1996 NC State Wolfpack football team

The 1996 NC State Wolfpack football team represented North Carolina State University during the 1996 NCAA Division I-A football season. The team's head coach was Mike O'Cain. NC State has been a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) since the league's inception in 1953. The Wolfpack played its home games in 1996 at Carter–Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina, which has been NC State football's home stadium since 1966.

1998 Jacksonville Jaguars season

The 1998 Jacksonville Jaguars season was the franchise’s fourth year in the National Football League. The team equaled the 11–5 record from their previous season but won their first division title as both the Oilers and the Pittsburgh Steelers lost crucial games near the end of the regular season. The Jaguars appeared twice on Monday Night Football.

1998 NFL Draft

The 1998 NFL draft was the procedure by which National Football League teams selected amateur college football players. It is officially known as the NFL Annual Player Selection Meeting. The draft was held April 18–19, 1998, at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. The league also held a supplemental draft after the regular draft and before the regular season.

Before the draft, there was much debate in the media on if the Indianapolis Colts would select Peyton Manning or Ryan Leaf, both of whom were considered excellent prospects and future franchise quarterbacks, with the first overall pick. Leaf was considered to have more upside and a stronger throwing arm, while Manning was considered a prospect who was NFL ready and more mature.

On the day of the draft, the Colts selected Manning due to Leaf's disdain for Indianapolis. Manning went on to be a five-time Most Valuable Player award winner, the most of any player in NFL history, and a two-time Super Bowl champion, whereas Leaf was out of the NFL by 2002, and is considered one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history.

1999 Jacksonville Jaguars season

The 1999 Jacksonville Jaguars season was the team's fifth year in the National Football League. Wide receiver Jimmy Smith set a franchise record for most receptions and receiving yards in one season. Smith would finish second in the NFL in receiving yards with 1,636 yards. The Jaguars’ regular season record of 14–2 still stands as their best record in franchise history, but this would be the last time Jacksonville won any division title until they won the AFC South title in 2017.

The Jaguars hired former Carolina Panthers head coach Dom Capers to be their defensive coordinator. Under Capers, the team went from 25th in 1998 to 4th in 1999 in total defense. The Jaguars defense yielded the fewest points in the NFL with 217 (an average of 13.6 points per game).Pro Football Reference, however, argues that the 1999 Jaguars gained the fifth-easiest schedule of any NFL team between 1971 and 2017 inclusive. Both regular season losses were to the Tennessee Titans, and they lost again to Tennessee in the AFC Championship Game, making the Titans the only team to beat them the entire season. However, the only other occasion the Jaguars opposed an team with a winning record was their demolition of the 9–7 Dolphins in the divisional playoff. Most significantly, Jacksonville missed Super Bowl champion St. Louis, despite defeating the other four teams then comprising the NFC West – including a 41–3 destruction of the San Francisco 49ers on opening day – while their non-division conference opponents were Broncos and Jets outfits weakened by injuries to Terrell Davis and Vinny Testaverde.

2000 Jacksonville Jaguars season

The 2000 Jacksonville Jaguars season was the franchise’s sixth year in the National Football League. The Jaguars in 1999 had obtained an NFL-best record of 14–2 and thrashed the Miami Dolphins 62–7 in their divisional round game. However, they were helped to this by an extremely easy regular season schedule. In 2000, the Jaguars were severely hit by the loss of safety Carnell Lake for the entire season to foot surgery, and by an ultimately career-ending knee injury to right tackle Leon Searcy. Further offensive line injuries, notably to left tackle Zach Wiegert and center John Wade, crippled the Jaguars all season, with the result that after a fair start the Jaguars fell in Week 4 to five consecutive losses and were out of the running for a postseason berth by November. Ultimately the team’s tally of wins was halved vis-à-vis 1999. At the close of the season, the Jaguars also had problems with being $31 million over the salary cap.

2001 Jacksonville Jaguars season

The 2001 Jacksonville Jaguars season was the franchise’s seventh year in the National Football League.

This was the debut year where the Jaguars wore black shoes to their uniforms. The team from then as of 2015 still wears the black shoes with the updated uniforms introduced in 2013.

2002 Oakland Raiders season

The 2002 Oakland Raiders season was the franchise's 33rd season in the National Football League, the 43rd overall, the seventh back in Oakland and the first season under head coach Bill Callahan. The Raiders played their home games at Network Associates Coliseum as members of the AFC West. The Raiders had essentially traded their head coach Jon Gruden following the 2001 season. The Raiders hired Callahan, the offensive coordinator under Gruden to return them to the playoffs.

Despite their talent, the Raiders struggled in the first half of the season. A 4–0 start was followed by four consecutive losses; the team's 4–4 record stunned many onlookers. The team, however, redeemed itself by winning seven of its final eight contests. In the third quarter of Oakland's 26–20 win on Monday Night Football over the Jets, Tim Brown became the third player in NFL history with 1,000 career catches. Finishing 11–5 in a conference where twelve teams obtained .500 or better records and nine were above .500, the Raiders won the AFC West for the third consecutive season and clinched the AFC's top seed and full home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. They routed the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans in the playoffs, by a combined score of 71–34 and a plus-four in turnover differential; in doing so, they advanced to their first Super Bowl since 1984. Their opponent was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by their former coach Jon Gruden.

The Raiders entered Super Bowl XXXVII as slight favorites; many predicted a hard-fought showdown between Oakland's top-ranked offense and Tampa Bay's top-ranked defense. The resulting game, however, ended in disaster for the Raiders. An early three-point lead (courtesy of a Sebastian Janikowski field goal) evaporated as the Buccaneers scored 34 unanswered points. The Buccaneers defense, aided by Gruden's knowledge of the Raider offense and Raiders failure to change many of the terms for their offense, intercepted Rich Gannon three times during this scoring surge. Many times, Buccaneer safety John Lynch was able to determine what play was coming based on audibles called by Raider quarterback Rich Gannon. A furious Raider rally cut the score to an almost-competitive 34–21 in the fourth quarter. However, two more Gannon interceptions sealed the Raiders' fate in a 21–48 bludgeoning.

The years following the Super Bowl loss marked a period of decline and futility for the Raiders, who would not obtain a winning record nor a playoff trip until 2016, and, as of 2018, have not won another postseason game since this season.

2003 Oakland Raiders season

The 2003 Oakland Raiders season was the 44th season of professional football for the Oakland Raiders franchise, their 34th season as members of the National Football League, and their eighth season since returning to Oakland. They were led by head coach Bill Callahan in his second and final year as head coach of the Raiders. The Raiders played their home games at Network Associates Coliseum as members of the AFC West. They finished the season 4–12 to finish in a tie for last place. It marked the first time since 1999 that the Raiders failed to make the playoffs.

Quarterback Rich Gannon, who had been the league MVP the previous season, injured his shoulder in seventh game of the season and was put on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. He was replaced by Marques Tuiasosopo and Rick Mirer. The Raiders had a five-game losing streak in the middle of the season and lost seven games by a touchdown or less. Their 4–12 record tied them with the Chargers, Giants, and Cardinals as the worst team in football in 2003 and they received the second pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.

The season was the last year in Oakland for wide receivers Tim Brown and Jerry Rice. Both future Hall of Fame members were held to four total touchdowns for the season.

Following the season, Raiders owner Al Davis fired head coach Bill Callahan and replaced him with Norv Turner.The 2003 season marked a turning point in Oakland Raider history, as it started a long period of futility and decline for the team. From 2003 to 2015, the Raiders failed to make the playoffs or have a winning season.

2004 Oakland Raiders season

The 2004 Oakland Raiders season was the 45th of professional football for the Oakland Raiders franchise, their 35th season as members of the National Football League, and their ninth season since returning to Oakland. They were led by head coach Norv Turner in his first season as head coach of the Raiders. They played their home games at Network Associates Coliseum as member of the AFC West. They finished the season 5–11, finishing in last place in the AFC West for the second consecutive year.

Though Rich Gannon began the season as the Raiders starting quarterback, he suffered a neck injury in the third game of the season that would eventually lead to his retirement. For the second consecutive season, the Raiders suffered a five-game losing streak in the middle of the season. They only won one game by a touchdown or more, defeating their Super Bowl XXXVII opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 20–10.

The team lost two of their starting receivers from the 2002 team: Tim Brown was released and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jerry Rice was traded to the Seattle Seahawks midseason.

2005 Oakland Raiders season

The 2005 Oakland Raiders season was the franchise's 36th season in the National Football League, the 46th overall, and the 11th back in Oakland. They were unable to improve upon their previous season's output of 5–11, instead only going 4–12. The team finished the season on a six-game losing streak. The Raiders team tied with the San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets, and the Tennessee Titans with a 4-12 record.

The Raiders acquired Randy Moss from the Minnesota Vikings in a trade for linebacker Napoleon Harris and a first-round draft pick. The acquisition of Moss sought to help with the team's struggling receiving corps for the past two years. However, Moss struggled in his first season with the Raiders, and he finished the season with only 60 receptions.

2006 Oakland Raiders season

The 2006 Oakland Raiders season was the franchise's 37th season in the National Football League, the 47th overall, and the 12th back in Oakland. They failed to improve on their 4–12 record from 2005, and ended with the Raiders having a painful 2–14 finish, the worst record in the 2006 NFL season, the worst season since the club went 1–13 in 1962, and their worst since the National Football League went to a 16-game schedule in 1978, thus earning the right to the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

Despite being one of the league's best defenses, the 2006 Raiders' offense struggled heavily, being the worst offense in the league in 2006, having only 168 points scored (10.5 per game), which is the fifth-fewest by an NFL team in a 16-game schedule. Oakland's two starting quarterbacks – Andrew Walter and Aaron Brooks – each threw only three touchdown passes all year.; a seventh was thrown by backup Marques Tuiasosopo.

Since losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII, the Raiders had a four-year aggregate record of 15–49 from 2003 to 2006, the worst in the NFL over that span. The only two games that the Raiders won were against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals, who incidentally would play against each other in Super Bowl XLIII just 2 seasons later.

According to Football Outsiders, the 2006 Raiders had the 6th largest offensive-defensive gap in the history, ranking 32nd in offense, but 8th in defense, behind the 2011 Patriots, 2002 and 2004 Chiefs, the 1992 Seahawks, and the 1991 Eagles.

2017 Colorado State Rams football team

The 2017 Colorado State Rams football team represented Colorado State University during the 2017 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Rams were led by third-year head coach Mike Bobo and played their home games at the newly built Sonny Lubick Field at Colorado State Stadium in Fort Collins, Colorado as members of the Mountain Division of the Mountain West Conference. They finished the season 7–6, 5–3 in Mountain West play to finish in a tie for second place in the Mountain Division. They were invited to the New Mexico Bowl where they lost to Marshall.

2019 Green Bay Packers season

The 2019 season will be the Green Bay Packers' upcoming 99th season in the National Football League, their 101st overall and their first under new head coach Matt LaFleur. After suffering back-to-back losing seasons in for the first time since 1990–91 and missing the playoffs back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2005–06, the Packers will look to improve on their 6–9–1 record from last year, and attempt to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
