The Raiders are set to try and reach .500 at the the midseason point. They will face one of the best offenses in the NFL in the Eagles. The Eagles in turn will face one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Eagles: QB Mike Vick, RB Matthew Tucker, LB Jake Knott, OT Matt Tobin, OT Dennis Kelly, WR BJ Cunningham
Criner is active due in part to Brice Butler's two drops last week versus the Steelers and because Andre Holmes tweaked his hamstring in practice Thursday.
Martez Wilson was claimed off waivers from the Saints two weeks ago and makes his first appearance after being inactive last week.
The UC Davis marching band is on the field forming all kinds of things like the Raiders' shield, the shield face, and a helmet.
Ray Guy has lit the torch. Game on.
