In other Raiders’ links:

  • Raiders open as 10-point underdogs: DraftKings Sportsbook has Las Vegas as heavy underdogs on Christmas Day in Kansas City.
  • Tom Brady's ownership delayed by owners again: “It’s still not clear if/when the partial sale ever will be approved,” Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio wrote. “The problems, based on reporting from the league’s October meetings indicate, include the recent rule against giving equity to employees to Brady’s upcoming broadcasting career with Fox to a discount of as much as roughly 70 percent of the purchase the price charged by Davis to Brady for up to 10 percent of the team.”
  • Antonio Pierce’s odds to become full-time head coach: “Probably as much as the 3-0 loss to the Vikings hurt his chances four days earlier,” ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez wrote in response to how much Thursday’s win improved Pierce’s changes. “Each game is a season unto itself, but as more than one player said in the locker room after beating the Chargers, they are playing for Pierce and interim general manager Champ Kelly.”
  • Hypothetical trade sends Davante Adams to Ravens: “For the Raiders, it would be an opportunity to get out from under Adams’ massive contract while gaining another valuable piece to the puzzle of rebuilding,” Alex Ballentine of Bleacher Report explained his rationale for sending the wideout to Baltimore for a first-round pick. “Whoever the new general manager is would get an opportunity to draft another guy he likes without having to plan around a player he didn’t bring in.”
