This will be just the fifth regular-season game between these teams since 1989.

Through two games, receiver Julian Edelman has 12 catches for 176 yards and a touchdown. 27 percent of Brady’s completed passes are to Edelman.

Raiders facts

Oakland won the last game between these two teams 31-19 in 2011 behind Jason Campbell's 344 passing yards.
