The Raiders have just one win this year, but have covered two of their last three. They should have beaten Atlanta on the road last week, as they picked off QB Matt Ryan three times in the first half. Carson Palmer threw for 353 yards including five to Denarious Moore for 104 yards. The Raiders should be able to run on the Jags with Darren McFadden, who is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. Part of the problem has been that the Raiders have faced some very good run defenses in Pittsburgh, Miami and Denver. Jacksonville ranks 30th against the run (163ypg) and 23rd against the pass (261ypg). Oakland should get their 2nd win.
