Game Preview: Oakland Raiders Host Tampa Bay Buccaneers


The Oakland Raiders will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this afternoon, in hopes of pushing their record to 4-4. They are coming off a 26-16 road victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, in a game that the Raiders really showed up and proved themselves.

Oakland will be going against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that currently stands at 3-4 as well. The Buccaneers picked up a great win last week, as they beat the Minnesota Vikings 36-17. Josh Freeman picked apart the Vikings’ defense all night long, and the Buccaneers got a lot of recognition on the Thursday Night Football.

Carson Palmer has really started to click with his receivers and is running the Raiders’ offense beautifully so far, so let’s hope to see some more of it this afternoon. Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey should have some fun, as they will be going against a Tampa Bay secondary that is very weak, to say the least.

You won’t want to miss any of the action, so tune into FOX at 1:05 PT to see these two teams battle for a 4-4 record.
