The Raiders :OAK-NFL: are 3-4 with a strong runningback in Darren McFadden and passing attack led by Carson Palmer.  They have scored 139 points in 7 games which isn't bad but not good enough to cover their suspect defense.  Still, there is glimmer of hope in Oakland.  They play in a weak division.  The Broncos appear to be the front runner with floundering San Diego right behind them.  However, Oakland could leap past San Diego with a Chiefs upset on TNF this week.  How could the Raiders schedule play out this season?

Below is the remaining schedule with predicted losses in red and predicted wins in green.  The remaining schedule starts off with the rematch of Super Bowl XXXVII.

Week - Date - Opponent
9 Sun November 4      Tampa Bay Buccaneers                
10 Sun November 11     @ Baltimore Ravens               
11 Sun November 18      New Orleans Saints               
12 Sun November 25     @ Cincinnati Bengals   
13 Sun December 2      Cleveland Browns               
14 Thu December 6      Denver Broncos               
15 Sun December 16      Kansas City Chiefs               
16 Sun December 23     @ Carolina Panthers               
17 Sun December 30     @ San Diego Chargers

That outcome leads to an 8-8 record which may even get them to the playoffs in a very weak AFC.  They can beat Denver at home.  The Browns, Chiefs, Panthers, and Chargers are all comparable or weaker teams for Oakland.  Add another upset to the mix and the Raiders could be 9-7.  One thing we do know from the remaining schedule is that long winning or long losing streaks are likely.  Which Raiders team will we see down the stretch?  This one's for Al...

    Today at 08:42:24 PM
  • andyscott23: Good deal..
    Today at 08:43:06 PM
  • Scalious: unless you somehow commited to 120 Mil in Guaranteed salary. Which would be a hell of a feat.
    Today at 08:43:27 PM
  • andyscott23: don't think so
    Today at 08:50:36 PM
  • Scalious: Yeah..only right under 70 Mil Guaranteed for 2016...better than me. Thats for sure
    Today at 08:54:03 PM
  • andyscott23: I have to admit, Mendoza may be the best designed baseball league I have ever been a part of! Its perfect!
    Today at 08:59:26 PM
  • Gilly: oh jesus Lindner is going to be inflated for days now
    Today at 09:02:40 PM

    Today at 09:04:36 PM
  • Scalious: Took me a while to comb my minor league system. I remember first starting and people making offers for players i didn't even know I had
    Today at 09:05:02 PM
  • Ace: 162 starts per year is interesting; wonder if there have been problems with best teams almost guaranteeing playoff success by saving starts
    Today at 09:05:22 PM
  • andyscott23: Good point ace
    Today at 09:06:14 PM
  • Scalious: Nick tried that...and he got knocked in the first round.
    Today at 09:06:50 PM
  • andyscott23: Working on that team I feel more like the Red Sox.. I need some Chicken and Beer in here
    Today at 09:07:09 PM
  • Scalious: you gotta have enough active pitchers to make it work. So one had aqcuired enough SP and have the starts saved up to do that.
    Today at 09:08:37 PM
  • Scalious: Though It does bring a good point..non the less
    Today at 09:08:56 PM
  • Scalious: That and Pitchers can have negatives. If your pitcher gives up 2 or 3 HRs.. say goodnight
    Today at 09:10:19 PM
  • Corey: Shhh don't talk about my plan
    Today at 09:10:31 PM
