    Week 14 hosts a game of pure emotion and pride when the Oakland Raiders hosts the Washington Redskins. Both teams are mathmatically and by all means otherwise, out of the playoff race in their respective divisions. Due to a dozen of different reasons per ball club, both teams have failed to match their win records with the character in which they've played their last couple of games.

    This week I'm predicting (not that my predictions mean anything) that this will be a game of the week. Look for a shootout and smashmouth game at the same time.


    Redskins 29
    Raiders 27

      Yeah, I really like this match up.  You got the Redskins who are coming off a game in which they should have won (the Saints know this too) and so are pretty pissed and a confident and rejuvenated Raiders team that probably think they're ready to turn back the clock and beat the 1985 Bears after beating the reigning Super Bowl champs (minus Rothlisberger and Polamalu). 

      I agree.  The Redskins are going to want this more than the Raiders, but the Raiders are playing much better, not to mention that Tom Cable got a vote of confidence from Al Davis himself yesterday to remain the head coach to begin the 2010 season.  It will be a close game wink

        The Dreaded Vote of Confidence?

    Yea I'm a fan of both these teams, not to mention they both suffer from a medolsome owner but I also think with a few corrections (more on the part of the Raiders)these teams can ressurect their ball clubs in the future.

    These last few games of the '09 season are important to ball clubs like the two of these. I think they each want to end this season on a high note and they know that the other club is playing with emotion.

    ewwwwww...someone's gonna get hurt!!! *hopefully not serioulsy, maybe like an ankle sprain* lol.

        No matter the seasons' outcome I believe Zorn will be gone in 2010.

          yea, and that will result in yet another disappointing season if they let him go. I think they should keep the personnel they have so far and improve the O-Line in the offseason. It's obvious now that the offense has improved drastically, that protection for Jason Campbell was the major issue.

          I think the Skins can win out the remainder of the season with the only competition coming from the Chargers in week 16. There's no reason as to why we shouldn't score 30+ against the Giants and Cowboys in week 14 and 15.

          I just hope Dan Snyder let's this season fade and build on what we already have in place and make no major changes. Zorn is a great coach despite his sluggish start.

    Yes, that's right, the Redskins score 34 points in the win over the Oakland Raiders in a week 14 matchup. I know the common response will more than likely highlight the opposing team's competitiveness in the game in the first place.

    However, the Redskins have played very well as of late in the season albeit the remaining games mean virtually nothing in terms of securing a playoff spot.

    In the Redskins' lose to the Eagles in week 12, they scored 24 points (a then season high). The next week against the Saints they recorded 30 in yet another loss despite aggressive play.

    This week finally the Redskins win in a 34-13 defeat of the Oakland Raiders, the current season high in point production for the offense.

    Next week they play the New York Giants (7-6) who are on a losing streak heading into the game. This could be a perfect trap game in continuing the blunder of the season which is of the Giants in spoiling their run for the playoffs.

    The Redskins bost a league leading pass defense and red zone defense and continue to put starters out of the game for extended periods (not that I'm congratulating injuries). The week after the Giants game the Redskins play another NFC east opponent in the Dallas Cowboys then cap off their season with a visit to San Diego.

    For now, the Redskins should focus one game at a time and not get ahead of themeselves. Continue in the points scoring and hard aggressive defense.

    I hope they average forty points the next two weeks.
