  1. Classic…

    “The Jaguars will try to pull off the upset without wide receiver Stephen Burton (concussion), quarterback Blaine Gabbert (hamstring)…etc”

  2. The Raiders starting line up might quite possibly be the most banged up in the NFL.

    Yet this band of “misfits, under-achievers, and journey men” according to most NFL “experts” have been truly competitive and have improved the overall team dynamic and production.

    The defense has made leaps and bounds in terms of pass and run stoppage. The offense led by Terrelle Pryor has improved dramatically, not only from his mobility standpoint, but also by his passing. He is getting better as the young season progresses. His passer rating proves that from a statistical stand point.

    Now the Silver and Black need to make a bold statement and whip that KC ass in narrowhead. That would definitely be the upset of the week and put the NFL on notice that this team is for real.
