The offense in Oakland is no great unit, but the Raiders will only go as far as their defense takes them in 2013.
Giving up a touchdown with just ten seconds left in a four-point loss at home hurt the defensive marks, but the Raiders have to be able to score more as well on offense if they want to win consistently in the modern NFL.
Terrelle Pryor’s knee injury is getting better, but Oakland will stick with Matt McGloin at quarterback for Sunday’s home game against Tennessee.
Despite losing their starting quarterback to a season-ending injury, the Tennessee Titans won’t have a lot of quit in them when they come to Oakland next Sunday to play the Raiders.
The 49ers will go on the road this week to take on a Tennessee Titan team that is looking to save their season. The Titans are on a losing streak, but a very talented and dangerous team with their playoff chances still alive. Despite winning their past 3 the 49ers need a win just as badly as the Titans, and the winner of this game will have to earn it.
This time it was the passing game that set up the run and led to a 45-3 win over the visiting Buffalo Bills. Alex Smith finished with over 300 yards passing while the defense played another impressive game. With momentum on their side, the 49ers will take on the New York Giants next week in the biggest game of the year for San Francisco.
The Buffalo Bills head into Sunday’s game against the 49ers as underdogs. Buffalo had a rough end to last year and has had an up-and-down start to this year. For a team that has had problems with turnovers and no real way to move the ball other then on the ground, the Bills will have quite a challenge to beat San Francisco.
