    Over there somewhere.
    Lost 30-20 to New England. Look at it this way 16 more weeks until they can start playing golf again.

    Yea, no kidding. Their offense is going to be much improved this year (assuming the o-line can do a reasonable job protecting collins), so it really comes down to the defense, which is a big question mark. I expect them to be right around .500.

    The Raiders showed a pretty decent run defense but the secondary may be a little suspect. They hung with the Pats until the 3rd quarter when the Pats got that sack/fumble/interception and then scored.

    The game was closer than I would have liked that's for sure. I was hoping to see Dillon shred the Raiders defense....but a win is a win. And Brady was looking sharp as a razor blade out there. 300 + yards 2 TDs and he spreads the ball out to all his recievers better than anyone in the league hands down.

    That's exactly what I was thinking when watching last night. Randy Moss is a valuable asset---and you can see what happens when Collins does get that protection and connects with him. Easy score. Hang in there, Raiders fans..........

    Raiders didn't play half bad. Obviously they are a much improved team since last season. Did anyone really expect them to win yesterday???
