    (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.

    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.

    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. Jackson then fumbled after cornerback Rashad Fenton smacked the ball out of his hands and safety Tyrann Mathieu recovered it. Does DeSean Jackson know which way to run?

'Hi, I'm NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and when you see me on TV, it's never good,' Jost says as the embattled commissioner.  'This time, one of our coaches is accused of racism, misogyny, and homophobia, but hey, at least no one's talking about concussions,' he added. He then pointed out that the emails also featured several snipes at him.  'I think we can all agree the emails sent by Raiders coach Jon Gruden were horrifying and deeply offensive, especially to me,' he said.    Saturday Night Live opened up the...
    Jon Gruden has been dropped from the Madden NFL 22 video game after he resigned as coach of the Las Vegas Raiders over offensive language he used in emails. The 58-year-old quit after emails he sent before being re-hired in 2018 were found to contain racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments.  The emails were discovered during an NFL workplace misconduct investigation into the Washington Football Team (WFT), while Gruden was working as a pundit for ESPN.  EA Sports tweeted Wednesday that it was 'taking steps to remove' Gruden from the latest version of its popular pro football game and would 'replace him with a general likeness via a title update in the coming weeks.'

    The NFL has denied leaking Jon Gruden's offensive emails that led to him resigning as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. The 58-year-old quit after emails he sent before being re-hired in 2018 were found to contain racist, homophobic and misogynistic comments. The emails were discovered in an NFL workplace misconduct investigation into the Washington Football Team (WFT), while Gruden was working as a pundit for ESPN.  According to two sources close to the investigation, cited by AOL, a large number of people could have accessed the materials that were given to the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times last week. Both sources, however, dispelled one notion that has been suggested: That someone at the NFL Player's Association or executive director DeMaurice Smith had a hand in leaking the emails to reporters. With the league's denial, questions have now turned to who was behind the leak, and whether the violation of a confidential investigative process could lead to future legal ramifications for the NFL.  Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden speaks on his headset during the first half...

    (CNN)Jon Gruden, who resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders following reports of homophobic, racist and misogynistic emails, was not even a target of the NFL investigation which led to his rapid downfall. Neither were the Raiders. In fact, the questionable emails were uncovered as part of a league investigation into workplace misconduct at the Washington Football Team (WFT), which is concerning to many observers, given the modern National Football League's efforts to become more inclusive and diverse. "The question we should be asking is not really [about] the existence of the e-mails, but what is the culture in the NFL, period," said Jemelle Hill, a contributing writer for The Atlantic."And this culture has existed since the very inception of the NFL... It's about all the people he was emailing. And people realize that he was emailing back and forth...

Gruden, who was working as the analyst for ESPN's Monday Night Football at the time, was contrite about the offensive email, which was sent to a team executive, Bruce Allen, ten years ago. 'I was upset,' Gruden told the news outlet. 'I used a horrible way of explaining it.'

It was glaring when the club had only 13 sacks in 2018 following the trade of edge rusher Khalil Mack. While the unit improved in 2019, it regressed to finish 25th in yards allowed and 30th in points allowed in 2020. So Las Vegas replaced defensive coordinator Paul Guenther with Gus Bradley and signed several veterans — headlined by edge rusher Yannick Ngakoue — to make the unit more competitive in the coming year. During an appearance on The NFL Rhodes Show with Lindsay Rhodes, General Manager Mike Mayock noted just how important Las Vegas’ defensive improvement is for 2021. “We have to get so much better [on defense]. I know it, Jon knows it. We all know it,” Mayock said, via Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We’ve got to...
    Getty Former NFL WR Chad Johnson. Training camp is closing in for the Las Vegas Raiders and there are reasons to be optimistic. They’ve made key improvements all over the roster and could be a surprise team this season. One of the most important groups to watch in training camp will be the wide receivers. Nelson Agholor was the team’s best wide receiver last year but he signed a big contract with the New England Patriots in the offseason. Perhaps the Raiders could still find a veteran wide receiver to replace him. Six-time Pro Bowler Chad Johnson recently traveled to Las Vegas and said he was there to try out for the Raiders.

    Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib's decision to come out as gay has been met with a wave of support from a diverse cross section of the United States. Members of the LGBTQ community, current and former athletes, politicians, and a number of prominent celebrities praised Nassib's courage as he became the first active NFL player to publicly reveal he is gay.

    Mandatory Credit: Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Entering Year 4 of Jon Gruden, part two, these three players are hidden gems on the Las Vegas Raiders roster. The Las Vegas Raiders have upped their win total in each of Jon Gruden’s three seasons back as  head coach, from four to seven to eight. They gave the Kansas City Chiefs their only loss in a game they were trying to win last year, and nearly beat the two-time reigning AFC champions twice. Gruden has the security that comes with a 10-year contract, so it’s safe to say others (like GM Mike Mayock) are on a hotter seat than he is entering the 2021 season. But it’s still time for the novelty attached to Gruden to start yielding better results. Via the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Raiders’ head coach knows it’s time. “We proved we can compete in the AFC West,” Gruden said. “We proved we can win on the road. Now we’ve got to prove we can win at a much higher level.” If the Raiders are even marginally better defensively,...
    Among all 32 teams in the NFL, the Las Vegas Raiders rank above the rest in terms of COVID-19 vaccination rates. NFL minicamps have begun and concluded this week, but the main topic surrounding the event has been in regards to the COVID-19 vaccine, specifically vaccine hesitancy. The football world has listened to emphatic stances against the vaccine and non-committal statements about whether they were going to get inoculated. That left many wondering who was doing the best in terms of vaccination rates. According to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Las Vegas Raiders “might be the best in the league” in terms of COVID-19 vaccination rates. Bonsignore also added that Las Vegas’ entire coaching staff has been vaccinated.

    Raiders fans won’t be able to dream of an undefeated season for very long. Las Vegas’ first loss will come very early in their 2021 regular season.  The Raiders would love to get off to a quick start in 2021 to improve their odds of making the postseason. Unfortunately, the NFL didn’t do Las Vegas any favors when it comes to their upcoming schedule. Any dreams the Raiders have of enjoying a magical undefeated season will be quickly dashed after Week 1. Las Vegas opens the year with a high-profile matchup against the Ravens on Monday Night Football. That happens to be the day when the Raiders will incur their first loss of the 2021 regular season. The ugly truth for the Las Vegas defense is that they just don’t match up well against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ offense. Gus Bradley will need time to get his personnel comfortable with his new defensive system. Playing Baltimore right out of the gate is one of the worst draws possible for Las Vegas’ new defensive coordinator.The Raiders have a problem at...

    Mike Mayock, Oakland Raiders. (Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports) The Las Vegas Raiders only have themselves to blame for the 2021 NFL Draft  It’s hard to fault Las Vegas of the Trevon Moehrig selection because of the need. However, Las Vegas had two third round picks following the move up to the No. 43 spot. They also used picks to trade back into the fourth round to grab another defensive player. Knowing what happened following the Moehrig, why not pair another third and fourth-round pick to grab Oklahoma’s Creedy Humphrey  —  who know will be playing against the defensive line twice a season in Kansas City.

    Alex Leatherwood of the Alabama Crimson Tide. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images) The Raiders did a poor job of finding value in the 2021 NFL Draft, but these three players have a chance to emerge as valuable contributors for Las Vegas.  Raiders fans should be disappointed in the work their team’s front office did during the 2021 NFL Draft. Las Vegas regularly reached for players that could have been acquired in later rounds. It’s one thing to trust your board over everyone else’s evaluations, but it’s an entirely different matter to squander multiple opportunities to trade back and acquire more picks. That doesn’t mean no members of this year’s Raiders’ draft class have a chance to emerge as quality NFL players.

    Former Raiders DT Maurice Hurst. Mandatory Credit: Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports The Las Vegas Raiders had a lot of work to do this offseason, but some of the moves John Gruden and company made look like costly mistakes. What will it take for the Raiders to get back to the playoffs? How can Jon Gruden drag the team back into real title contention? Good decisions are the key to it all. Unfortunately, the move to Las Vegas didn’t take away the Raiders’ penchant for making decisions that make you wonder exactly what they’re trying to accomplish. These are the biggest mistakes made by the Raiders this offseason, with a few ideas to fix them…Waiving Maurice HurstMaurice Hurst didn’t have a fabulous showing in three years with the Raiders, but he showed promise at times and wasn’t going to cost the team much going into 2021. So they released him. Yeah. Injuries plagued Hurst, so it makes sense if the team got tired of waiting for him to reach his potential. It’s still strange knowing the player did seem to be...
    Next1 of 5Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse If the Las Vegas Raiders are going to threaten the Kansas City Chiefs in 2021, these five breakout candidates will have a big hand in it. The Las Vegas Raiders have upped their win total in each of Jon Gruden’s three seasons back as head coach, from four to seven to eight. The comfort of a 10-year contract allows Gruden to build it slowly, but last year’s fade from 7-5 to 8-8 and out of the playoff contention by Week 17 creates some urgency for 2021. The Raiders were the only team to beat the Kansas City Chiefs when they were playing all their key players last year, and they nearly did it twice. So that’s a huge confidence builder, as long as they take care of business elsewhere. Las Vegas’ weakness last year was the defense, and new coordinator Gus Bradley will be charged with fixing it. Even a middle of the road unit that forces some turnovers could bring 10 wins in 2021. As the Raiders look...
    LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – DECEMBER 17: Head coach Jon Gruden of the Las Vegas Raiders on the sidelines during the NFL game against the Los Angeles Chargers at Allegiant Stadium on December 17, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Chargers defeated the Raiders in overtime 30-27. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) The Raiders are on a mission to make the playoffs in 2021. Here are five first round picks that can help Las Vegas achieve that goal.  Mike Mayock and his front office have an alarmingly simple mission heading into the offseason. The Raiders must drastically improve their defense if they want to become a playoff team in 2021. Derek Carr and the offense offer more than enough to get this squad into the postseason, but Las Vegas needs to stop hemorrhaging points on the other side of the ball. That reality means the Raiders must spend their No. 17 overall pick in Round 1 on a player who can step right and help their defense immediately. The good news is that Las Vegas could benefit from adding talent at...
