Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell has a respectable 89.1 passer rating, is on pace to throw for more than 3,700 yards and ranks in the NFL's top 10 for completion percentage. Numbers like that have helped bring some balance to Oakland's run-dominated offense and have people talking about the Raiders as potential playoff contenders. Yet the chatter about the Raiders is more about how Campbell's ill-timed mistakes helped cost them a game last week against New England. Plays like the momentum-shifting interception in the end zone near the end of the first half and another thrown into the hands of Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork are what's keeping Campbell from joining the upper tier of NFL quarterbacks.
