This is ridiculous...I'm in Texas and Houston is my regional action today since Dallas played last night. There is no excuse for it not getting televised here especially since the game is in California.

It seems you were not able to see the game. Bay Area fans were also blacked-out. Fitting, the Raiders played their best game of the season. If they are on primetime they do not play very well. If they are blacked out, they play well.

I paid $354 for two tickets to watch a game that wasn't half as good as my grandson's high school games.
The Raiders aren't beat by the other teams skills thety are beat by their own lack of discipline and professionalism... There is no damn reason for all the stupid dumb assed penalities.
Jamarcus Russel is an oxygen thief and waste of time and effort. 300 lb quarterback that is not good enough for the pros. He may had been good enough in the swamps but that is not the NFL.
#2 is just what his playing is.

Thats all fine and dandy, but the only stats that count are the win stats. The Raiders are loosers by the numbers! That is the bottom line!

4 and 11 is not impressive in anyone's book. I'll start going back to Raiders game when they start playing like professionals again. When a bunch of highly paid and skilled players loose because of stupid penalties or a quarterback doesn't care enough to win to get into shape and learn to throw a football with even elementary accuracy.

OK Bronco fan! What a bunch of ignorant remarks. Jruss is in shape, unless he put on 30lbs since last Sunday's news conference. And I am glad you know him, the play calling from the sidelines, the O-Lines play and the WR's play so well that you know it is the QB that doesn't care enough. And considering all the crap that has gone on we have had the guys acting more professinol than most teams. We aren't getting arrested like the Bengals...we don't have fools running there mouths like TO...so I am not sure where the professinolism is that we are lacking....Go root for the Broncos as we don't need fair weather fans anyways. Raider Nation bleeds silver and black!

8 straight days of football
Sunday the 28th it begins.
Four or five NFL games per city are nationally televised and at least half of them have incredible playoff implications.
Then, it's bowl mania...
Monday's most interesting game is the Alamo Bowl, which is a stretch. Mizzou has to redeem themselves against Northwestern, blah
But from there it gets better and better
Holiday, Chikfila, Gator and Rose, Cotton and Sugar through the new year.
Then next weekend you got the NFL playoffs, two games each day, followed by the Fiesta Bowl.

then wait three days and see the BCS game in 3D
