We spoke with Levi Damien of Silver and Black Pride to discuss the Oakland Raiders' surprisingly successful season and how they match up against the Detroit Lions this week. Check out his responses below:
1) How surprised are you by the Raiders' relative success this season?
2) Derek Carr appears to be having a breakout season. What do you attribute his success to and where do you rank him among NFL quarterbacks right now?
3) Lately the Oakland defense seems to be struggling (allowed 30+ points in three straight games). Where is this team vulnerable on that side of the ball?
4) Who are a few Raiders that many NFL fans may not have heard of, but could make a huge impact against the Lions?
5) What is your prediction for the game on Sunday?
