Don't Give up the Big Play- After giving up big plays like it was their job early in the season, Matt Patricia's defense is starting to gel once again. They'll want to continue that tonight.
Red Zone Defense- In their last 3 games, the Raiders have scored touchdowns on 71.43% of their trips to the red zone. For their last three games, the Patriots' defense has allowed touchdowns to their red zone guests 28.57% of the time. Assuming the Raiders make it into the red zone, one of these stat lines will change.
