Raiders @ Bengals

Recommended Posts



The Raiders are 18-10 all-time against the Bengals but are 6-8 when visiting Cincinnati, including dropping four of the last five. The Bengals have won three of four overall since 2006, including a 34-10 win in 2012 and a 33-13 win in 2015. Cincinnati is looking for its first three-game win streak in the series.

The Raiders beat Pittsburgh last week, 24-21, thanks to a last-minute touchdown catch by Derek Carrier. All three of Oakland's wins this year have come by three points or fewer, and the Raiders have been trailing in the final minute of regulation in all three.

The Bengals dropped their fifth game in a row with a 26-21 loss to the Chargers last week, their longest losing streak since losing 10 straight in the 2010 season. Cincinnati has lost eight or more games in three consecutive seasons for the first time since 2006-08.

The Bengals have the worst scoring defense this season, allowing 30.5 points per game, while the Raiders rank 31st at 29.8 points per contest. Oakland has allowed 20+ points in 14 consecutive games while Cincinnati has done so in eight straight. Those are the two longest active streaks in the NFL.

Derek Carr passed for 322 yards and two touchdowns against the Steelers while also posting his eighth consecutive game without an interception, passing Rich Gannon's seven-game streak from September 23 -- November 11, 2001 for the longest in franchise history.

Joe Mixon rushed for 111 yards and added 27 receiving yards on Sunday, surpassing 2000 scrimmage yards for his career. He is the youngest Bengal ever to reach that milestone, and he's the fifth player in team history to have 2000+ scrimmage yards through 25 career games.
