I dont see the Raiders pulling out this upset I just can not see it happening. The Raiders may look like they have a high powered offense but do they? With the addition of Moss yes I agree they do look better on paper but is Collins going to be any better with him? Jordan is very raw and has not been the man before in his career he is basically a rookie. I see the pats winning by 14.

Hey it could happen and I maybe way off but I just can not see the Pats in the NFL opener on national TV loosing as much as I dislike the pats because they seem to beat us in all the big games they are a very good team and they are the team to beat.

If I'm not mistaken the Patriots have yet to lose a regular season game at Gillette Stadium.

New England-24
Oakland-13

I hate both teams, but the Raiders have won less lately, and aren't the media darlings the Pats are, so I'm going emotionally with the Raiders. I think Collins will test the Pats DB's deep, and the Pats will have trouble stopping the run, so I think they are a safe pick, although it's tough to bet against the Pats at home...if this was in the Coliseum, it'd be a no-brainer.

The Pats will have trouble stopping the run? A safe pick? A no-brainer if it was in Oakland? Huh?

The only reason for the Pats to lose this game would be the first week factor - there are a lot of aberration wins in week one. But the Pats have something called "defense," and the Raiders do not.

Pats 31 - Raiders 17
