Two legit to quit throwing picks.
Six epic interceptions of catastrophic results . It’s like Carson Palmer and that Boller bum were throwing balls in a hurricane. The defense outscored the offense of the Raiders by two TD’s.

Success, not quite.
The Raiders vs Chiefs Review
BEST OF MAXIM
Oakland’s biggest two weeks of the season may come without any games being played. Carson Palmer is about to take a crash course in the Raiders offense. The team will practice the next two days during the bye week, and then Palmer will work separately with his receivers away from the coaching staff. “Yeah, I…

If anything was obvious during Oakland's loss to the Chiefs, it's that Carson Palmer and the Raiders WRs aren't on the same page yet. Will some extra work during their bye week cure the Raiders' problems?

With Week 7 in the books a few teams in particular - Washington, Cleveland and Oakland - will look to adjust after losing multiple players to injury. Like every week, fantasy owners need to not only identify the players thrust into more prominent roles but must access whether they'll have significant fantasy value.
Michael Bush, RB, OAK - Bush will be a highly sought after running...
Shutdown Corner wraps up Week 7 of the NFL season.
Worst tackling obscured by talented rookie
Carolina Panthers rookie Cam Newton is hard to tackle, more in a Ben Roethlisberger "he's tough to tackle" way than the Michael Vick "he's tough to get a hand on" way, but still difficult nonetheless. Newton looked like both those veterans combined, plus a little...
