Oakland dropped its last game 27–24 to the Texans. Jon Gruden's team led 21–13 after three quarters, but could not hold on despite quarterback Derek Carr playing his best game of the season. Carr went for 285 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. He'll need to be effective to get the Raiders back to .500 after this game. The Raiders went a respectable 2–3 in their five straight games away from Oakland, and the team will have five of its final nine games at home.
Detroit took advantage of one of the league's most suspect defenses in its last game, defeating the New York Giants 31–26. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Matt Patricia's team, with Matthew Stafford throwing for 342 yards and three touchdowns in the victory. The Lions gave up 322 passing yards and four touchdowns to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones in that game, though, and will need to be careful not to let Carr have similar success.
