The Las Vegas Raiders have not won a football game in quite some time, as they dropped their final two games before the bye week. Those games, against potential AFC Playoff teams, could have spell the end of their playoff hopes, but with the AFC wide open this season, they are still alive going into Week 14.

Their opponent in Week 14, the Minnesota Vikings, have also dropped two straight going into this one, and like the Raiders, are coming off their bye week. Earlier in the week, Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell announced that Joshua Dobbs would get the start at quarterback for them on Sunday, despite the fact that Dobbs has six turnovers in his last six games.

This game will be a huge one for Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, who spent so many years playing against the Vikings in the NFC North. Adams is a guy who is going to get his numbers no matter the competition, but to win this game, the Raiders will need other players, some who fly under the radar, to take care of business.

With Sunday's game looming, we dive into five under-the-radar Raiders who must have a big game this weekend against the Vikings.
