Not what you're looking for in this thread I know,  but my favorite Browns vs Raiders trivia was when I was at the LA Coliseum in '93 and watched Eric Metcalf take the pitch from Vinny and high step into the end zone as time expired to complete the Browns' furious comeback......  Still the best football game I have ever seen in person.  https://www.si.com/vault/1993/09/27/129400/unbeaten-unbelievable-how-can-the-cleveland-browns-be-3-0-and-how-about-that-vinny-testaverde

I remember that play like yesterday... When they handed off to Metcalf I screamed: "WHAT ARE YOU DOING WE HAVE NO TIMEOUTS!" because if he got tackled, the game would be over.

Then he scored, and I was all like: "Hey, good call." 😁

7. I can tell you that their nickname almost was the Senors, which would have been so, so bad. I had to look up the city because I never knew that the franchise almost went to another city. (Since I looked it up, I won't say what city). Apparently the only reason it was given to Oakland was because the owner of the Los Angeles (and then San Diego the next season) Chargers threatened to rescind his ownership offer if the AFL did not put another team in California.

12.. Two Raiders players have won NFL Comeback Player of the Year.   Name them.

Several possibilities come to mind but I'll try 1. Plunkett and 2. Lyle Alzado again, he was always banging around in there.

Am I supposed to ask super easy questions, like what are the Raider's colors?  What slogans have they trademarked?  You can answer those.

Friday afternoon Answers:

Here is Trivia about the Browns opponent this week.   See what you can do:

1. A.  What is the regular season head to head record between the Browns and the Raiders?

Raiders lead 12-10

B. What is their postseason head to head record?

Raiders lead 2-0   both games just 2 years apart:  1980 and 1982

 

2. Which Raiders 1st round draft pick spent some time playing for the Browns?

Tight End Rickey Dudley

 

3. Which Raiders  HC  also coached the Browns?

Hue Jackson......who needs 6 more wins this year to catch the number of wins he had one year with the Raiders (8-8)

 

4. What two players that lead the Raiders in passing also played for the Browns?

Jason Campbell and.........Terrell Pryor.

 

5. What  receiver that lead the Raiders in receiving one year also played for the Browns?

Rod Streator!    Of course, can we say that Streator has yet played for the Browns?

 

6. Name the two players that made the Pro Bowl as a Raider that also played for the Browns?

RB Greg Pruitt, and K Jeff Jaeger.    (as noted, Alzado never made Pro Bowl as a Raider)

 

7. The Raiders were not supposed to originally play in Oakland when the AFL was being formed  (nor were they to be named the Raiders).    What city was supposed to get what became the Oakland Raiders franchise?

Minnesota.  No name was assigned to them, but when the AFL learned that the NFL was going to give Minnesota a team (Vikings), they decided to bug out of Minny....and go to Oakland.  And, as someone said,  Conrad Hilton would only agree to put his AFL team in LA (later to be moved to San Diego...and now back to LA)...if the AFL put another team on the west coast.  With them ducking out on Minnesota it opened it up for a team to be put in the Bay area.

 

8. What uniform numbers have the Raiders retired?

None....-0-   The Raiders do not retire numbers.   Though......the 00 that Jim Otto wore will not be used again, not because it is retired, but because the NFL disallows the use of that number now.

 

9. The Raiders have won 3 Super Bowls, and in each a different player was named SB MVP.   Name those 3 players

Fred Biletnikoff, Jim Plunkett and Marcus Allen

 

10. Raiders players have  won the NFL MVP   3 times.   Name those 3 players.

12. Two Raiders players have won NFL Comeback Player of the Year.   Name them.

Jim Plunkett and Lyle Alzado
