Oakland's Fans Are Expecting A Win

New, comments

Oakland's record is 4-8, but they've won their last two games and ended a 17 game losing streak against AFC West opponents, so they are feeling pretty good about themselves. Saint over at Silver And Black Pride broke out a fondue reference while expecting a win on Sunday at Lambeau. He thinks the Packers run defense is weak, Oakland can stop RB Ryan Grant, and Oakland will grab a couple of picks. If QB Brett Favre does have a three turnover game, then Oakland could win like Chicago did at Lambeau in week 5. RB Justin Fargas ran pretty well two weeks ago at Kansas City against their average run defense, but did nothing three weeks ago against Minnesota's excellent run defense at the dome. Grant hasn't been stopped over the last few weeks while running against some very good run defenses, so it's a longshot that Oakland's really awful run defense is up to the task.

It's looking pretty good on the injury front but we'll have to wait and see until Sunday. CB Charles Woodson and DE Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila looked likely to play at Dallas, but both ended up missing it. QB Brett Favre is back taking about 70% of the snaps and should be fine on Sunday.
