Last week: 31 (+1) Record: 4-10 Net points per drive: -0.76 (30th) DVOA: -28.2% (30th) Weighted DVOA: -28.1% (30th) The Raiders shut out the Chiefs last week and still are tied for the league’s worst scoring defense. Aside from a weird win over the Steelers week 3, the Raiders wins have all come against the Chiefs (twice) and the Jaguars, who are the league’s worst teams right now. At 4-10 with games left against the Panthers and the Chargers, the Raiders look destined for 4-12. It’s not that those games are unwinnable, but I just don’t think they’ll win them.
