Week 16 Crystal Ball: Raiders v.s Colts

Congratulations to our boys of the Silver and Black for keeping their playoff hopes alive for one more week today by sweeping the Denver Bronc-Hoes. I figured that we would win (I called it last week) but it was quite unsettling that the refs were trying to keep the game close with all the no calls of offensive holding on Denver and also the blatantly obvious incomplete pass that they awarded a TD to. Oh well.....WE WON....and that's all that matters doesn't it?

Looking ahead to our home game against the Colts next week, I have taken the liberty of providing a snap shot of the statistical match ups.

Analysis

In order for the Raiders to win this game, they HAVE to take advantage of the the Colts soft run defense and run the ball down their throats and pass when necessary (just like in the San Diego game). On defense, don't blitz Peyton too much because he is very good at find the open man. Rush 4 and keep a linebacker in zone coverage over the short middle and blanket the receivers.

Hopefully we can pull out a win and keep our playoff hopes alive for the AFC West Title Game against the Chiefs.
