The 2014 Oakland Raiders started out 0-10, but they split their last six games to finish 3-13. This was one game worse than the 2013 squad, which finished 4-12. The Silver & Black haven’t had a winning season since 2002, and they haven’t been to the playoffs since losing the Super Bowl that year. What’s next?
Raiders running back Darren McFadden will play against Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. He has not played since straining a hamstring early in the first half against Philadelphia on Nov. 3.
Adrian Peterson, LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and Matt Forte have all tested the Giants’ front seven and come up with no more than 67 yards. Peterson had it the toughest, being limited to 28.
A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday.

Fresh off their bye week, the New York Giants play host to the visiting Oakland Raiders at the Meadowlands this week. New York, winners of two straight games, was off this past Sunday, but lost ground in the division standings, since all of the other NFC East teams won their games.

Rex Ryan can’t stand the hideous number next to the Jets’ defense on the list of NFL rankings. There it is, a double-digit in black and white, screaming at him unlike anything he’s ever seen.
About a year ago, someone finally convinced me to give “Jersey Shore” a chance. It was five minutes of my life that I’ll never get back. I kind of feel the same way about Sunday’s Jets game.
There was no in-game snack on the sidelines for Mark Sanchez this time at the Coliseum. He was having enough trouble just trying to breathe correctly after getting hit in the face.
Darren McFadden ran past, around and through the Jets unlike any back has since Rex Ryan turned New York into one of the NFL’s biggest bullies after arriving two years ago.
Under normal circumstances, I would pick the Jets to win this game 31-10. But with the offense without Mangold and the likelihood of Sanchez being pressured into some mistakes, I the game will be a lot closer Jets fans would hope for.
Kenny Britt had the best game of his career two days after being involved in a bar fight, making three TD catches in a 37-19 win over the Eagles 37-19.
