NFL Power Rankings: ESPN Ranks Raiders 26th

The Oakland Raiders remained at a steady 26th place in ESPN's Week 1 NFL Power Rankings. ESPN puts the final regular season record for Oakland at 8-8, and football scribe Ashley Fox believes that the number of questions surrounding the team make it hard to say what will come of the team.

So much is new in Oakland. New coach. New general manager. New results? (Fox)

It's the first year for head coach Dennis Allen, and general manager Reggie McKenzie takes over the long reign of Al Davis at general manager.

The level of talent is about the only thing we know about Oakland. But that comes with running back Darren McFadden fighting his own battle against a history of injury problems, and quarterback Carson Palmer looking to regain his old form of a few years ago.
