Right now, the Oakland Raiders are 1-10, and if the season ended today, they’d get the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. There’s not a clear-cut stud or even a lot of depth at the top of the draft next year, so the Silver & Black need to be very smart about their next draft.
The Cleveland Browns are tied for first in the AFC North. The perennial doormat of the division dominated its intra-division, intra-state rivalry with the Cincinnati Bengals last night, scoring first and never trailing en route to a 24-3 victory.
