PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : RAIDERS : Losing Streak Has Reached Six Games

Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals dropped the Raiders to 0-2. They also lost their final three regular-season games last season and their only playoff game.

Those six consecutive losses are one shy of the slump that the Raiders suffered in 1987. But two of those seven losses came in the midst of a strike that forced teams to play with replacement players. The Raider finished 5-10 that season.

The last time the Raiders won a regular-season home game was Nov. 17, when they beat the Seattle Seahawks, 31-7.

Defensive tackle Chester McGlockton has recovered from a bruised foot and returned to practice. Raider Coach Art Shell said that he will decide later this week whether McGlockton will play Sunday in the home opener against the Cleveland Browns.
