ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Stumbling to the finish of a losing season has become an all-too-familiar feeling around the Oakland Raiders.

With 11 straight years without a winning record or playoff berth and an NFL-worst 120 losses since the start of the 2003 season, the Raiders have had to search for any small positives they can find.

Despite coming off a 37-27 loss to a struggling New York Jets team held to six points the two previous weeks, the Raiders (4-9) see signs of progress in being competitive most weeks and being done in by a few small mistakes rather than being completely overmatched like they were a year ago.
