Panthers vs. Raiders preview:
After starting off the season with a 1-5 record, the Panthers reeled off two straight wins to sit at 3-5, but lost two weekends ago to the Chiefs despite leading 17-0. Cam Newton was all smiles during the Panthers two-game win streak, but needs to step up is game if Carolina is to have any shot at the playoffs. After a win last weekend against the Saints, Carolina is back in business, but still needs to find plenty of luck down the stretch.
It's Da-Raiders! Oakland has won four in a row, and eight games in all so far this season. The Raiders got lucky on Monday night against the Texans. A few blown calls by the refs later and the Raiders escaped with a win to take control of the AFC West. Derek Carr tossed three touchdowns, giving him 20 on the season.
The Panthers and Raiders have played five times in history, with the Panthers holding a 3-2 advantage.
Panthers vs. Raiders prediction:
The Raiders are rolling. The Panthers on the other hand are struggling this season, after an appearance in the Super Bowl just a few months ago.
Now Carolina has to deal with an explosive offense. Can the Panthers do it? Well, they handled the Saints last weekend. Can they make it two in a row?
Oakland 30, Carolina 17
