Darren McFadden will smiling again Sunday when the Oakland Raiders are at home against the New England Patriots.
McFadden has been dominating defenses every week, and he is the NFL's leading rusher with 393 yards on 60 carries.
McFadden won't be smiling because the Raiders are assured a victory. Actually, the Raiders are 5.5-point underdogs, but McFadden will crack a smile when he touches the ball for the first time.
The Patriots have only given up 202 yards in three games, but New England hasn't faced a team built around a rushing attack like the Raiders.
McFadden has also done some damage catching passes with 84 yards and a touchdown on the season, which doesn't bode well for the Patriots.
Only the Packers have given up more receiving yards to running backs than the 271 yards that New England has allowed.
While this may not be the best matchup for a running back in Week 5, McFadden has been atop the league and will have another dazzling performance Sunday.
