Bills vs. Raiders preview:

The Bills got the win over the Bengals two weeks ago, but it came at a cost; both LeSean McCoy and Robert Woods suffered injuries in the game. McCoy suffered a dislocated thumb, but still played in the game against Jacksonville last weekend. He should be good to go for this week's game against the Raiders. Sammy Watkins also played in last week's game, catching three balls for 80 yards.

It’s Da-Raiders! Oakland has won five in a row, and nine games in all so far this season. The Raiders got lucky again, this time against the Panthers. Oakland built a 24-7 lead but surrendered 25 straight points and needed a late field goal to win. Derek Carr carried the team despite dislocating his pinky finger on his throwing hand. He threw of 315 yards and two touchdowns.

The Raiders and Bills have played 39 times in history. The Raiders lead the regular season series 20-17, but the Bills hold a 2-0 edge in the playoffs.

Bills vs. Raiders prediction:

The Raiders have been one of the hottest teams in the NFL. With five wins in a row, and a home game, you might expect them to dominate this Sunday, right? Wrong.

The Bills love to run the football, and they are really good at it. Oakland does not defend the run well. The Raiders are 26th in yards per game given up on the ground. Advantage, LeSean McCoy.
