Frustration Setting in With Carson Palmer and the Raiders

"Rough, rough, rough, rough game." 

According to ESPN.com, these were the words from quarterback Carson Palmer after a brutal 55-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Rough game is an understatement, as the Raiders defense got embarrassed for the second week in a row.

The 55 points given up by the Raiders tied a franchise record previously held by the San Diego Chargers in 1981. The 35-point loss is a tough one to get past, but the Raiders have no choice as they await perhaps a bigger test in Week 11.

The Raiders await the red-hot New Orleans Saints, who have won four of their last five games, including a 31-27 over their division rivals, the Atlanta Falcons. The victory over the Falcons handed them their first loss of the 2012 season.

To say the Raiders will have their hands full is another understatement. The Silver and Black defense will have to get it together because they are going against one of the best quarterbacks in the Nation Football League in Drew Brees.

Heading into Week 11, let's dissect the weakest links on the Oakland Raiders roster.
