How Many Games Will The Oakland Raiders Win This Year?

Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.

6 NFL Teams That Could Be Worse Than The Raiders

National sportswriters don’t appear too bowled over by the Oakland Raider roster additions of NFL veterans LaMarr Woodley, Matt Schaub, Justin Tuck and Maurice Jones-Drew. Pundits peg the Raiders as perhaps the worst team in the league, and ESPN has Head Coach Dennis Allen rated as the worst in the NFL. The Silver and Black also compete in a division where every other squad made the playoffs last year, prompting some to say they are already out of contention this season. Really? It may take everything breaking right for Raider Nation to make a playoff appearance, but surely there are teams with less upside than Oakland. Here are a few of the potential challengers for the NFL cellar.
