Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

32. Oakland Raiders (LW: 32)

The Raiders have become the easiest team to rank: last. Last in offense. Last in wins. Last in the league. Everything the Raiders have done this season appears worse than their previous attempt, and even when they hold the once-potent offense of the San Diego Chargers to 13 points, they manage to only score six of their own. Every week, we continue to believe that a win is eventually in the cards for the Raiders, but every week the faith in such a statement dwindles. Now, after playing eight straight teams with winning records, they will face their ninth when the rival Chiefs come to town on Thursday Night Football.
