The Lions take on the Oakland Raiders in week eleven.

The Raiders have proven me wrong in the preseason. I thought this would be an up and coming team and they have proceeded to rank 17th in offense and 18th in defense during the preseason. Still this has trap game written all over it. This is the kind of game that a winning team loses for looking past the opposition. The 2013 Lions would have totally lost this game.

With the culture that Jim Caldwell has instilled in the Lions franchise, it’s actually hard to see this team looking past anyone or being cocky about anything. The Lions approach this game with caution and pull out the win. Win (7-3)
