Best of Rivera 2014

The best photos of TE Mychal Rivera from the 2014 season.

During his second season in Silver and Black, TE Mychal Rivera emerged as a legitimate, pass-catching threat for the Oakland offense.

The second-year player started all 16 games for the Raiders and hauled in 58 passes for 534 yards and four touchdowns in 2014.

Rivera enjoyed the first multi-touchdown game of his career when the Raiders flew to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in Week Nine. He finished the game with eight receptions for 38 yards, and his two touchdown receptions are the most by a Raiders tight end since Brandon Myers posted two on November 4, 2012.

He also enjoyed a breakout game in the Battle of the Bay versus the San Francisco 49ers, where he led the Raiders in receiving with seven catches for 109 yards and one touchdown. It was Rivera's first 100-yard receiving game and the first by a Raiders tight end since Brandon Myers (130 yards, 12/2/12 vs. Cle.).

Rivera's 5-yard touchdown pass from Carr in the fourth quarter was the eighth of his career, giving him sole possession of eighth among Raiders tight ends.

The Raiders Week 15 game against the Chiefs marked the fourth game Rivera recorded at least seven receptions, tied for second most in a season by a Raiders tight end (Todd Christensen, six in 1983 and 1986).
