The Raiders enter their third straight home game looking to build on their current playoff positioning. Yes, you read that right. As of right now the Raiders are sitting at the No. 6-seed in the AFC playoff picture and are getting ready to face the only winless team in the NFL.
With Oakland touting a winning record in the second half of the season for the first time since 2016, fans are more confident in the direction of the franchise than they have been all year.
Of fans polled, 90 percent are confident in the direction of the team. That’s a big jump from the end of last season, when only 45 percent of fans were confident that Jon Gruden was leading them in the right direction.
With the offense firing on all cylinders and the pass rush seemingly on the rise, the Raiders are the biggest favorites of any team this week.
