The Oakland Raiders are on off to their best start in franchise history with a record of 9-2 and are on a franchise high six game win streak. Last week they won a close game against the Tennessee Titans by a final of 13-21. A win by the Raiders this week and a loss by any of their division rivals would lock up the AFC West for them.
The Dallas Cowboys have had their struggles this season after not losing any games last year in the regular season. They are in 3rd place in the NFC East with a record of 6-5. They won last week against the New York Giants in a blow out game, winning 45-20. A win this week for the Cowboys could, depending on what happens in other games, put them one game back of 6th place in the NFC.
