Through nine games, the Raiders are 4-5 on the season. Oakland has won two of its last three games.

New England is 7-2 on the season and has won five games in a row. After a disappointing 2-2 start, the Patriots have rattled off consecutive wins over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the New York Jets, the Atlanta Falcons, the Los Angeles Chargers and the Denver Broncos. The Patriots have already had their bye. That came back in Week 9.

Overall, the Patriots seem to have hit a solid mid-season stride. Though we all know that New England football takes it up a notch post-Thanksgiving, we could see a small regression from this team this week. Injuries and playing in an unfamiliar venue could impact the Patriots this week.
