New England Patriots
Oakland Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen has just eight wins in 35 games leading the Silver & Black. With the team’s Week Four matchup in London against the Miami Dolphins suddenly looking like a winnable game, it’s natural to ask if losing this one in front of an international audience will cost Allen his job with the team.
There are two things going for the Oakland Raiders this week, as they prepare for their Week Four game in London, England: first, they play the Miami Dolphins, and second, the game is at a neutral site.

Diehard fans may want to close their eyes: with an 0-2 start and staring at possible 0-6 start now, the Oakland Raiders will be hard-pressed to avoid two ugly fates in 2014: they could end up worse than the 4-12 record they posted last year, and they could end up as the worst team in the NFL.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-2 with no relief in sight, as they travel to New England to take on the Patriots in Week Three. That’s not the remedy for what ails the Silver & Black, of course, so it could be an ugly week for the team. Be prepared, Oakland fans, for a disastrous road trip.
It was an ugly, ugly day for the Oakland Raiders in their 2014 home opener, as the offense couldn’t get anything going until late, and the defense did a Swiss cheese impression from the opening whistle.
