As the Oakland Raiders enter the final stretch of the 2013 season, a quick glance at their schedule shows some missed opportunities.
After catching his 50th touchdown as a 49er last Sunday, Vernon Davis finally got some recognition. While nobody who follows the team doubts his talent, in his 8 years as a 49er he has been named to only one Pro Bowl, and more times than not is left out of the conversation as the best tight end in the NFL. This figures to change this season though as he can no longer be ignored.
The Seahawks have had the upper hand this season since they defeated the Niners in Seattle earlier in the season, but the Niners will get their chance to make a statement at home.
It’s not often that the Oakland Raiders go into a game with a clear quarterback advantage over their opponents, but that’s the case here.
The division rivalry between the 49ers and Seahawks has been completely one sided as of late. Seattle has won the past two meetings and will look to make it 3 straight in a game that holds playoff implications for both sides.
The New York Jets may be 5-7 on the year and looking dysfunctional again, but they’re still tough beat at home where the Oakland Raiders will travel this weekend for a Week 14 matchup.
The 49ers swept their season series against the Rams due to the play of the defense. While all phases of the team chipped in, it was the San Francisco defense that ensured that they maintain control of their playoff destiny as the 49ers won their second straight game.
Despite the long list of names on the 49ers injury report, the fact remains that they are getting healthier. The Rams, on the other hand have a few players getting over concussions that may not be available Sunday.
Oakland wasn’t able to capitalize on a 21-7 first-half lead as the team lost to the Dallas Cowboys in the traditional Thanksgiving Day game.
Both teams are mostly healthy, but there are some concerns here and there for each squad in a short week of rest and recovery from the previous game.
The big news around 49er camp this week is that Michael Crabtree has been activated. For a team that has struggled to throw the ball, the return of their only Pro Bowl receiver from a year ago is big news, and makes San Francisco a well-rounded team.
