Another football Sunday in the Easy Bay. Another capacity crowd.
That’s the recurring theme as Oakland makes it three straight sellouts to begin the 2011 campaign. While many of those ticket sales can be attributed to the improved performance of the team this Sunday’s showdown with Cleveland is especially unique.
The Raiders will offer their official tribute to Al Davis one week after his sudden passing. Last Sunday the football world shared a brief moment of silence prior to each kickoff. After Oakland paid tribute by beating Houston in dramatic fashion they’ll have their chance to pay proper respects to Mr. Davis.
