The Oakland Raiders went 7-9 last season and finished in third place in the AFC West behind Kansas City (11-5) and Super Bowl champion Denver (12-4). But the NFL Network’s Willie McGinest says “it’s time” for the Raiders to win the West. “Not so fast,” says the network’s Heath Evans, however.
In answering whether the NFL would allow betting in Las Vegas should the Oakland Raiders relocate here, the director of the largest sports book operation on the Strip may have created the town's new catchphrase.
Numerologists will note that the Raiders have the 14th, 44th, 75th, 114th, 143rd, 154th, 194th and 234th picks in next week’s NFL draft. The process will take three days, or four fewer than the seven reported in Genesis needed to create the world.
