The Oakland Raiders showed improvement on both sides of the ball last week, but they still couldn't get back into the win column after their bye.
The Jacksonville Jaguars can't fare much worse as they return to the field.
Oakland tries to build on a near-upset of the NFL's lone unbeaten team Sunday when it hosts a Jaguars team that's had plenty of time to stew over one of the worst losses in franchise history.
Coming off a 37-6 loss at Denver on Sept. 30 that quarterback Carson Palmer called a "good, old-fashioned butt-whupping," the Raiders (1-4) rolled up season highs with 474 total yards and 149 yards rushing while picking off their first three passes of the season in last Sunday's 23-20 loss at Atlanta.
Palmer responded from throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown with 2:40 left by leading an 80-yard drive that Darren McFadden capped off with a 2-yard scoring run, but Oakland lost again as Matt Bryant nailed a 55-yard field goal with one second left.
