The Bengals are on the road this week to face the Raiders in Oakland.

The Raiders have been a weird team so far this season. They have won four of their last six games to really place themselves into the battle with the Chiefs for the AFC West. Their offense hasn’t really done anything too special as most of their stats are very middle of the road, but rookie running back Josh Jacobs has been excellent in his first season.

Meanwhile, the Bengals are hoping rookie quarterback Ryan Finley can get something going against one of the worst ranked defenses in football. They also will have to hope that Joe Mixon can maintain the momentum he created last week with his first 100 yard rushing game.
