giants. The team came out flat and lost 23-16. One loss won’t sink Bisaccia’s chances of removing the interim tag from his title but it certainly won’t help. The Raiders have a lot to think about between now and the offseason. Owner Mark Davis was hoping to not have to think about who would be coaching his team for the next decade prior to Jon Gruden resigning. Bisaccia is a respected coach and beloved by the players, but that might not be enough for Davis. According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the Raiders are likely to look elsewhere this offseason. “The Raiders will likely look for someone to replace interim coach Rich Bisaccia, though it’s...

    The Las Vegas Raiders are signing veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson, a sign that the team is grasping at straws after a tough week.  On the same day that the Las Vegas Raiders offense couldn’t get off the ground in an eventual loss to the New York Giants, the franchise is making a move to, at least in theory, improve upon that. Per Josina Anderson, the silver and black are adding veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson to the fold. Jackson began the year with the Los Angeles Rams but, after speaking with the team and playing a minimal role with the prolific offense, he was released, thus opening the door for the Raiders to ink him to a deal. Bringing in Jackson comes less than a week after former first-round pick Henry Ruggs III was involved in a deadly car crash that led to him being charged with DUI resulting in fatality, among other charges.
