The resurgent Oakland Raiders look to stay atop of the AFC West as they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in a key Week 11 NFL matchup. The Raiders lead the all-time series 13-11, which includes a win by Oakland in the most recent matchup between these franchises last season when they posted a 27-24 triumph on December 6. It marked the second straight victory in the series for the Raiders, so the Steelers would like to provide some payback while keeping pace with co-AFC North Division leader Baltimore.

The Steelers are dealing with some key injuries. Troy Polamalu, Will Allen, and Aaron Smith have all been unable to participate in practice this week, while Brett Keisel, Lawrence Timmons, and Chris Kemoeatu are among those that have been limited in practice.

Some good news for the Steelers is that Hines Ward (concussion) has participated in practice all week and should play this Sunday, giving Ben Roethlisberger a major target in the passing game.

In last week’s loss to New England, Roethlisberger threw for 387 yards with three touchdown passes and one interception, and has thrown for nine touchdown passes and just four interceptions since returning from suspension.

Rashard Mendenhall leads the Steelers rushing attack with 752 yards and seven touchdowns, equaling the number of rushing scores he produced a season ago.

The Steel Curtain continues to be a force to be reckoned with against the run, ranking first in the entire league allowing just 63.2 yards per contest. They have allowed just one player to gain over 100 yards against them in their last 43 contests.

For the Raiders, one thing they have in common with the Steelers is excellence on special teams. Jacoby Ford gained 148 receiving yards in their victory over Kansas City on November 7, the last game the Raiders played before their bye week, and also recorded 158 return yards. In doing so, he became just the second player in NFL history to produce over 140 yards receiving and 150 yards in returns in the same game; the other time it happened was by Pittsburgh’s Gary Ballman in 1963.

But the Raiders aren’t just winning because of special teams play. Running back Darren McFadden has finally found his footing in his third season in the league, rushing for 757 yards and totally 999 yards of offense.

Zach Miller has been a consistent passing target for Raider quarterbacks throughout his career, and with 200 career receptions now ranks fourth all-time in Oakland history for tight ends behind three all-time greats: Todd Christensen, Raymond Chester, and Hall-of-Famer Dave Casper.

The Raider Nation also feels good about their defense, ranked sixth overall in team defense entering this contest.

On the injury front, Miller has been limited in practice with a foot injury but is expected to play. Two other concerns for the defense are the health statuses of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (ankle) and defensive tackle John Henderson (foot), both of whom figure to be game time.

I like the Raiders more than I have in weeks past, I believe you got to take the Steelers SU, but the Raiders as the dog could be good as well as I think it will be a lot closer than the 7 ½ point spread.

Matt’s Free Prediction: Pittsburgh 26–Oakland 20

    Mainly because he plays in Oakland (who no one gave two thoughts about until recently) Zach Miller is an underrated TE in the league, though there are tons. If you put him on a team like the Chargers or Patriots, Zach Miller would be much more of a household name.
