By Shaun Gibson, published on Aug 2, 2013

...had something to do with her family’s "Googling" habits:

"What happened was this: At about 9:00 am, my husband, who happened to be home yesterday, was sitting in the living room with our two dogs when he heard a couple of cars pull up outside. He looked out the window and saw three black SUVs in front of our house; two at the curb in front and one pulled up behind my husband’s Jeep in the driveway, as if to block him from leaving.

The key 33-3 win over the Seahawks yesteday put the Raiders a game behind the AFC West leading Kansas City Chiefs with the Raiders hosting the Chiefs on Sunday for a shot at a piece of the division lead.

So what makes this year's Silver and Black different from the previous seven since Oakland's Super Bowl disaster against Tampa Bay?

For starters, the Raiders bring back head coach Tom Cable for his third season, giving the Raiders the much-needed coaching stability that they've been without since Al Davis fired Bill Callahan... (more)
