Pro’s & Con’s: Here is one of the teams that will give Denver a run for there money probably for awhile and that would be the Raiders. Derek Carr played better his second year, his got really good WR's, and a good enough Running Back to get touches down. and what is there to say about Khalil dude is a beast 19 sacks last year impressive indeed that is by far there leader on defense now with the retired Woodson gone. Speaking of replacement I applaud them for getting Reggie Nelson of Bengals cause he did great for them last year 8 interceptions the best in his career. My biggest concern is in the middle of that defense not being more upgraded sure they got Bruce Irvin from Seattle, but look at the middle and other side someone like Phillip Rivers will take advantage of that.

Predicted Record: I really like the Raiders chances of going 9-7 and representing the Wild Card of the AFC. They are good enough to make it period.
