The Oakland Raiders have a new head coach, for now, and they’ve just had their bye week. How will they fare against the 4-1 San Diego Chargers at home this week? Well, the Bolts are on a roll, and they look very good. The exact opposite can be said of Silver & Black, so don’t expect things to suddenly get better for Oakland now that Dennis Allen has been fired.
For the 49ers to avoid a 3 game losing streak they will have to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. San Francisco should be able to win, especially at home, but not if they play like they have the past two weeks.
The first time the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints met in Week 13, it was for NFC Supremacy. Now in Week 19, the true force of the NFC will be revealed.
The Raiders continue to have many key players on the injured list. Once again they’ll be without running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson. The Saints have few injuries and with a nearly full roster, they’ll be a tough challenge for the Silver and Black
The New Orleans Saints were 0-4 in September, as the team was demoralized by the Bountygate scandal. Now, the Saints have won four of their last five under quarterback Drew Brees. A win against the Oakland Raiders will make it a season-high three straight victories for New Orleans.
