Live updates: Raiders facing Bills on Sunday

Share

Get live scoring updates, news and analysis Sunday at 1:05 p.m. when the Raiders take on the Buffalo Bills at the Coliseum.

The Raiders (9-2) are hoping to extend Buffalo’s losing ways in the Coliseum as the Bills (6-5) haven’t won a game here in 50 years.

“Fifth years ago?” Bills coach Rex Ryan said. “That’s amazing. Woof. You talk about a drought.”

Speaking of droughts, the Bills have the NFL’s longest streak of missing the playoffs — 16 years.

Buffalo’s last win at the Coliseum came on Thanksgiving Day in 1966 in just the fifth Raiders game ever at the then-new facility. The Bills, who had a young backup quarterback in Daryle Lamonica who would go on to become a star for the Raiders, beat Oakland 31-10 that day.

For trivia buffs, the Bills have played the Raiders 15 times in the Bay Area, going 1-8 at the Coliseum, 2-2 at Frank Youell Field (now Laney College), 1-0 at Kezar Stadium and 0-1 at Candlestick Park.

How will history treat the Raiders and Bills today? It may all depend on how well the Raiders can corral the Bills’ strong running attack led by LeSean McCoy and quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

The Raiders can also help matters by getting another strong performance from quarterback Derek Carr and their offense. Meanwhile, Khalil Mack, a former University of Buffalo star, will no doubt be looking forward to making some noise against the Bills.

    You mean the game manager

  • rifflicks

    I asked Durkin to have the moderators block their link

  • Raiders21

    Teams bracket receivers all the time. If a TE can chip defenders at the line of scrimmage why not return the favor.

  • rifflicks

    Never Underestimate Smith ….he is way more than a game manager and has proved it numerous occasions this season

  • rifflicks

    because hindering your top pass rushers is ridiculous

  • Raiders21

    what makes him dangerous is his running ability. that is the worst. Irvin will probably have to QB spy some like he did against buffalo

    .@52Mack_ has nine sacks, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and an interception in his past seven games.

  • Raiders21

    If a TE is going to chip you at the line can you dish out the same punishment back or do you have to just take it?

  • rifflicks

    they are supposed to play througj the chips and blocks to hold the edge and/or rush the passer…..you don’t tie them up trying to chip someone that may or may not have a receiving assignment on every play

  • Raiders21

    o man id love to chip the chipper and then run over the tackle and knock the snot out of the QB

    FREE ALDON!!!

    The player most hate just keeps making plays

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Hopefully they let him play.. He did his time for his crime, and now it’s time to let him shine..

  • idahoraiderfan33

    DPOY numbers right there

  • idahoraiderfan33

    It’s all good.. What a game dude.. It looked pretty bad there for a bit, but this RAIDER team refuses to lose..

    And it’s been proved already,now we just need to continue winning

  • Raiders21

    Nate was looking really good before Ray Ray destroyed his knee. Now he is healthy again and played great yesterday.

  • idahoraiderfan33

    That’s why i never really understood that hate for Allen.. Didn’t he make the game saving pick against the Titans??
    He’s just one of those players that seems to be around the ball and make the big play..

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Now don’t get me wrong, we need Joseph, dude is a rookie phenom!!
    I just think Allen is not as bad as fans make him out to be, imo

  • idahoraiderfan33

    IMO i think MEJ is the more important player, why
    He can bring the pressure from the inside and outside.. Great in the run game as well..
    Again imho he is second to Mack in pure talent on the defensive side of the ball..

  • Raiders21

    Agree, same page

  • Raiders21

    Yup, MEJ was almost unblockable towards the end of the season before getting hurt. He was the one other guy on the d line that opposing teams had to really game plan against besides Mack.

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Aldon Smith, MEJ, Joseph, McGee and Latham ALL freakin hurt!!
    That’s a lot of talent!! Massive talent

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Do ANY of the RAIDER beat writers have any word on what’s going on with these IMPACT players??

  • CARR SHOW (baby Al)
  • idahoraiderfan33

    Aldon Smith is a huge name former All Pro and great player no doubt..
    But MEJ was starting to have a Mack type impact on this team, just a beast!!
    I remember i read a draft redo somewhere and MEJ would of went in the top 10!! Power, speed and moves.. Man i hope he can play

    Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan

    Ryan discussed the Raiders putting up 29 unanswered points, and what led to that happening.

    Week 13: Bills vs. Raiders highlights
    Share:

    “You can’t ever have that happen to you. To their credit now this team has done this a bunch. This is a heck of an offense. When you look at it, they have a lot of weapons and their quarterback is playing extremely well. Combine that with an offensive line and good running backs I mean we knew it was going to be tough. There’s no question about it. By no means am I trying to short that team. That team is a good football team.”

    He shared that the Raiders are good at keeping the pressure on and staying resilient.

    “It was tough and they can do a lot of things to keep you on your heels. They can run the football and if you don’t have enough guys in that box, they can run the ball in and they’ve proved that against a lot of teams. It’s kind of pick your poison. We tried everything. We were rushing three, we were rushing four, rushing five. Simulated pressures, we were giving all of that and we ran a whole lot of true zeros, but I give them credit, they made the plays.”

  • CARR SHOW (baby Al)

    Ryan talked about defensive end Khalil Mack’s performance against the Bills.

    “Shoot. I’m glad he’s not playing for New England, I guess, but he’s a great player. He didn’t disappoint today.”

    He discussed the Raiders running back corps, specifically rookie running back Jalen Richard.

    “He made a couple guys miss, I know that. All of those backs are capable backs, there’s no question. I know he had a couple real nice runs where he made some guys miss.”

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Man that’s some high praise..
    I don’t even know why we argue over who is MVP
    The RAIDERS are the BEST product on TV
    And on and on.. The Herd loves him some RAIDERS!!

  • CARR SHOW (baby Al)
  • idahoraiderfan33

    It’s kind of pick your poison, lol
    We tried EVERYTHING!!

  • idahoraiderfan33

    And to think we have Washington on the bench due to lack of defensive body’s..
    Or Washington would of broke some as well

  • rifflicks

    or…..Richard is clearly better in the eyes of the coaches, and with nearly identical skill-sets having them both active is redundant

  • rifflicks

    what makes you think either one of them is in game condition?
    do you really think the coaching staff would activate a player incapable of playing the whole game effectively?

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Richard is impressive.. Runs with power and just all around good player.. He’s quickly becoming one of the better KR/PR in the league as well..

  • rifflicks

    thanks captain

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Im thinking for down the road.. Maybe our last 2 games and beyond.. None of the two would help us for KC that’s for sure

  • idahoraiderfan33

    It’s crazy to hear what other players have to say about the RAIDERS after they play them..

    I want to hear KC players say that!!

  • idahoraiderfan33

    You think it was a good move by Trump landing Mad Dog Mattis

  • diff

    Rotoworld says MEJ designated as player to return and practiced. Yes

  • diff

    But says Joseph in walking boot.

  • rifflicks

    wassup TOUGH Guy?

  • rifflicks

    only if he cleared it with Putin first…..Right?

  • rifflicks

    rivals…..ain’t gonna happen

  • idahoraiderfan33

    They friends dude.. But Trump is starting to smack talk China pretty good, and China ain’t liking it.. Enter Mad Dog Mattis.. I have been reading about him, dude is pretty much a badazz

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Really?? Now that’s some good news!!

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Oh, and Diff got the scoop on Carr Show.. Whats up with that

  • idahoraiderfan33

    Now this is bad news!!

  • rifflicks

    just as many pics of HillHag with Putin as there were Trump but that doesn’t seem to bother you…..including a deal for the Russians to corner uranium market when she was Sec of State
