Raiders using bye week to fix running game

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio plans to have his team spend part of the bye week trying to figure out how to fix a running game that was supposed to be a focal point of its offense. The Raiders are averaging 90 yards a game on the ground - sixth-lowest in the NFL - and have topped the 100-yard mark as a team just once. Injuries and a lack of consistent commitment...

Raiders run game goes missing in 2nd straight loss

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) For two straight weeks with the game on the line, running back Latavius Murray was on the bench for the Oakland Raiders. Murray got just two carries the entire second half on Sunday in Oakland's 16-10 loss to Denver because of a banged-up shoulder. That comes a week after Murray was a spectator for the final drive of a 22-20 loss in Chicago. Those two narrow...

Latavius Murray flashes superstar potential in Raiders’ Week 3 win

The Oakland Raiders were able to take care of business against the Cleveland Browns on the road this week with a 27-20 win. It wasn’t too surprising that they were able to come away with the win, but the performance that they received from running back Latavius Murray was a pleasant surprise that excites them for the future.

Raiders' Murray runs right through the Browns defense

The Browns might need to sign a few Olympic sprinters before their next meeting with Latavius Murray. Watch the Raiders' running back outrace six defenders on this speedy third-quarter run: Murray was 50 yards downfield before the first Browns defender made contact.

Oakland Raiders: Give the ball to Latavius Murray

The Oakland Raiders spent almost the entire game with a lead over the Baltimore Ravens. It came down to the final minutes partly because they did not pound the football with Latavius Murray. Murray played well in the game and averaged more than four yards a carry. His season average of 4.3 yards-per-carry is better than the 3 yards and change Darren McFadden posted as the lead back...

Latavius Murray: The man who could be the future at RB for the Raiders

Raider Nation was dismayed last season to see rookie running back Latavius Murray get placed on injured reserve at the end of August 2013. Murray was the Oakland Raiders’ sixth round draft pick in the 2013 NFL Draft and it was frustrating to see his rookie season cut short before the regular season even began.
