The Oakland Raiders put up 20 points last week against New Orleans, including just seven in the first half. Their first string offense struggled to protect Matt Flynn, who still put up 124 yards on 12-of-16 passing.

Oakland still hasn't named a starting quarterback though its assumed that Flynn will win the job. He has to continue to progress and get in synch with his wideouts.

As for Chicago, they just lost third-string quarterback Matt Blanchard to a broken knuckle. He'll be replaced by Jordan Palmer, who will play the fourth quarter. This is the problem for the Bears, who also signed veteran Trent Edwards as insurance. Palmer's brother Carson started for the Raiders last year.

Both will play in this game and the Raiders will use Terrelle Pryor and either Matt McGloin or rookie Tyler Wilson to clean up.

Expect the Raiders to play to win.
