The Oakland Raiders are desperately in search of some sort of positive news.
The Raiders (3-8) just finished perhaps the worst month in franchise history by losing all four games in November, capped by three straight losses by at least 21 points
The team's first four-game skid since 2008 assures Oakland of a 10th straight season without a winning record and has turned the focus to the future rather than a playoff run.
Coach Dennis Allen says everyone is accountable for the problems and he will look at all options to get things back on track, including possibly finding a role for third-string quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
