Sword & Shield: Raiders get a reality check in Green Bay

GREEN BAY, Wis. (KLAS) — The playoffs seemed like a preseason fantasy world for the Raiders, but after their win in London over the Bears, it felt possible. The squad traveled to Green Bay on Sunday, running into Aaron Rodgers and a reality check.

Rodgers was historically great, hooking up with Jamal Williams for a touchdown on the Packers’ first drive of the game. The score was eventually 14-10, and the Raiders hung in there the best they could.

At one point, Derek Carr fumbled the ball in the endzone, causing a turnover, a touchback and a devastating blow to the team’s momentum.

What’s Driving You Crazy? – Will “Project Neon” ever end?

LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – The ghost of Project Neon can’t live forever.

The state’s biggest most expensive construction project ever is taking some dings with ongoing work following the celebration of the project’s “substantial completion” back in August. I have obviously kidded the Nevada Dept of Transportation as what I’ve named “The Ghost of Project Neon” lives on. But I know that there will come a time when all of this really is in our rear view mirrors, so, it’s with some reverence for the eventual real end of Project Neon that I announce a couple more “ramp closures in the Spaghetti Bowl.”

From 10 Monday night until 5am Tuesday, the ramp from northbound i-15 to southbound US95 will be closed.

Then from 10 Tuesday night until 5 Wednesday morning, the ramp from southbound I-15 to northbound 95 will be closed... Read More
