Joshua: Raiders will close out their AFC South schedule with this Week 12 matchup. The Raiders have beaten the Jacksonville Jaguars and Texans. In Week 1, they nearly pulled off a road upset against the Indianapolis Colts. How do you feel about the competition that you’ve faced against AFC South opponents?

Chase: All of those games were very close games and it does not surprise me coming from an AFC South talent pool that may be underrated due to the Texans managing to find a way to lose each week and Jake Locker being hurt. It is easy to point to this division as being top heavy with the Colts, but the Titans and Texans have led their way with their defense and stuck with a lot of games. I expect that to continue in Oakland on Sunday in a very interesting battle of 4-6 AFC teams.
