But if Monday was indeed the final Raider game played at the Oakland Coliseum, Raiders players dug deep to give a loyal-to-a-fault fan base a fitting finale. With the Coliseum packed with fans shunning Christmas Eve at home to watch a pair of bad football teams in a meaningless game, the Raiders rolled over th...
