Oakland Raiders Record Says "The More I Seek You, the More I Defeat You"

Honor Warren Wells TheTorch@dbintayaelSenior Writer IIMarch 18, 2012

Remembering the words of a song, "The more I seek you, the more I love you" inspire words for the Oakland Raiders, which could say, "The more I seek you, the more I defeat you, opponents."

Below is a list with two columns. The first column represents Raiders' wins, and the second represents opponents' wins. Each row represents a different team.

As you can see, the numbers look good when you tally the number of wins the Oakland Raiders have over the opponents that they have played more than 10 times.

The teams that have tied the Raiders in the all-time head-to-head series are the Buffalo Bills, the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers.

The teams with close encounters and a one game difference in the totals are the Chicago Bears, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lions.

Of the 25 teams in the category of having played more than 10 games against the Raiders, the Raiders have won 18 out of 25 of the all-time series. This is 72 percent. That percentage suggests "the more the Oakland Raiders play a team, the more likely they are to defeat the team." Of course, this forecast solely depends on the limited data analysis. At least it gives us some insight on the situation.

The Oakland Raiders have a 66-percent chance of winning when their opponents are the Rams and Redskins. In both cases, the Raiders have won eight of the twelve games they have played against each of those teams.

Our advice: keep it up.
