Tom Cable gets his first opportunity to take over the circus that is the Oakland Raiders. Some believe that with Lane Kiffin the Raiders will be better off. But the fact of the matter is that the team was at least playing competitive football with Kiffin before he was fired. That should carry over and we like the fact that Oakland is coming off a bye, while the Saints had to practice on a short week after losing to the Vikings at home. Still, with Marques Colston expected to return to an already powerful New Orleans’ offense, we like the Saints to roll this week. We predict the Saints over the Raiders 27-13.
