The Oakland Raiders are now in sole possession of the AFC West lead with a 5-4 record!
They got off to a good start to the season at 4-2, then seemed to lose their way after starting quarterback Jason Campbell was injured. Former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer was then acquired but it didn't pay off right away because Palmer was just as lost as the team was.
But with first place on the line last Thursday, both Palmer and the Raiders seemed to have found themselves. It has been an up, down and up-again season to this point for the Raiders because the play of each unit has been uneven.
I now have grades for each unit.
