The offense in Oakland is no great unit, but the Raiders will only go as far as their defense takes them in 2013.
These athletes rack up championships yet manage to remain completely boring.
For an NFL team to be playoff caliber, it needs to win most of its games at home and find victory half the time on the road: the Raiders are winless this year away from the Coliseum.
The Oakland Raiders had every chance to win Sunday in New York, but the offense really struggled when it mattered most in the loss to the New York Giants.
Oakland and New York take the field Sunday with a lot of injury questions and concerns, as both teams fight to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

This will mark the 3rd time the two have faced each other with both winning a previous meeting. Whichever player gets the better of their opponent Sunday will give their team a great chance at winning the game.
