One of my favorite sayings, "It's All Relative" is the easiest way of putting it. 

There are several ways of determining a Raider victory.  First of all, if the game is determined by 7 points or less, in the opponents favor, then it is a Raider win.  Also, if the Raiders achieve victory over any team in the league, then any team that the previously defeated team has achieved victory over, is deemed as sub-par against the Raiders, without an actual game.  Hence, Oakland defeated Kansas City, Kansas City defeated Pittsburgh, and in turn, without even playing today, Oakland has defeated the Steelers. 

To all my fellow disheartened Raiders fans, I suggest following these simple equations to convince yourself that you are a fan of a winning team.  Good luck to all today, I hope we pull one out.
