This is based on things being equal and all teams being healthy with injuries factored in this because that is to big of a variable to predict.

For arguments sake we are gonna split the AFC West games except for SD ending up 4-2 in the division.For arguments sake we are gonna be 3-5 on the road. Last year and the Raiders went 5-3. 3 wins on the road seems reasonable.Last year the Raiders went 6-6 against the AFC while giving one away in Buffalo and laying an egg in Miami.This year the raiders are going to be 8-4 against the AFC. Home we were 3-5 that trend in going to changes this year. The Raiders go 6-2 The energy form Raider nation will finally pay off.

Sunday, November 4 TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS 1:05 p.m. FOX WIN 5-3
Tampa Bay came out to the west coast and got rolled I'm not sure they have done enough to change their recent down turn. They are experiencing a fair amount of upheaval. Raiders win convincingly!

After 4 wins in a row we have a let down east coast roadie.
Sunday, December 30 at San Diego Chargers *1:15 p.m. CBS WIN 10-6
See week 1, same result! San Diego is a late season fodder we just need to finish what we started week.
This in my opinion is not that big of a stretch we can win 10 games and have a shot for the playoff. Harbaugh's a tough minded coach and he made a huge impact this year it's the Raiders turn. Dennis Allen will have these guys ticking like a fine timepiece and it's about time.
