NFL Week 15 is in the Books | Nasser Erakat

The Oakland Raiders were eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday when NFL Week 15 is in the Books | Nasser Erakatthey lost to the Green Bay Packers. The game started off very bad for the Raiders. They spotted the Green Bay Packers 14 points. You can’t give a team 14 points and expect to win. The Raiders did take the lead and made it 20-17 but that score didn’t hold up. The kick off after the Raiders took the lead was taken to the 47 and three plays later Green Bay took the lead and pretty much it was over. Green Bay (10-4) would go on to win the game 30-20 and Oakland (6-8) will have to wait until next year for the playoffs.

I will say that I was very happy with the team this year. They competed until Sunday, Week 15. When was the last time the Raiders were still in it until Week 15. I predicted 6-10 and they already have there 6 wins which doubled their win total from last year. These young players Carr,Cooper and Mack are the foundation of the future.

The NFL playoffs have taken shape and pretty much we know who is in and who is out.

The Oakland Raiders safety announced Monday evening that he NFL Week 15 is in the Books | Nasser Erakatwill retire after the 2015 season.

“2015 is going to be my last season playing in the NFL,” Woodson said. “Was it a tough decision? Kind of in a way. But a couple weeks ago it hit me that this would be it. It’s important for me to let Raider Nation know now.”

One of the most versatile, talented and productive defensive backs in NFL history, Woodson was a three-time first-team All-Pro at cornerback for the Raiders and Green Bay Packers before successfully converting to safety in his twilight years.

After edging Peyton Manning out for the Heisman Trophy as a rare “two-way player” at the college level, the former Michigan star earned NFL Rookie of the Year honors as the defensive equivalent to fellow first-year phenom Randy Moss in 1998.

“When he learns more about technique,” then-Ramsreceivers coach Al Saunders said at the time, “he has a chance to be one of the best to ever play the position.” Full Article

Odell Beckham Jr. Suspended for Hit on Josh Norman: Latest Comments and Reaction
