Week 8 is the bye week for the Oakland Raiders and it couldn't have come any sooner. While the Raiders are 4-3 going into the bye week, they must improve a few things if they wish to win the AFC West.
The Raiders schedule going forward is somewhat easy, considering they play four teams with records worse than .500. They also face off against the San Diego Chargers twice, which could determine the AFC West champion.
Oakland has gotten off to a decent start, but Hue Jackson and the team have huge expectations for the season. Improvements must be made and there is no better time than during the bye week.
