After seeing this match-up on the NFL schedule this week I have come to the mindset of do not expect too much.
The NFL this week has many fantastic match-ups, but when thinking of one those games as a fan I am not thinking Raiders Jaguars week seven. You are just not! Unless though you’re an Oakland or Jacksonville fan.
Since both teams are one and four record holders this game Sunday afternoon in Oakland has to be the first of many games to come that means nothing at all except for either team. Both teams these Sunday looks to make and put themselves another win in the standings thought both look terrible and non-playoff teams in 2012.
The Raiders this Sunday are coming off a very heartfelt loss to the only undefeated team in the NFL the Atlanta Falcons. Oakland went into Atlanta and the defense arrived! The Raiders caused Matt Ryan arguably right now the best quarterback in the NFL and picked him off three times. What Oakland also did was continue to pass the ball well with Carson Palmer and kept them within striking distance of beating the Falcons. Though in the end the Raiders found another way to lose and lost by three points in a 23-20 loss.
