Oakland Raiders officially eliminated from playoffs!

Oakland Raiders officially eliminated from playoffs!

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

The Oakland Raiders (6-8) were officially eliminated from the AFC playoff picture on Sunday afternoon, this after suffering a 30-20 home loss to the Green Bay Packers (10-4).

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr played decent on Sunday, completing 23 of 47 passes for 276 yards and 2 touchdowns. However, the young pivot did throw 2 untimely interceptions, which went a long-way in ruining Oakland’s chances of upsetting the NFC North leading Packers squad.

Still, the Raiders should take pride in their 2015 regular season, which saw them score upset victories over the San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos and New York Jets.

The future definitely looks promising for the Raiders who have a young and very talented offense led by the aforementioned Derek Carr.

Oakland will close out the season with games against division rivals the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Seattle Seahawks extend win streak to four in a row!

Seattle Seahawks extend win streak to four in a row!

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

The Seattle Seahawks (8-5) extended their current win streak to four games in a row by destroying the Ravens (4-9) by a final score of 35-6 yesterday afternoon in Baltimore.

Seattle’s defense appears to have returned to the form which saw them capture the Super Bowl just two years ago.

The Seahawks have given up a total of 13 points in their past two games against the Minnesota Vikings and aforementioned Baltimore Ravens, which has resulted in the squad becoming the NFL’s second-ranked overall defense.

Seattle’s star quarterback, Russell Wilson, threw five touchdown passes on Sunday afternoon, three of which went to wideout Doug Baldwin.

With their Week 14 victory over the Ravens, the Seahawks now find themselves in an NFC Wild Card spot.

The one piece of bad news for Seattle fans was that the team lost running back Thomas Rawls for the remainder of the season with a broken ankle.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll stated yesterday that there is still no timetable for the return of “Beastmode” aka Marshawn Lynch.

Seattle’s remaining three games will be played at home against the Cleveland Browns, St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals.

Tennessee Titats vs Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday Night Football Preview

Tennessee Titats vs Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday Night Football Preview

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

The Tennessee Titan (2-7) will invade EverBank Field tonight to battle the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6) in this week’s edition of Thursday Night Football.

The Jaguars are coming off an impressive 22-20 road victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Jags quarterback Blake Bortles is having a breakthrough year this season, completing 197 passes for 2,381 yards and 19 touchdowns thus far.

Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson have proven to be solid receivers this year in Jacksonvillle, the pair have combined for seven receiving touchdowns on the season, including 2 last week.

Running back T.J. Yeldon has been consistent for the Jags on the ground this season, carrying the ball 133 times for 531 yards and a touchdown.

The Jaguars defense will need to play at their very best if they hope to slow down Marcus Mariota and the Titans offense on Thursday night.

Tennessee’s rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota has shown signs of brilliance this season, completing 147 passes for 1,795 yards and 13 touchdowns in his seven games played.

The Titans running game has struggled behind Mariota, as running backs Antonio Andrews and Dexter McCluster have yet to combine for 600 total yards on the season.

The Titans boast the league’s number 3 ranked pass defense, which will be counted on to shutdown Blake Bortles and the Jags.

Las Vegas currently has the Jaguars pegged as -3 point favorites, with the over/under set at 42 points.

I think “Mighty Marcus” and the Titans will prove to be the better AFC South team tonight in Jacksonville , winning by a final score of 23-20.
