The Raiders are 3-2 at the bye. Knock on wood if you expected that after all the Silver and Black have been through.
We should hear be able to hear the refrigerator hum. Even wide-eyed optimists might not be reaching for pine after losing Antonio Brown and Vontaze Burfict and Gabe Jackson and Johnathan Abram, after getting dressed down in Minnesota to start a season-defining five-game road trip.
These Raiders persevered through all that, and managed to beat Indianapolis and Chicago away from Oakland, in consecutive weeks.
Go ahead and load up the AFC playoff picture.
