In the modern NFL, only four teams have gone through a winless season: the 1960 Dallas Cowboys, the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 1982 Baltimore Colts and the 2008 Detroit Lions. If the Raiders can’t win this weekend in Cleveland, they could be looking at an 0-11 start—and that’s when the pressure will start to mount.

Overall, the Oakland Raiders played a solid game against one of the best teams in the NFL for the second week in a row. But the Silver & Black still don’t have a win in 2014, and that falls on the defense again. The offense is showing life; the defense just is painful to watch every time out.
