5 realistic expectations for the Oakland Raiders in Week 12
By Brad Weiss
The Oakland Raiders take on the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and here are five realistic expectations for the team in Week 12.
Last weekend, the Oakland Raiders finally won a game, which was only their second of the season. In their Week 11 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals, the Raiders got a last-second field goal to beat the Cards, earning their first road victory of the season.
On Sunday, Oakland will look to win their second road game this season, and win two straight for the first time all year, when they travel East to take on the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens inserted rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson into the lineup this past weekend, as he filled in for the injured Joe Flacco, and led the team to a victory over division rival Cincinnati.
These two teams will battle it out inside M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, and for the Raiders, they are serious underdogs in this one. Still, they showed they have some fight left in them against the Cardinals, and should come to play against a Ravens team looking to eek their way into the playoff discussion.
Here are five realistic expectations for the Raiders in Week 12 at Baltimore.
