The Raiders and Lions get set for a Sunday afternoon matchup inside Ford Field with the Raiders looking to get themselves back into the playoff hunt.
Oakland dropped a home game to the Vikings, who have surprised just about everyone and are a first place team. The loss knocked Oakland to under .500 as they’ve now dropped 2-0.
As for the Lions, they absolutely shocked everyone with an outright win in Lambeau Field against Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
The Raiders fell for a 2nd straight time after they couldn’t figure out how to stop the run game once again.
Vikings RB ran all over them in a 30-14 loss on Sunday. Peterson led a Minnesota backfield that tallied 263 rush yards, which comes as a bit of a shock considering how good Oakland has been against the run this season.
Oakland was allowing just 96.9 rush yards against this season prior to the Vikings outburst.
QB Derek Carr threw for 302 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday’s loss, but that came at the expense of two interceptions. With those two interceptions, Carr now sits at 6 on the season, which is phenomenal compared to his 21 passing touchdowns.
He’ll being going up against a defense that allows over 260 pass yards per game. Expect him and WR Amari Cooper to really take their chances down field.
The Lions 2015 season has been one of the worst in franchise history. However, for the first time all season long, the Lions can really go into the following week with their heads held high.
The Lions went into Lambeau Field and upset the Green Bay Packers 18-16 on Sunday. With the win, the Lions claimed victory against Green Bay for the first time in 24 years.
It was also the first time this season that their defense looked like an actual defensive core.
Detroit’s defense has allowed 29.0 points against this season, but they had QB Aaron Rodgers looking foolish at times. They continued to put endless pressure on him and held firm when the Packers did put drives together.
As for the offense, QB Matthew Stafford completed 24 of 38 passes for 242 yards to go along with a pair of touchdowns and an interception. He finally looked in sync with WR Calvin Johnson, who finished with just 81 yards, but the duo came up clutch on many occasions.
Look for them to do the same and take some chances down field as the Raiders allow 26.8 points agianst.
