Do the Raiders get into their opponents heads?


It has come to my attention that teams that play the Raiders don't fare so well the following week.  Look at division rival Kansas City, they went to overtime against the Raiders, but the following week, they got trounced by lowly Denver.  Is this an aberration?  Let's take a closer look at the Raiders opponents, and how the fare the following week, after the jump.

So, after teams play the Raiders, they are 1-8 the following week.  I'm taking Buffalo to beat the Steelers this week!

Is this just weird, or do you all have an explanation for this?
