Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray awarded huge Week 12 honor

Twelve weeks into the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad. Who fell...

Latavius Murray’s record setting game is not enough to earn starting role

The Oakland Raiders have had the worst rushing attack in the modern era of football this year. Until Latavius Murray’s breakout game against the Kansas City Chiefs that is. In that game (and on only four carries), Murray put up more rushing yards than either Darren McFadden or Maurice Jones Drew had put up in the first ten games of the season. He also matched McFadden for the team...

Latavius Murray makes history in less than a half of football

For months I have been saying that the Oakland Raiders needed to see what Latavius Murray could do. But even in my wildest dreams I did not imagine he would do what he did. I was mostly arguing that the Raiders needed to see what they had in advance of the offseason. I hoped against hope he could be a great back, but silly me, I didn’t think the coaching staff was dumb enough to...

Latavius Murray leaves Raiders fans irate and wondering what could have been

Oakland Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr has had a rough go of things in his rookie season. He has shown a lot of skill and potential, but surrounded by a terrible offense with no run game and inconsistent pass catchers, he just could not muster up much on offense. The defense struggle this season as well, but has played much better in recent weeks while the offense continued...

The dawning of the age of Latavius: Oakland RB Latavius Murray in a position to make noise to close ’14

It started quietly in Week 11, as 2nd year back Latavius Murray picked up a few late game snaps and actually wound up playing the most of any Raiders RB. His seven touches didn’t really register, as you’d have to be looking out for them to notice a relatively benign contribution to the Oakland box score. He ran well though, with four carries for 43 yards and three receptions...

WATCH: Kansas City Chiefs DB Kurt Coleman Knocks Raiders RB Latavius Murray Out of the Game

Latavius Murray, an unknown second year back out of Central Florida managed to do what no one else in the league had done this season--score a rushing touchdown. He didn't only score one (a nice little 11-yard run), but two with the second coming on an epic 90-yard run. How epic? It was the longest run of the season.With their new found running game could the Raiders pull off...

WATCH: Some Guy You've Never Heard of (Latavius Murray) Scored First Rushing Touchdown of the Season on the Chiefs D

Somehow the Kansas City Chiefs defense had managed to not allow a single rushing touchdown the whole season heading in to Thursday night's game against the lowly Oakland Raiders. Odds are someone will eventually score one against the Chiefs defense, but on paper that time did not look like it could be the Oakland Raiders.They've only scored two rushing touchdowns all season themselves...

Young Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray broke off a 90-yard touchdown early in the second quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Raiders have a stud back in Latavius Murray, but why aren’t they using him?

Latavius Murray is a big back from the University of Central Florida. The guy runs with power and speed and is a hard player to bring down.  So I ask the question today, why aren’t the Raiders using him more? In one carry, Murray broke off 14 yards which was just short of what Darren […] The post Raiders have a stud back in Latavius Murray, but why aren’t they using him? appeared...
