The Oakland Raiders want to be bullies.

Well, a bunch of preppy kids from New England just transferred to Black Hole High for the weekend.

If the Raiders want to be feared when they roam the AFC hallways, then it is time to take Tom Brady's lunch money, and stuff his pasty, dimpled face in a locker.

Speaking of violence, nowhere is there more excitement in the NFL this week than Raider Nation, as Oakland prepares to square off with New England in what should be a shootout at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. 

The Raiders are coming off a satisfying 34-24 win over the New York Jets, while the Patriots are still recovering from a 34-31 loss to the Buffalo Bills on a last second field goal.

This match may be a tipping point for both teams, as Oakland looks to build on its current momentum, while New England hopes to turn things around after its narrow defeat. 

Here are four reasons why Oakland will beat the New England Patriots this Sunday, improve to 3-1 on the season, and why it won't seem like much of an upset.
