Raiders vs. Seahawks: Live Blog, Stats and Play-By-Play Analysis

Welcome NFL fans to the live play-by-play blog of the Week 8 meeting between the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders. I'm Jay Dee, featured columnist for the Raiders. Therefore, expect this to be a very biased account of the game!

Pete Carrol and the Seattle Seahawks must have drawn the short straw this year. How else do you explain them having to travel to Northern California to take on the Oakland Raiders in front of the most rabid fans in the NFL—on Halloween no less?!

Every home game in the Black Hole is a little like Halloween, but with the game actually being played on "All Hallows Eve," Raider Nation is sure to be in full regali

Sea and foaming at the mouth.

Tom Cable has this Raider team playing a lot better and they are beginning to look as though they are starting to believe. Pete Carrol has done a nice job turning the Seahawks around after a few dismal years.

The Raiders will be attempting to go .500 at the midpoint of the season for the first time since 2002, and the Seahawks will be playing for a strangle hold on the weak NFC West.

This former AFC West rivalry should prove to be a hard-fought battle between two teams trying to claw their way back to respectability.

Stay with me as I regularly update you on all the goings-on throughout the entire game.


Three minutes to kick off and I'm still watching the Green Bay vs N.Y. Jets game.  The Raiders are supposed to be on right after.



GAME ON!  Raiders-33  Seahawks-3


The Raiders win the toss and choose to receive.  Mare Kicks off to the 3 yard line, returned by Jacoby Ford for 20 yards.  Illegal block in the back against the Raiders. The Raiders will start at their own 10 yard line.
