Preseason football is something I tend to avoid. I don’t think anyone who watches it is a loser (I’m the guy who watched the live draw for the UEFA Champions League group stage yesterday. The whole thing) but it just isn’t for me. That being said, I actually tuned in to […]

In Part 1 we looked at the Raiders divisional opponents, and with a little help here and there, set the bar at eight wins needed to win the AFC West. The question now becomes can the Raiders top seven wins? Well they have four factors that seem to be in their favor, so let’s […]
