WEEK 9 TNF: OAKLAND RAIDERS vs SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

What a week! How did everyone make out? I believe I went 11-3 again! Not bad. Ok, so tonight, the NFL may have lied and told us that the Thursday night games were going to be better. Then again, the expectation was that these two teams playing tonight would be better than they are currently. Both teams lost last week. Better of the two worsts is the obvious winner. Let’s pick one…..

OAKLAND RAIDERS vs SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS:

Only one win a piece. Geez! How do you pick out of these under performing teams? Nothing seems to be going right for the Raiders. They seem to be getting rid of anyone that can help them. Maybe it’s a ploy to rebuild younger for the move to Las Vegas? It is anyone’s guess. The fact of the matter is that the Niners could be without starting QB C. J. Beathard. He injured his wrist ad thumb during the game against Arizona last week. This would mean undrafted free agent, Nick Mullens, would take the helm and Tom Savage would be his backup. The Raiders could capitalize on this. The problem is that the Raiders cannot close out games. QB Derek Carr has been far from what he was a couple of seasons ago. With WR Amari Cooper now in Dallas, there is little to expect on offense. So will it be the fresh QB or will it be the “seasoned” QB? Tossing a coin up on this one.

San Francisco 49ers



This may have been the hardest game that I have had to pick all season. This was a serious toss up. Give me your pick. That’s all I have for tonight. Good luck to your teams and picks.
