Raiders DE Justin Tuck: Expect A Bloodbath Against 49ers The Oakland Raiders found the perfect tonic for the team’s most lopsided loss in more than a half-century: the schedule. Instead of spending Monday dwelling on a 52-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams, the Raiders […]

Opponent Profile: 49ers Face Must Win Against Cross Town Rival Raiders The 49ers travel to Oakland this week to take on the Oakland Raiders. This game means everything to the 49ers and nothing to the Raiders who will only look to ruin San Francisco's season as well.

Top 5 Memorable Regular Season Matchups Between Raiders, 49ers The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders head into a rare regular season matchup Sunday at O.Co Coliseum with two very different outlooks, at least for their fan bases.

Raiders try to move on from lopsided loss ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders found the perfect tonic for the team's most lopsided loss in more than a half-century: the schedule. Instead of spending Monday dwelling on a 52-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams, the Raiders have already turned their attention to this week's ...

Team Grades: Raiders Get A Big Fat ‘Fail’ In St. Louis The 2014 Oakland Raiders had nothing on the field Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, as the Silver & Black couldn't follow up their first win of the season with anything positive. The 52-0 loss in Week 13 was as bad as it gets in the modern-day NFL.

Raiders-Rams fantasy projections, Week 13: Tre Mason, Derek Carr, Kenny Britt among the names to watch The Week 13 matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the St. Louis Rams features an emerging running back that could make a big impact on Sunday. Rookie running back Latavius Murray will be out this week, having failed to clear the NFL's concussion protocol. After an explosive performance against the Kansas City Chiefs, he will be replaced in the lineup by Darren McFadden.

Oakland Raiders vs. St. Louis Rams: Full Report Card Grades for Oakland Bad. Ugly. Pathetic. Embarrassing. Pick any negative term you want to describe the performance of the Oakland Raiders Sunday, and you'll be right. There's really no other way to describe how they played in a 52-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams . A team almost has to try to play this poorly for four quarters. There isn't a single thing in this game that went well for Oakland. There's not one positive ...

Rapid Reaction: Oakland Raiders A few thoughts on the Oakland Raiders' 52-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday: What does it mean: The Raiders seemed eager to build off their first -- and so far, only -- win and had hoped to create some late-season momentum. Instead, they came out, got punched in the mouth and never got off the mat. This one was ugly in every facet, and that’s putting it lightly. This is the second-worst ...

Oakland Raiders vs. St. Louis Rams: Full Report Card Grades for St. Louis The St. Louis Rams (5-7) clobbered the Oakland Raiders (1-11) by a score of 52-0 in what was by far St. Louis' most dominant and promising performance of the 2014 season.  The Rams came out of the gates firing, and the Raiders just stood by helpless. St. Louis scored three first-quarter touchdowns and held Oakland to three-and-outs on its first three drives.  St. Louis extended that commanding ...

Raiders suffer 2nd-worst defeat in franchise history The Oakland Raiders were historically inept. And they'd thought they had some momentum coming into Sunday's game.

Dave Casper
 David John Casper

Nicknamed "The Ghost" by his teammates, Hall of Fame tight end Dave Casper earned his first starting assignment with the Raiders in 1976. He burst onto the NFL scene with an impressive 53 catches for 691 yards and 10 touchdowns, while spring boarded himself into the limelight as one of the game's best tight ends.

He caught 378 passes and scored 52 touchdowns during his career, which began with the Raiders in Oakland in 1974 and included stints with the Oilers and Minnesota Vikings before concluding with the Raiders in Los Angeles in 1984. He was selected to play in five Pro Bowls, and was named All-Pro and All-AFC four consecutive years.

Casper was also involved in "The Holy Roller", one NFL history's strangest plays. The Raiders were trailing the San Diego Chargers with 10 seconds remaining. Quarterback Ken Stabler fumbled the ball forward 13 yards before running back Pete Banaszak swatted it toward the end zone. The ball glanced off Casper's foot at the five yard line and he chased it into the the end zone, falling on it for the game-winning touchdown.

A new rule was spawned by the play, making it illegal to advance the ball in such a manner.
