It’s no secret that the Raiders secondary is awful, and that’s probably putting it lightly. They allow 293 passing yards per game, which is the second worst in the NFL.

Most of the attention will be on Calvin Johnson, and deservedly so, but Golden Tate is just as capable of putting up a big game.

Tate isn’t having a great year but no one on Detroit really is. Matched up against D.J. Hayden or David Amerson, this definitely could be the game where Tate has a huge day.
