Oakland Raiderettes Photos from Week 11

The Oakland Raiders are a borderline playoff team this year and their contest against the Cincinnati Bengals seemed to be a mismatch on paper as the Bengals are arguably the worst team in the NFL.  But the Bengals put up a good fight, which was surprising given the fact they were starting an unproven quarterback in Ryan Finley.  He had a horrible game, but the Bengals kept it close succumbing to the Raiders, 17 – 10.

Strange days indeed.

Let’s move on and take another look at Football’s Fabulous Females, the Oakland Raiderettes.  Click here to view the latest Raiderettes images from Week 11.

Oakland Raiderettes Photos from Week 9

It’s been a while since we’ve last seen the Raiderettes at home and that’s because the Oakland Raiders have just returned from a five week sojourn that took them to Minneapolis, Indianapolis, London, Green Bay and Houston.  The team returned home to Oakland to play the visiting Detroit Lions in Week 9 and it was another chance to view the Raiderettes in the Oakland Coliseum before they relocate to Las Vegas next season.  Oakland fans should savor each and every one of these few remaining home games in the Bay Area because when they are gone, it will be an end of an era.

Each year, the NFL schedules regular season games in London.  It is a way to build the brand internationally, as if the NFL needed the additional publicity.  Usually these games are, to put it politely, not the most attractive or important games, but there was some added excitement in the match up between the Chicago Bears and the Oakland Raiders.  It would be a match up between all world, all stud, all everything defensive player Khalil Mack and his former team, the Oakland Raiders.

For people who don’t know the backstory, last season the Raiders decided against retaining the services of the best defensive player in the game and traded his rights to the Chicago Bears, who promptly made him one of the highest paid players in the NFL.  And Khalil Mack has proven to be worth every penny as he transformed the Bears defense into the second coming of the Monsters of the Midway.

On paper, the match up between the Bears defense and the Raiders offense, still reeling from Antonio Brown fiasco, seemed like a mismatch, but Raiders held their own and proceeded to eek out a 24 – 21 hard earned victory.

If these international series games are a treat for international fans, well then a glimpse of the Oakland Raiderettes is a nice compliment to the spectacle on the pitch.  Click here to view the Raiders game day gallery of images from London.

The Oakland Raiders played the Kansas City Chiefs tough for about a quarter and a half before giving up four second quarter touchdowns to the presumptive AFC West Champions.  Final score, Chiefs – 28, Raiders – 10. 

A valiant effort, but for naught.  So let us turn our attention to something more positive…the Oakland Raiderettes!  Click here to view the Raiders gallery of images from Week 2.
