Buffalo got a necessary win last week to stay in the hunt in the AFC but it was only against the Jags. They might not be able to lose another game the rest of the way to have a shot.
Oakland also got a win last week against Carolina in what many thought might be a letdown spot for the Raiders. They are battling New England for the top spot in the AFC.
Kick off is set for 4:05 PM ET with Derek Carr hoping that his finger injury does not take the Raiders off course. They need him healthy to maintain their winning ways.
The Bills got the win they needed but it would have been nice to see them really dominate against Jacksonville. Shady McCoy had another big game with 103 yards and a couple of TDs.
If there was one player in the league you had to bet on to break a big play in a game it might be him – 75 of those yards came on one TD run that put the Bills on top. Tyrod Taylor was efficient.
The more I watch him the more I am impressed with his patience. His arm is bigger than he shows a lot of the time but he does not force things very often.
The Bills defense was just OK against a weak Jags offense.
They just kept things in front of them and that was enough to get the victory. That is going to be tougher to do against Oakland if Carr is healthy.
Buffalo’s strength on defense is against the pass. They guys who can cover and enough pass rushers too.
They are the top rushing offense in the league and they will look to hold onto the ball and keep the Raiders offense off the field.
The Raiders won another close game on Sunday nipping Carolina with a late FG. The big story of the game was how carr had to leave with a finger injury.
He returned and played through the pain though and might have picked up some extra MVP consideration.
He definitely wasn’t perfect but the got the job done and was able to find lots of targets along the way, connecting with 9 different receivers.
This was a see-saw game and the Raiders are proving to be the “it” team of 2016.
Even though they got the win it was another game where the Raiders defense got pushed around – 32 points and not all that many stops against Cam Newton.
Facing Cam somewhat prepares them for the shifty Taylor but unlike Carolina, Buffalo’s biggest running threat is not the quarterback.
I am not sure if a pass rusher can get in a zone but Khalil Mack has eight sacks in his last 6 games, with at least one in each.
You can bet he will be chasing down Taylor some and is athletic enough to get him.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Oakland -3
This line is surprising to me as traditional logic is saying it is only the location of the game that is deciding it. I think it will be more than that, assuming Carr is fully ready to go.
