What’ll be the outcome of the Raiders-Falcons matchup this weekend?
Ron Jones - CBS13 AnchorRaiders Lose @RonJonesReports
I’ve loved the Raiders since the early 1960’s. However, I have to use my head and not my heart when considering this week’s match up against the Atlanta Falcons. They don’t have a chance! Oakland’s defense has a lot to be desired and on offense they still struggle in the red zone.
Sitting at 4-0 Atlanta is firing on all cylinders, and I predict former Kansas Chief’s tight end, Tony Gonzales, is going to have a career day against the silver and black.
Final score: Falcons 34, Oakland 13.

The Raiders are coming off a bye week, so they should be rested and ready to put up a fight against the Atlanta Falcons.
I think Darren McFadden needs to have a big game. He’s the best player on the team and if he’s successful, the offense will be successful. And considering the amount of rushing yards the Washington Redskins put up against the Falcons last week, McFadden has a good chance to rack up some yards.
The defense also needs to step up. They have yet to make an interception and have just three sacks so far.
The Falcons are one of the better teams in the league and are still undefeated, but as we all know, this is the NFL and anything can happen.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a Raiders win, because they need it.
Final score: Raiders 24 Falcons 21.
