Oakland Raiders. 12. team. 28. . (3-13).

Please Detroit Lions and the NFL, take my advice. Do not sleep on this team. While from all outward appearances they appear to be your dad’s favorite train wreck, they are far from it.

Defensive rookie of the year Khalil Mack leads a young and hungry Raiders team that as you saw last year against the Kansas City Cheifs, can knock off anyone when the time is right. Quarterback Derek Carr is my biggest breakout candidate of the 2015 season. With the additions of Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, Carr will have some serious targets to work with this season.

Don’t be surprised to see this team spoil somebody’s season in 2015.
