Oakland Raiders: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#30)

Last week: 30 (+0)

Record: 3-6

The Raiders surrendered the biggest points total of the year last week in Baltimore and it was just as bad as it sounded. They allowed two special teams touchdowns (one off a fake field goal, one off a kick return) and blew two separate 4th downs thanks to botched quarterback/center exchanges. By the way, I don’t disagree with the Ravens decision to run up the score and go for the fake field goal. One, the Raiders had it coming to them after taunting the Ravens down by close to 30 points on the previous play. Two, I’ve always said, if you don’t want to get the score run up on you, don’t suck. It’s not unsportsmanlike. In fact, it’s more unsportsmanlike to cry because you can’t stop the other team. Three, the Ravens haven’t had a commanding win like that since week 1 so they needed it for morale.
