Las Vegas Raiders Raiders finish NFL season with wild win vs. Broncos RSN. via RSN;. The latest NFL news and rumors New month, new year, more Raiders news. January 1 (Happy New Year) p.m.: Guard Gabe Jackson was voted the Raiders’ winner of the Ed Block Courage award.
In an effort to bolster their offense, in early the Raiders acquired Pro Bowl wide receiver Randy Moss via trade with the Minnesota Vikings , and signed free agent running back Lamont Jordan of the New York Jets.
After a 4—12 season and a second consecutive last place finish, Turner was fired as head coach. On February 11, , the team announced the return of Art Shell as head coach.
In announcing the move, Al Davis said that firing Shell in had been a mistake. Despite having one of the best defenses, Oakland's offense struggled greatly, scoring just points fewest in franchise history and allowing a league-high 72 sacks.
Wide receiver Jerry Porter was benched by Shell for most of the season in what many viewed as a personal, rather than football-related, decision.
Shell was fired again at the end of the season. On January 22, , the team announced the hiring of year-old USC offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin , the youngest coach in franchise history and the youngest coach in the NFL.
Russell, arguably the biggest bust in NFL history, held out until September 12  and did not make his first career start until week After a 1—3 start to and months of speculation and rumors, Davis fired Kiffin on September Tom Cable was named as Kiffin's interim replacement, and subsequently signed as the 17th head coach of the Raiders on February 3, The team's finish to the season would turn out to match their best since they lost the Super Bowl in the season.
However, they still finished 5—11 and ended up third in the AFC West, the first time they did not finish last since They would produce an identical record in ; however, the season was somewhat ameliorated by the fact that four of the Raiders' five wins were against opponents with above.
In the Raiders became the first team in NFL history to go undefeated against their division yet miss the playoffs 6—0 in the AFC West, 8—8 overall, 3 games behind the Jets for the second Wild Card entry.
On January 4, , owner Al Davis informed head coach Tom Cable that his contract would not be renewed, ending his tenure with the organization.
Many Raider players, such as punter Shane Lechler, were upset with the decision. On January 17, , it was announced that offensive coordinator Hue Jackson was going to be the next Raiders head coach.
A press conference was held on January 18, , to formally introduce Jackson as the next Raiders head coach, the fifth in just seven years.
Following Davis's death during the season , new owners Carol and Mark Davis decided to take the franchise in a drastically different direction by hiring a general manager.
On New Year's Day of , the Raiders played the San Diego Chargers , hoping to go to the playoffs for the first time since , the game ended with a 38—26 loss.
Their season ended with another disappointing 8—8 record. The Raiders named Green Bay Packers director of football operations Reggie McKenzie as the team's first general manager since Al Davis on January 6, The Raiders began by running a nose tackle when they run a defense.
They lost their home opener on Monday Night Football against San Diego 22—14, and finished the season 4— In the off-season, the Raiders began making major roster moves.
These included the signing of linebackers Kevin Burnett , Nick Roach , and Kaluka Maiava , defensive tackles Pat Sims and Vance Walker , cornerbacks Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins , defensive end Jason Hunter , and safety Usama Young and the release of wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey , safety Michael Huff , linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly.
Shortly before, they had traded a fifth-round pick and an undisclosed conditional pick in exchange for Matt Flynn. In the NFL Draft , the Raiders selected linebacker Khalil Mack in the first round and quarterback Derek Carr in the second round hoping each would anchor their side of the ball.
Carr was given control early as he was chosen as the starter for the opener of the season. After an 0—4 start to the season , and an 8—28 overall record as head coach, Allen was fired.
The Raiders finished the season with a record of 3— Carr started all 16 games for the Raiders, the first Raider since to do so.
First round pick Mack finished third in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting. Jack Del Rio was hired to become the new head coach of the Raiders on January 14, , replacing the fired Dennis Allen who coincidentally had preceded him as the Broncos defensive coordinator and interim head coach Tony Sparano.
The Raiders showed great improvement in Del Rio's first season, improving upon their three-win season, going 7—9 in the season. Rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper fulfilled almost all expectations and Derek Carr continued his improvement at quarterback.
Cooper, Mack, Murray, and Carr were selected to participate in the Pro Bowl. DE Khalil Mack was the first player ever to be selected as an AP All-Pro Team at two positions in the same year.
The day following the conclusion of the regular season, the Raiders, St. Louis Rams , and San Diego Chargers all filed to relocate to Los Angeles.
The Chargers were given a one-year approval to relocate as well, conditioned on negotiating a lease agreement with the Rams or an agreement to partner with the Rams on the new stadium construction.
The Raiders were given conditional permission to relocate if the Chargers were to decline their option first. The Chargers eventually announced on January 12, , that they would exercise their option to relocate to Los Angeles following the failure of a November ballot initiative to fund a new stadium in San Diego.
By mid-February , the team had worked out a one-year lease agreement with the City of Oakland to play at O. In late January billionaire Sheldon Adelson , president and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation casino empire, proposed a new domed stadium in Las Vegas to potentially house the University of Nevada, Las Vegas football team and a possible NFL team.
Adelson quickly reached out to the Raiders to discuss the team partnering on the new stadium. A group of investors led by former NFL stars Ronnie Lott and Rodney Peete proposed a new stadium to the city of Oakland in June as a way to keep the Raiders in the city.
On November 28, , the Raiders secured their first winning season since with a comeback win against the Carolina Panthers , and on December 18, the team clinched their first postseason berth since with a victory over the San Diego Chargers.
On December 20, , the NFL announced that the Raiders would have seven Pro Bowl selections: Khalil Mack , Derek Carr , Amari Cooper , Donald Penn , Kelechi Osemele , Rodney Hudson and Reggie Nelson.
This was the most selections for the team since , and the most for any team in the NFL season. As the fifth seed in the AFC in the NFL playoffs , the Raiders faced the Houston Texans in the opening Wild Card round.
With significant injuries hampering the team, including the loss of starting quarterback Carr in the second to last regular season game, they lost to the Texans 27— The Raiders filed paperwork with the NFL on January 19, , to relocate the club from Oakland to Las Vegas , Nevada by the season.
Subsequently, the team announced that it would continue to be known as the Oakland Raiders for the and NFL seasons and play its games in Oakland for at least those two seasons.
After winning the first two games of the season, the Raiders lost four straight and six of their next eight leaving them two games below.
They would win their next two games, but lose their final four games, ending the season a disappointing 6— On December 31, , following a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17, head coach Del Rio was fired by Mark Davis after being granted a four-year contract extension prior to the season.
On January 6, , the team announced the return of Jon Gruden as head coach. During the season the Raiders fired general manager Reggie McKenzie , replacing him with NFL Network 's draft expert Mike Mayock for the season.
The Raiders finished 4—12 and in last place in the AFC West for the first time since The next year, in what would be the last season of the team's second tenure in Oakland, the team posted a three-game turnaround with a 7—9 record.
On January 22, , it was announced that the Raiders had relocated to Las Vegas. The Raiders finished the season with a 13—1—0 record and won the AFL Championship.
They subsequently lost to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl II. The Raiders have won a total of 3 Super Bowl championships. They won their first Super Bowl under John Madden , and their next two with Tom Flores.
When the team was founded in , the Oakland Tribune held a name-the-team contest. The new owners had their newly minted Raiders logo, a pirate wearing a football helmet with an eye patch on a gold football background with two white swords in black trim with gold handles crossed behind the football.
The original Raiders uniforms were black and gold with Gothic numerals , while the helmets were black with a white stripe and no logo. The team wore this design from to In a very rare move, the jerseys displayed the player's full name on the back, before being pared down to only the surname in When Al Davis became head coach and general manager in , he changed the team's color scheme to silver and black, and added a logo to the helmet.
This logo is a shield that consists of the word "RAIDERS" at the top, two crossed cutlasses with handles up and cutting edge down, and superimposed head of a Raider wearing a football helmet and a black eye patch covering his right eye.
Over the years, it has undergone minor color modifications such as changing the background from silver to black in , but it has essentially remained the same.
The Raiders' current silver and black uniform design has essentially remained the same since it debuted in The black jerseys have silver lettering names and numbers, while the white jerseys have black lettering names and numbers with silver outlining the numbers only.
Originally, the white jerseys had black letters for the names and silver numbers with a thick black outline, but they were changed to black with a silver outline for the season.
In , the team used silver numerals with black outline and black lettering names for the season. However, in , the team again displayed black numerals and have stayed that way ever since with the exception of the season as part of the NFL's 75th Anniversary where they donned the helmets with the silver away numbers and black lettering names.
The Raiders wore their white jerseys at home for the first time in their history on September 28, against the San Diego Chargers.
The decision was made by Lane Kiffin, who was coaching his final game for the Raiders, and was purportedly due to intense heat. For the season, the Raiders took part in the AFL Legacy Program and wore s throwback jerseys for games against other teams from the former AFL.
In the and seasons, the team wore black cleats as a tribute to Al Davis. However, the team reverted to white cleats in In the season, the Raiders brought back their classic white jerseys with silver numerals as part of the NFL Color Rush initiative.
Starting in , the Raiders retired the white pants but kept the throwback white jerseys, wearing them along with silver pants and black socks in a style reminiscent of the road set.
No changes to uniforms or logos were made during the team's move to Las Vegas, aside from changing "OAKLAND" to "LAS VEGAS" on various wordmark logos.

The Raiders shared the Coliseum with the Oakland Athletics once the A's moved to Oakland from Kansas City in , except for the years the Raiders called Los Angeles home — The Raiders defeated and lost to all 31 other NFL teams at the Coliseum at least once.
The Raiders did play one regular season game at California Memorial Stadium in Berkeley. On September 23, they played the Miami Dolphins in Berkeley due to a scheduling conflict with the Athletics.
The team defeated the Dolphins 12—7, ending Miami's winning streak. During the Los Angeles years, the Raiders played in the 93,seat Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
From the assumption of the team by Mark Davis in , the Raiders had been subject to rampant relocation speculation as the team attempted to find a new stadium in Oakland or elsewhere, due to the age of Oakland Alameda Coliseum , being secondary tenants to Major League Baseball 's Athletics , and the expiration of the team's lease at the end of After looking into a variety of options in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and elsewhere the team ultimately relocated to the Las Vegas area in where Allegiant Stadium was finishing construction.
The Raiders share the 65, seat stadium with the UNLV Rebels football program. Al Davis coined slogans such as "Pride and Poise", "Commitment to Excellence", and "Just Win, Baby"—all of which are registered trademarks of the team.
The nickname Raider Nation refers to the die hard fans of the team spread throughout the United States and the world.
The Raider Nation is also known for the Black Hole, originally a specific area of the Coliseum sections — frequented by the team's rowdiest and most fervent fans from until Al Davis created the phrase Raider Nation in In September Ice Cube recorded a song for the Raiders named "Raider Nation".

The outlook for the team improved, but it was not apparent after they opened by suffering a 38—13 rout in Tennessee.
Returning to Oakland, the Raiders defeated St. Louis and then lost a 21—20 game in Arizona. After a home loss to Houston, they beat their division rival Chargers 35—27 for the first time in seven years, and then lost the "Battle of the Bay" to San Francisco.
The Week 7 game in Denver set records as the Raiders crushed their division rival with eight touchdowns two passing, five rushing, and one interception return , setting a score of 59—14 for the most points in franchise history.
After beating Seattle 33—3 and then Kansas City 23—20 for a third straight win, the Raiders went into their bye week with a winning 5—4 record. However, after the bye week, the Raiders fell to Pittsburgh and Miami before beating San Diego and losing to the Jaguars.
A home win over Denver in Week 15 saw the team approach a playoff spot, but faltered in a loss to the Colts which ensured that they would miss the postseason for the 8th straight year.
By beating Kansas City in Week 17, the Raiders became the first team in NFL history to sweep their division and still not make the playoffs.
Despite beginning to turn the team around, Tom Cable was fired by Al Davis soon after the season ended for remarking "I finally began to feel that we weren't losers.
The physically frail, but still sharp Davis explained his decision to fire Cable by saying "If. During all this time, Al Davis, who was now past his 80th birthday and in increasingly poor health, refused to hire a general manager or relinquish his absolute control of the team's on-field activities and he continued to make all major decisions regarding draft picks, trades, or signings himself.
He came under fire both for this and for strategies that were out-of-step with the contemporary NFL, in particular, his attempt to recreate the vertical game used by Daryl Lamonica and Jim Plunkett.
Jamarcus Russell was drafted due to Davis's assumption that he had the proper physical traits needed for this style of play. The signing of Randy Moss in also proved a costly mistake that consumed large portions of salary cap space.
The Raiders' biggest off-season moves were trading QB Bruce Gradkowski to Cincinnati and CB Nnamdi Asomugha to Philadelphia. With their new coach in place, the team opened in Denver for their first prime-time appearance in three years.
On a rain-slicked Monday night, Oakland won an extremely sloppy game 23—20 after repeated penalties and Broncos mistakes. Kicker Sebastian Janikowski also booted a yard field goal for only the third time in NFL history.
In Week 2, the Raiders lost a wild shootout match in Buffalo 38—35, beat the Jets 34—24, and then lost to New England 31—19 for a 2—2 start. After flying to Houston for a match with the Texans, the Raiders were stunned by the news that Al Davis had died at his home on October 8 after having been with the franchise for all but its first three years of existence.
With Al Davis's passing, Hue Jackson was effectively in charge of all on-field decisions and he finally convinced Bengals owner Mike Brown to give up Palmer in exchange for all of Oakland's first-round draft picks.
The deal thus having been made, Palmer stood under center as the Raiders hosted Kansas City in Week 7. But the team lost as Kyle Boller threw three interceptions to open the game while Palmer replaced him early in the second half.
However, he also threw three interceptions, losing 28—0. With the AFC West extremely weak, the Raiders vacillated between 3rd and 1st place as the season progressed.
A three-game losing streak in December badly harmed their playoff chances, but up to Week 17, they remained in contention to clinch the division.
However, the Raiders lost a must-win game at home to San Diego and so for the ninth year in a row failed to make the playoffs or produce a winning record.
Despite rumors of selling the team, Al Davis's family indicated that they would retain ownership. At the conclusion of the season, Hue Jackson was fired and replaced by former Broncos DC Dennis Allen , the first defensive-minded Raiders head coach since John Madden.
At Davis's death, the once-elite franchise was a mess, with one of the NFL's oldest rosters, almost no salary cap space, and valuable first-round draft picks squandered on bust players and Carson Palmer.
Surveys of players across the league consistently showed that the Raiders had become one of the least desirable teams to play for. In addition, with the Miami Marlins obtaining their own ballpark in , the Raiders became the last team in the NFL to still share a stadium with a baseball franchise.
The outdated, deteriorating Oakland Coliseum, which also occupied a high crime neighborhood, was a further impediment. The Raiders began by losing a very poorly executed home opener on Monday Night Football to San Diego 22— The team was plagued by fumbles and dropped passes, and did not score a touchdown until near the end.
On the bright side, defensive performance was decent and helped contain the Chargers' passing game. After another miserable loss in Miami, the Raiders returned home to take on Pittsburgh in Week 3.
In the 4th quarter, trailing by 10, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey collided with Pittsburgh safety Ryan Mundy and was knocked out of the game. The loss of Heyward-Bey inspired the rest of the team, which rallied to tie the game , and with 4 seconds left, Sebastian Janikowski kicked a yard field goal to win the game 34— In the end though, the Raiders finished the season During , there was little apparent sign of improvement as the Raiders once again finished , including a particularly embarrassing loss to the Eagles in Week 9 when QB Nick Foles threw a record seven TD passes.
In Week 15, they gave up 56 points to the Chiefs. In , Dennis Allen was fired after a 0—4 start and replaced by former Dolphins head coach and then-Raiders offensive line coach Tony Sparano for the remainder of the season.
They became the first team to be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention and were guaranteed a fourth-place finish in the AFC West after a loss in Week 11 dropped them to 0— The Raiders were the last team in the league that year to win a game, finally doing so the next week against their division rival, the Kansas City Chiefs, but they were crushed 52—0 by the Rams the next week.
The Raiders did manage to defeat their geographic rival, the San Francisco 49ers, and defeated Buffalo in Week 16, which mathematically eliminated the Bills from playoff contention for the 15th straight year.
Oakland's final record that season was 3— Their offense struggled mightily, averaging just Also, linebacker Khalil Mack , selected in the first round, had 75 tackles and 4 sacks.
On January 14, , Jack Del Rio , the then- Denver Broncos defensive coordinator and former Jacksonville Jaguars head coach, was hired by the Oakland Raiders to be their new head coach.
Del Rio's new coaching staff included former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator and former Vikings head coach Mike Tice as offensive line coach; both had worked with Del Rio at the Jaguars in the past.
The Raiders secured the 4 pick in the NFL draft , which was used on receiver Amari Cooper. The Raiders finished 7—9 in , showing noticeable improvement over the previous season.
On January 4, , the Raiders filed for relocation alongside the Chargers and Rams. The Committee set up by the league to deal with Los Angeles initially recommended the Carson Site,  but the Chargers and Raiders were unable to secure the votes they needed to move.
After hours of debate, the league voted to allow the St. Louis Rams to move on January 12, with the San Diego Chargers having the option to join them within a year.
Davis then turned his attention to Las Vegas. In , the team finished 12—4 , finally making the postseason for the first time since with strong play on both offense and defense, but lost Derek Carr and backup Matt McGloin to season-ending injuries to close out the year.
Musgrave was let go following the playoff loss. After over 10 years of failure to secure a new stadium in Oakland to replace the decaying coliseum issues of which include sewage backups and flooding  and after missing out on Los Angeles, on March 27, , the NFL granted the team permission to relocate to Las Vegas, Nevada , pending the new Allegiant Stadium 's completion.
The Raiders soon announced plans to stay in Oakland until the new stadium was completed in Following a season-ending 4-game losing streak to finish 6—10 in , in addition to a regression of the offense under Todd Downing , Del Rio was fired by Mark Davis.
On December 10, the Raiders fired general manager Reggie McKenzie , who had been with the Raiders since
