Didn’t the Raiders just face the Cowboys? Yeah, they did. in the preseason.

There is a lot more riding on this game for the Cowboys than there is for the Raiders. The Cowboys, at 7-6, still have a real chance at the playoffs, but if they lose their chances would be slim to none. Even if the Raiders win, their playoff chances are slim.

At this point, the Raiders are closer to a top ten draft pick in April than they are to playing a game in January. That’s not to say they’ll be packing it in — there’s too much pride in these men to even consider that — but should they lose, that’s the most impactful result.

There are very similar teams in a lot of ways. Both had Super Bowl aspirations coming into the season and neither have been playing like it. Both teams are also missing key players either to injury or, in the case of Ezekiel Elliott, suspension.

One major difference is contributions from their respective rookie classes.

The Raiders have gotten next to nothing from their rookie class. The Raiders top two draft picks Gareon Conley and Obi Melifonwu are now on injured reserve and barely saw the field due to injury even before that. While the Cowboys’ starting cornerbacks for this game are second round rookie Chidobe Awuzie and third rounder Jourdan Lewis.

This one is in primetime on Sunday Night Football. It’s in Oakland where the Raiders are 4-3 this season.
