Week 16: vs Buffalo Bills
Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Derek Carr posted 27/56 for 202 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown during the game at Kansas City last week. Andre Holmes (12 targets for 5/70/0 receiving) led the team in receiving last week, while James Jones (11 for 8/57/1) and Mychal Rivera (12 for 7/39/0) were all three into double-digits territory regarding targets during Week 14. Even with nearly sixty passes attempted, Carr remained close to 200 yards passing during the game - the Raiders aren't throwing down the field much while Tony Sparano is the head coach.
The Bill's pass D is fifth in the league averaging 210.1 yards allowed per game, with 14 TDs given up balanced by 19 interceptions (second in the NFL) and 49 sacks generated (first in the NFL). This is one of the best all-around pass defenses in the NFL, folks. They limited Aaron Rodgers to 17/42 for 175 net yards, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -10 yards. This is an impressive group that tastes blood in the air - it's hard to move the football against the Bills' secondary.
This looks like a bad matchup for the Oakland offense.
