Coming off a loss to the Colts on the road in Week 1, the Oakland Raiders will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in their home opener on Sunday afternoon. You can participate right here on our live game thread while watching or listening to the game.

Head coach Dennis Allen said that there are no moral victories, but after the way the Raiders nearly upset Indianapolis on the road, they have to be bringing some confidence along with them back home.

All eyes will be on quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who threw for 217 yards and rushed for 112 more last Sunday. Meanwhile, Darren McFadden will be looking to improve upon his not-so-impressive performance in Week 1, as he ran the ball 17 times for 48 yards.

The Raiders are favored this afternoon for what may be the only time this season, facing a Jaguars squad that is missing its starting quarterback and mustered a meager two points last week.

    Raiders are owning the line of scrimmage

    Looks much better than he did last week. Although, he doesn’t have to line up with Reggie Wayne..

  • Danny Saeed

    Raiders just called a timeout because they were unable to get the right people on the field for the punt return. Not good.

  • Brian Banifatemi

    Raiders’ safety Tyvon Branch is out for the remainder of the game with a leg injury, Pretty big blow to the Raiders defense that has been playing solid thus far.

  • Danny Saeed

    3rd and 6. Pryor fumbles the snap. Recovers.. Raiders punt.

  • Danny Saeed

    58 yard punt by King

  • Danny Saeed

    Mike Jenkins slow to get up.

  • Danny Saeed

    Lamarr Houston needs to make that tackle!

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    The Raiders should use Marcel Reese more..
    He adds another dimension to the offense

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    The Raiders have to do better on third down defense.

  • Danny Saeed

    Woodson slow to get up..

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    Woodson is okay. Sigh of relief for the Raiders.

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    What a tackle by Woodson.

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    Pryor is scaring me

  • Danny Saeed

    Me too.. that was a SKETCHY drive. Ford was the hero there. If Pryor put that ball up more on the incomplete Pass to Butler, that’s a Raiders score.

  • Samuel Charles

    i think Pryor might need a blood transfusion

  • Danny Saeed

    Well, the A’s swept TX. Good news.

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    How many times this year will Janikowski not kick the ball out of the endzone?

    • Samuel Charles

      it only counts as a touchback for Seabass when he kicks it thru the uprights

    At least the defense looks good

      Jags currently have 124 total yards

  • goldenbaysports

    Is this just the Raiders beating a bad team? Or is it a sign for good things to come this season?

  • Samuel Charles

    neither

    its Terrelle Pryor’s first victory as a starter!!!!

  • Brian Banifatemi

    Jenkins would have taken that to the house if he picked it off. He still seemed excited about the play though, and rightfully so.

  • Brian Banifatemi

    Usama Young sacks Chad Henne on the safety blitz! Raiders pass rush is looking solid through the first two games.

  • Samuel Charles

    either way,

    DMac’s gotta know he can’t cough up the ball right now, that’s the only thing that keeps the Jags in the game..

    • Brian Banifatemi

      Agreed, but that was one hell of a run… He reversed direction and everything

  • Brian Banifatemi

    D.J. Hayden has played some beautiful coverage this afternoon.

    Huge stop for the Raiders on the Jaguars 2-point conversion attempt. Here comes Jacksonville with an onside kick…

  • Samuel Charles

    thank god they missed the 2… that was all on DMC

    ball security is more important than yards right now..

  • Brian Banifatemi

    Rod Streater recovers the Jaguars’ onside kick. Time for Oakland to chew out the clock.

  • Lorenzo Siemann

    Now the Raiders just need to run down the clock
