Oakland Raiders vs. KC Chiefs things to watch for, and why's this game not sold out yet?
The catalyst for setting up that play was Phil Dawson, of course, since he was the guy kicking it. It looked like the original intention was for Joshua Cribbs to dive and catch the ball just as it went ten yards, meaning that timing was 100% critical for it to work. I thought it deflected off Cribbs, but upon replay, he just barely missed it.
Looking at the final score, I'm still amazed that the Browns were in great position to tie this game and force overtime. That was made possible by Hue Jackson's erroneous decision to not kick a field goal to give his team a late three possession lead, but sometimes coaches just have too much faith in their ability to execute that one fourth down play.
Week 6 The Oakland Raiders beat the Cleveland Browns, 24-17, this past Sunday. The Raiders ended the day with 151 yards of rushing, their 5th game this season of 100 yards or more in a...
Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders was a letdown to Cleveland Browns fans who were hoping for an improved version of a team that was just coming off of a bye week, but wide receiver Greg Little was definitely a bright spot in the game and therefore gets this week's game ball.
No, we gained seven yards on the first play and then we had three incompletes. We had plenty of time in the huddle to get plays called.
Shortly after that, Cabot and the rest of the media announced that it was due to a hamstring injury. Hillis did re-enter the game in the fourth quarter, but he explained why everything happened the way it did on Sunday.
Early on, it looked like the Oakland Raiders would dominate this game with how well Darren McFadden was running the football. The Raiders took up nearly 8:00 of clock on their first offensive drive, converting several third downs along the way before McFadden marched into the end zone for the game's first touchdown
It's the fourth quarter, and the Browns are down big time to the Raiders now by a score of 24-7. Running back Peyton Hillis must be in the doghouse big time, and it's really ticking most fans off. Can Cleveland still rebound and make the final score "respectable?" Either way, Pat Shurmur is going to get a lot of heat after this one.
The Cleveland Browns are losing by a score of 14-7 in the first half, and it has certainly been a weird mix of things we have seen. I like that I've seen Evan Moore a few more times and Greg Little is getting open, but Peyton Hillis is most certainly not getting the bulk of the carries or snaps.
