Barring a sudden turnaround Oakland is headed Antworten

ALAMEDA Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders will not get the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s draft if quarterback Derek Carr has any say in it.For the 15th time in the last 16 seasons, the Raiders will finish no better than .500, and that’s if they run the table over the final six weeks.for another top five pick in the draft. The Raiders are tied with the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals for the worst record in the NFL at 2-8. Based on strength of schedule, the 49ers own the top overall pick followed by the Cardinals and the Raiders.Oakland held the No. 1 spot until beating Arizona last week to snap a five-game losing streak.Carr is determined to keep the Raiders out of that position again.“I want to mess up the draft,” Carr said Wednesday. “I don’t want the first pick. I want to win all these games. I want everybody to be mad at me for that. That’s what I want to accomplish.”Since the merger in 1970 the Raiders have had the first overall pick one other time — in 2007 when they drafted quarterback JaMarcus Russell. Russell lasted just three seasons and is widely considered one of the biggest busts in NFL history.The Raiders had high hopes when the year began, with both owner Mark Davis and coach Jon Gruden talking hopefully of a Super Bowl before the team relocates to Las Vegas for the 2020 season.Those plans were derailed early when the team lost nine of its first 10 games. With the focus now on the future, the Raiders are hopeful of getting better through the draft.Through a series of trades that sent Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears and Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys, they have three first-round picks in 2019 and two more in 2020.Carr, the 36th overall pick in 2014, has repeatedly brushed aside talk of the Raiders tanking in order to get the No. 1 pick and said it’s more important for the team to establish a winning tone.“For us as an offense it’s really just building continuity,” Carr said “We’ve got a lot of young guys playing. We’ve got a lot of new guys playing. Everyone sees what’s going on, what we’re having to deal with but why not just go out and win some games? That would be so cool for this group to be able to hold onto.”Carr will have to do some more adjusting to make that happen.With wide receivers Jordy Nelson (knee) and Martavis Bryant (PCL) questionable, the Raiders signed Keon Hatcher off Green Bay’s practice squad. Hatcher was on Oakland’s 53-man roster coming out of training camp before being waived to make room for Bryant.The Raiders also lost Brandon LaFell to an Achilles injury suffered against the Cardinals. LaFell was placed on injured reserve this week.“Love Keon Bo Jackson Jersey ,” Carr said. “He’s so competitive. That’s the moral of the story with the guys coach keeps around. They’re super competitive.You’re going to see him do the dirty work.”Notes: Wide receiver Johnny Holton was activated from the practice squad. Holton had been taking reps as a defensive back after beginning the season at receiver. With Oakland’s injury issues at the position, Holton was switched back to offense. . Nose tackle Justin Ellis returned to practice for the first time since suffering a foot injury in Week 1. Ellis is the team’s best run defender but Gruden declined to say whether he would be activated this week. . Wide receiver Saeed Blacknall and cornerback Arrion Springs were signed to the practice squad. DENVER (AP) — Ugly wins are a thing of beauty in Denver, where the Broncos learned all their hard lessons last year in the dreariness of defeat.“We’re sitting here 2-0 but we’re struggling,” Emmanuel Sanders after the Broncos eked out a 20-19 win over Oakland on Sunday on Brandon McManus‘ 36-yard field goal with 6 seconds left.It was their only lead on a sweltering afternoon in which the temperature at kickoff was a record 92 degrees.The Broncos, who overcame a 12-point second-half deficit, hadn’t opened a season with back-to-back fourth-quarter comebacks since 2007. Last week, they rallied past Seattle 27-24 in Case Keenum’s Denver debut.“It does feel good to win the hard-fought games,” Sanders said. “But I can’t wait until we can win one of those smooth games. But we’re going to keep pushing. I’m going to wake up in the morning and stretch my arms and go, ‘Ahh. It feels good to be 2-0.'”Especially after going 5-11 last year.It was for times like these that Broncos general manager John Elway ditched his stopwatch drafts in April in favor of players who had been captains in college and left school with degrees in hand.“One thing we learned last year when you’re 5-11 and you’re in a losing streak, you need that maturity and that leadership to get things turned around,” Elway said last spring.Royce Freeman scored on a 1-yard run and fellow rookies Bradley Chubb and Josey Jewell had key stops, but the biggest contributions came from Tim Patrick, a receiver who spent his rookie season on Denver’s practice squad in 2017 , and undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay, a hometown hero who starred at the University of Colorado.Patrick’s first NFL catch was a doozy: an 18-yarder that set up the winning field goal . And all Lindsay did was make history Sunday.He became the first undrafted player in league history to top 100 yards from scrimmage in his first two games. He followed a 103-yard debut with a 111-yard performance that included 14 rushes for 107 yards.Other takeaways from the game, which marked the 350th win in Broncos owner Pat Bowlen’s tenure:CARR REVVS UP: Derek Carr was on target all afternoon, completing 29 of 32 passes for 288 yards and a touchdown. His 90.6 completion percentage is the best mark in franchise history — with a minimum of 20 attempts — topping the record of 89.5 set by Rich Gannon on Nov. 11, 2002, in Denver.“He was great. Very accurate in getting us the ball. Made a lot of plays,” said receiver Amari Cooper, who caught 10 passes for 116 yards four days after coach Jon Gruden gave Carr grief for not finding Cooper more in Week 1.MILLER MAGICThe Raiders protected rookie left tackle Kolton Miller by having Carr get rid of the ball quick, keeping Von Miller to one sack a week after he destroyed Seattle’s game plan with four quarterback hits, three sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.Miller’s day could have been very similar to the Seahawks game had teammate Todd Davis not been whistled for a holding call that negated Miller’s strip sack and Domata Peko’s fumble recovery at the Oakland 20-yard line in the first half.“I had Derek Carr, it was one of the few plays that he held the ball,” said Miller Womens Derek Carr Jersey , who later had a sack that counted. “I was able to get in and get the sack. And the forced fumble. And we recovered it. But we had to go back out because Todd was doing the Viennese waltz with whoever it was out there.”SEEING REDRookie Courtland Sutton had a 42-yard catch overturned after Gruden threw his red challenge flag. He also thought he had come down with a 21-yard TD catch, but Broncos coach Vance Joseph lost his challenge when the officials confirmed Sutton’s left foot slipped out of bounds just before his right knee hit inbounds.So, Sutton finished with a single catch for 9 yards.“I don’t know. I thought Courtland’s touchdown was a touchdown,” Joseph said. “Obviously, I challenged it. The second catch, I guess he didn’t finish the catch. We’ll figure it out. It’s a tough game to officiate. There are so many rules right now and hopefully it’s fair on both sides.”BLOCKED KICKOne of the few things that went right for Denver in a dismal first half was Shaq Barrett’s block of Mike Nugent’s extra point, leaving the Raiders ahead 12-0 at the half.“Who knew that would be huge?” Keenum asked.Barrett did, that’s who.“Coaches always say you never know what play can end up being a game-winning play,” Barrett said. “That’s why you’ve just got to play every play like that. When I’m out there, that’s what I’m trying to do.”
