Oakland Raiders Tickets - Description
The Oakland Raiders were first created in 1960 as a part of the American Football League. The team struggled at first, and it wasn't until legendary coaches such as Al Davis and John Madden took the Raiders into the glory years. Raider Nation are the die hard fans of the team and are recognized by dressing up in face masks, and black outfits. The Oakland Raiders have won a total of thirteen championships, three division titles, one conference title, and three Super Bowls.
What to expect at an Oakland Raiders Game
Proudly serving some of the most animated fans in the country since 1960, the Raiders always deliver a show at each NFL game they play, no matter the stakes. Aside from the dazzling exhibition itself, fans can enjoy the San Francisco Bay area, great local food and other major sporting events. After an electrifying experience in the stands with some of the NFL’s most rambunctious fans, head to Oliveto or Tamarindo Antojeria for a delicious victory meal and some drinks.
Oakland Raiders O.co Coliseum
Unlike newer NFL stadiums, the Oakland Raiders' O.co Coliseum has a long and rich history. The venue was originally opened in 1966 and was remodeled to become more modern in 1996. Its host city, Oakland, beat out neighboring San Francisco to earn the right to house the stadium. The O.co Coliseum has always been a multi-purpose venue; while it has hosted the Oakland Raiders for several decades without interruption, it has always welcomed entertainers for events such as concerts, as well as other sports teams from the area. For NFL games, O.co Coliseum can accommodate 63,026 fans.
Oakland Raiders 2011 Team Outlook
Signs of competitive life finally emerged from the Oakland Raiders a year ago. The Raiders did not lose 10 games for the first time since reaching their last Super Bowl in 2002. If Al Davis does not derail progress with poor decisions, Oakland could build on things in 2011. Defense is a mixed bag for the Raiders. Oakland allowed 3,027 passing yards, good for second among NFL teams. The Raiders, however, allowed 29 passing touchdowns. They also struggled to stop the run, allowing 2,138 yards on the ground. The offense has a budding star in Darren McFadden. A year ago, McFadden finally enjoyed a breakout season with 1,157 rushing yards, 507 receiving yards receiving and 10 total touchdowns to his credit. As a team, Oakland ranked second among NFL teams in the main rushing offensive categories. The Raiders churned up 2,494 yards and 19 touchdowns through the ground game.
