I couldn't find an accurate injury report for the Raiders. The report I found just had players listed as injured, but didn't say anything about what their practice status was. Oh well.
Throw me in the camp of pessimistic Seahawks fan right now. I'm glad as shit that they're 4-2, but until the offense gets better I'll always be nervous entering a game. Add to that the fact that Oakland put up 59 points last week...and, yeah, I'm really nervous about this game.
My Hawk of the week is Big Mike Williams. It might feel like I'm fully jumping on the bandwagon here, but Football Outsiders has the Raiders as #32 against #1 wide receivers. I like those odds. 9 catches, 125 yards, and 1 TD. However, I think Mebane and Jennings still don't play on Sunday, and with WT3 ailing, Roy Lewis gets the start and gets fairly torched. Raiders win 24-14. Boo.
Congrats to Jason_D for his fearless Olindo Mare prediction. Here's the link to the point prediction spreadsheet: Link. I've been bumped out of the top spot. diehard_82 looks to have a stranglehold now. Well done.
