The Raiders must reverse this slide without star quarterback Derek Carr, who broke a bone in his back in Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017, 16-10 loss in Denver and is expected to miss between two and six weeks. That forces E.J. Manuel into the starting role and puts added pressure on the rest of the offense to get moving after struggling the past two weeks. (AP Photo/Ron Jenkins, File)

The two most recent Super Bowl teams were at home against big underdogs. So the Patriots and Falcons lost. Dallas held the Rams to two touchdowns in Jerry's Palace. That seems like a sure bet. Nope, should have taken Los Angeles, which got a career-high seven field goals from Greg The Leg...
