Oakland Raiders’ Situation Looks Somewhat Optimistic Moving Forward
Coming off a bye week with a 2-4 record, the Oakland Raiders are ready to get some wins under their belt and turn their season around. The question is, can they?
Don’t forget about the San Diego Chargers who are at 4-3 and truly rejuvenated all around the football field. It’s amazing what a new coaching staff can sometimes do.
It seems like an uphill battle for the Raiders having to face all three of these teams one more time this year. They did defeat the Chargers 27-17 in Week 6 though, and they could do it again.
The rest of the Raiders’ schedule truly isn’t that tough. Over the next seven weeks they don’t face an AFC West opponent and they could win six of those games.
Defensively Oakland is coming together and improving every week. The return of Jared Veldheer and Stefen Wisniewski to the offensive line will give quarterback Terrelle Pryor added protection and improve the Raiders’ potent rushing attack.
This team is only going to get better. With another seven weeks to mold and grow as a unit before they face a division rival, they could possibly upset the Broncos or even the Chiefs as well. I wouldn’t put anything past this team.
In no way am I saying that the Raiders are going to win anything, just that it’s a possibility they could turn this thing around and secure a wild card spot in the playoffs.
