One-fourth of the way through the 2010 NFL season, the Oakland Raiders find themselves in a familiar position: last place in the AFC West.
With a record of 1-3, Oakland has a long way to go to climb out of the division cellar. The San Diego Chargers will eventually start winning more often, the Kansas City Chiefs are the last unbeaten team in football, and the Broncos have won a couple of tough games.
Though the Raiders are in last, they still have played pretty well overall this year. They have lost tough games the past two weeks against Arizona and Houston, where they were competitive down to the final seconds of each game.
While they have certainly played better than their 1-3 record shows, the only thing that matters is that they only have one win.
Here's a report card style breakdown of the first quarter of the season for the Raiders, including areas where they have excelled and places they need to improve.
