vs

When: 11/17/2013
Where: Reliant Stadium
Time: 12:00
Channel:

Keys to the Game-

1. Stay with Terrelle Pryor: The Raiders are ranked 5th in the NFL in rushing. Pryor is a huge reason why. He leads their team in rushing. We usually struggle against mobile QB's, especially this season (Locker, Luck, Kaepernick, and Wilson). Pryor is playing hurt however, so his running ability might be limited.

2. Force Pryor to pass. The piggyback off of what I said in number 1, the Raiders aren't a very good passing team and Pryor isnt a very good passer. If we want to win, we HAVE to force Pryor to beat us with his arm.

3. How about not taking the 2nd half off. We have done a good job with Keenum as starting QB in the first half. The 2nd half is where we have been horrible. Even if we are leading after the 1st half we don't need to take the 2nd half off. Better OL play would be great also.

DJ Haydens homecoming!

I really hope we keep this losing this up. Especially with all the teams around us in the standings winning, we're only 1 game out of the worst record!

I think Pryor and Jennings might have a field day, unless JJ gets consistent penetration

Pryor might not start. Either due to sucking this past month, or his sprained MCL. UDFA Rookie Matt McGloin may be getting his first NFL start this weekend. Yikes.

At this stage I just hope we suck out into a top 5 draft pick. Finish 7-9 and potentially Kubiak keeping his job would suck.

I think Kubiak keeps his job regardless. The real questions in my mind going forward are three-fold:

1) Is Keenum a viable NFL starter for this football team?

2) Does Wade retire?

3) Can we finally move beyond Joe Marciano on Special Teams?

Unfortunately DJ won't be playing this week. He has a groin injury. Crying or Very sad

We should get to 5-8 going into the last 3, but I would rather go 2-14 than even 8-8

Pryor is officially out for tomorrow, and Matt McGloin will make the start.

I have us finishing 6-10 this season. I think we will win our next 2 games then losing to the Pats, Broncos and Colts. I think we will will beat the Jags and Titans. If we go 5-11 or 6-10 that should be enough to pick in the top 10 and get Kubiak fired.

If we finish 2-14 and Kubiak keeps his job with Marciano and Phillips retires I don't forsee tuning into many games in 2014 if I'm brutally honest.

No.... seriously.... Trindon scoring TD's in DEN... Jacoby doing it in BAL... and our current returners look like the Keystone Cops....

How the heck does Marciano still have a job???
