Fargas Looks To Repeat Ground Success This Sunday

Fargas Looks To Repeat Ground Success This Sunday

Sunday’s December 21st afternoon game when the Oakland Raiders host the Houston Texans will likely be blacked out on Raiders local Bay Area networks. Instead of airing a 1 PM Raiders games, CBS will show the New York Jets on the road against the Seattle Seahawks.

If anyone’s interested, the Jets are in a three-way tie for first in the AFC East with the Patriots and Dolphins and interesting to note, the Jets are 0-3 on the road against West Coast teams (Losses against the Raiders, Niners, and Chargers).

As for the Raiders-Texans game, the Raiders face a hot Texans team which won their last 4 games. Since the Texans 2002 induction to the NFL, Oakland has lost all three games against the Houston.

  • 2004: L 30-17
  • 2006: L 23-14
  • 2007: L 24-17
Asomugha will have his hands full covering fellow Pro Bowl star Andre Johnson. But if the Raiders can control the ball and run effectively, the Raiders will be able to hang in the game. Otherwise, Houston’s young defense, speedster running back Steve Slaton, along with the Schaub-Walter-Johnson tandem may be too much for Oakland to contain.

    I hope instead of the Jets/Seahawks, they show the Broncos pummell the Bills, so the entire Raider Nation can watch the Broncos clinch the West, while they weep.

    Right…more like the Broncos lose their next 2 only to blow a huge lead to watch the Chargers make the playoffs.

    But hey, I’m sure the Broncos excellent defense and 7th running back of the year can do it.

    First, thanks for the coemnmt. Second, the Pats-Bills MNF aka Leodis McKelvin fumble game was one of my 2 worst moments in recent memory as well that was like Part 2 of the Buffalo Bills MNF Curse Era and it hurt just as bad. It makes me remember two games in consecutive seasons going back a few more years: Everyone remembers the Music City Miracle, but the year before when Doug Flutie lead the Bills on a comeback against the hated Dolphins only to come up short at the last moment when Trace Armstrong nailed Flutie at the 4 yard line was almost equally painful to see. Great stories there I must say it’s a hell of a lot harder to choose a worst memory than a best memory because until this season (honestly), close games never really went our way especially in the last decade. And by the way (to you as well) we’ll be in touch regarding that Fred Jackson t-shirt because WEEE HAVE A WEENAHHHHH!!!! But to other fans who might read this, don’t worry, there are more shirts going out just keep sending those stories in
