LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Raiders were fittingly the first team to play inside Allegiant Stadium, their sparkling new home near the famed Las Vegas Strip.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Mark Davis sat alone on a metal bench at the 35-yard line inside Allegiant Stadium a little more than an hour before the Las Vegas Raiders took the field Friday.
After years of playing in a dilapidated stadium in Oakland with a rundown team facility, the Raiders were looking forward to showing off their fancy new digs in Las Vegas this season.

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock were invited by Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis for an event in Las Vegas last week, a year before the team's planned move to Sin City.
The Raiders thought they finally found a place to play next season, only to find out they're not wanted in San Francisco.
Not by the mayor, and certainly not by the team that still calls itself the San Francisco 49ers — even while it plays its games in a stadium 40 miles away in the Silicon Valley. They've pretty much shut down any plans to play at Oracle Park, home of the baseball Giants.
"As far as I'm concerned, the Oakland Raiders should play in Oakland," San Francisco Mayor London Breed said.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Oakland Raiders are in talks with the Giants about playing their home games next season at Oracle Park in San Francisco.
A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Sunday night the two sides are in discussions, but no deal has been reached. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing has been finalized.
NBC Bay Area reported that an announcement of the Raiders' plans to play in San Francisco will be made this week.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Coliseum Authority will meet Friday to get an update on the possibility of whether the Raiders could stay in Oakland another year.
Authority executive director Scott McKibben said he will update the board in closed session on where things stand between the Raiders and the Coliseum following a lawsuit filed by the city of Oakland against the team and the NFL last month. No Raiders officials will be present.
DALLAS (AP) — The NFL draft is heading to Las Vegas for 2020.
It almost certainly will arrive before the Raiders do.
"We believe the draft will be the kickoff to our inaugural season," said Raiders owner Mark Davis, who is moving the team from Oakland.
The league announced Wednesday at an owners meeting that the city where the Raiders will begin play in September 2020 will host the draft that April.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — After nine seasons without competition in the broadcast booth, Jon Gruden needed only a few plays of the exhibition season to get his old sideline persona back.
A holding call that wiped out a touchdown brought out the temper that earned Gruden a nickname from the slasher movie "Child's Play" during his first stint as coach in Oakland.
"Chucky came out for a brief moment right there," Gruden said.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Eighteen years after the Raiders made kicker Sebastian Janikowski a surprise first-round draft pick, his career in Oakland has come to an end.
The team told Janikowski this week that he won't be brought back when he becomes an unrestricted free agent next month.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The NFL said Friday that the Oakland Raiders complied with the "Rooney Rule" when they hired Jon Gruden as head coach.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The NFL said Thursday it will investigate whether the Oakland Raiders violated the "Rooney Rule" when they hired Jon Gruden as coach.
The Fritz Pollard Alliance called for the investigation on Wednesday out of concern that Raiders owner Mark Davis came to an agreement with Gruden before the team interviewed any minority candidates as required by the NFL since 2003.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement that the NFL will "look into this."
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Fritz Pollard Alliance called Wednesday for the NFL to investigate whether the Oakland Raiders violated the "Rooney Rule" when they hired Jon Gruden as coach.
Fritz Pollard Alliance counsel Cyrus Mehri and N. Jeremi Duru said they were concerned that Raiders owner Mark Davis came to an agreement with Gruden before the team interviewed any minority candidates as required by the NFL since 2003.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Jon Gruden has never had a promising, young quarterback like Derek Carr to develop in 11 seasons as an NFL head coach.
Carr hasn't had the opportunity to play for a coach like Gruden, an offensive mastermind known for his maniacal work ethic and attention to detail.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Jon Gruden finally decided the time was right to finish what he nearly achieved in his first stint in Oakland and deliver another Super Bowl title to the Raiders.
Nearly 16 years after he was traded to Tampa Bay following a crushing loss in the "Tuck Rule" game in New England and after a six-year courtship by Raiders owner Mark Davis, Gruden is officially back in Oakland where he started his head coaching career 20 years ago.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Raiders never really recovered from the decision to trade Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay 16 years ago.
There was a Super Bowl trip the following season when Oakland lost to Gruden's Buccaneers and another playoff appearance in 2016 under Jack Del Rio that garnered little optimism because quarterback Derek Carr was injured.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Jon Gruden says he had a good talk with Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis about returning to the organization for a second stint as coach and believes there is a "good chance" it will happen.
Gruden gave an interview to ESPN Radio on Wednesday to discuss his pursuit of the Raiders job that opened when Jack Del Rio was fired after a disappointing six-win season.
The final weekend of the NFL's regular season produced some frozen water fails on television and some frostiness from Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis, who put Jack Del Rio in the awkward position of announcing his own firing.
Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was fired Sunday after his third year when the impressive turnaround job he engineered for his hometown team collapsed with a disappointing six-win season.
Del Rio said owner Mark Davis told him after the team's season-ending 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers that he would not be retained as coach in Oakland.
Del Rio had signed a four-year contract extension last February after Oakland ended a 13-year playoff drought with a 12-win season.
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — The Raiders spent only 13 seasons in Los Angeles after moving down in 1982.
Al Davis took them back to Oakland after 1994, and Mark Davis is almost certainly moving them yet again to Las Vegas in the near future.
But during that largely successful era, the Raiders formed a passionate bond with a generation of LA football fans — and they won the city's only Super Bowl title.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Former Oakland Raiders defensive back Dave Grayson has died. He was 78.
Oakland owner Mark Davis said Sunday that the Raiders family is saddened by Grayson's death. The team did not give a cause of death.
Grayson played 139 career games with the Raiders, Dallas Texans and Kansas City Chiefs. He had 48 career interceptions, including five returned for touchdowns.
