Raiders learn of their London opponent


The league announced Thursday morning that the Raiders will host the Miami Dolphins in one of three games played in London in 2014.
The Falcons and Lions are playing, as well as the Jaguars and Cowboys. The uniqueness of the Raiders opponent is that the Dolphins come from within the AFC. Typically, the NFL prefers teams that play in London be from opposing conferences.
More on this later, perhaps with a comment from coach Dennis Allen and a player or two.

    Yes. One every four years. And they’ve lost two straight. Hence the plural.

    Off Topic…
    So someone at my work family’s member kid gets to visit the White House for Halloween, no masks and no guns…what should they be?

    I hear ya but man when Al drafted DHB, he proved all his critics right. Not that he should care what they think, but I couldn’t defend him anymore against the “height weight speed” track players label. Don’t remember what other players were available when DHB was picked, but I remember being highly disappointed. Didn’t take me long to root for him though.

    And gained all kinds of House and Gov seats since 2008.
    I think Repubs have come to grips with controlling local government and the House and let the Dems run the WH.
    They send up Palin, McCain, Romney and others to die on the sword and keep the real talent protected in Congress.

    Racism and politics. Custom made for KK’s upvotes to get a significant boost. Must still be sleeping.

    I tend to put Senate and House elections more under the umbrella of national than local elections as well.

    If they don’t change their message, that’s exactly what will happen. Except repeated Democratic presidents will result in liberal SCOTUS Justice after liberal SCOTUS Justice, which will result in the nation’s laws shifting to the left. Example: a President McCain would have appointed more conservative justices than Sonya Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. One less vote and the ACA would have been overturned, whether Roberts flip-flopped at the last moment or not.

    What’s risky about it? The Tampa Bay players hate Schiano and want him gone. I predict they’ll play flat and half-assed, and either Butch Davis or Dave Wannstedt will be the Buc head coach this time tomorrow.

    And even then, playing at less than 100% can hurt you. Remember Peyton and the Colts?

    Don’t see much home field advantage here. Phins even get shorter flight.

    Falcons and lions are both NFC teams..
