Oakland hosts Cleveland in a battle of 3-8 teams in Week 13
With both teams currently 3-8, the loser of this game will only have the Jaguars and the Chiefs to look down on in the standings. The Raiders will be looking snap a four-game losing streak, while the Browns will be trying to capitalize on a 20-14 win against Charlie Batch and the Steelers.
During their four-game skid the Raiders defense has been atrocious, giving up over 42 points per game, including 34 to the Bengals last Sunday. The offense hasn't helped much as Carson Palmer has thrown seven interceptions in those games and Darren McFadden hasn't played in the last three. McFadden remains questionable for the game, with Marcel Reese in for duties if he can't go.
Cleveland picked up its first win against the Steelers since 2009, but haven't been able to close out games this season. They have blown leads against the Eagles, Giants and Cowboys late, and were unable to make comebacks in two narrow games against the Ravens. With better fourth-quarter performances, this could be a different Browns team.
