At 3-10, the Oakland Raiders can't really say much has gone right this season. Least of all is there offense, which is ranked 25th in points and 30th in rush yards. That same offense ranked 16th in points and seventh in rush yards. Despite the step backwards, CSN Bay Area's Paul Gutierrez writes head coach Dennis Allen and offensive coordinator Greg Knapp still have confidence in the system they installed in the off season.

"There's been a lot of change, and when there is a lot of change, sometimes you don't get the results that you're looking for right away. But when you believe in something, and you stick to it and you know it's the right plan, it ends up working out."

Knapp added that he's used the same systems on enough teams to know that it can be successful. He added that he thinks the running game in particular has played better as the season went along. The Raiders next chance to improve their offense comes this Sunday when the host the Kansas City Chiefs. Kickoff from O.Co Coliseum is set for 1:25 p.m. PT.
