The Patriots took care of business Sunday night and appear poised to dominate the AFC this season.
There might have been a scare early in the year thanks to defensive struggles but they appear to have figured things out on that side of the ball.
Oakland is still relevant for now but they can’t afford too many more mistakes. They already have more losses than last season.
If they can get their offense humming than there is no reason that can’t be in this game with the defending champs.
New England Patriots
New England had an easy go of it while dispatching Denver on Sunday night.
Even though the hole team played well we saw that even the New England special teams could be a difference maker for the team.
Dion Lewis led the team in rushing but also ripped off a 103 yard kickoff return. Despite the presence of stars you just never know who is going to step up for the Pats.
Tom Brady was efficient in throwing for three touchdowns against the supposedly strong defense of Denver.
Rob Gronkowski and Brandin Cooks were the top targets. I am still waiting for the Patriots to unlock Cooks’ potential.
There is no way to sugar coat it, the New England defense was bad the first month of the season. Just once giving up less than 30 points in a game.
Over their current five game winning streak they have not yielded more than 17 points in any one game, a predictable turnaround.
The true level of this defense is somewhere in the middle. They are sound schematically but there are not a lot of elite talents in this group.
The Raiders are coming off their bye this week and looking to add to the good feelings of winning two of their last three after losing four in a row. Despite their struggles they are not out of it in the AFC West.
After they breezed through the season a year ago nothing has been easy this year. The addition of Marshawn Lynch was supposed to alleviate pressure on Derek Carr but the running game has struggled.
An interesting development has been that Jared Cook, the TE is the top receiver this season. Over a couple of big time wideouts.
Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree are not far behind Cook but it says a lot about how this offense is just not in sync this season.
The defense has performed as expected which is to say that it is below average. It seems like other than the drafting of Khalil Mack they have swung and missed on this side of the ball. Mack needs help.
Oakland has yet to intercept a pass this season. It almost impossible given how much teams throw in the modern NFL.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Patriots -5.5
Everything looks sharp for New England in this one. It is a “road” game but technically a neutral site contest down in Mexico.
NFL Free Week 11 Score Prediction: Patriots 33 – Raiders 24
This is obviously not a normal week for either team but I think the Pats will be be focused for this one.
They are on a really good run right now and unless they are sloppy Oakland will not be able to keep up with the champs.
