Bills vs. Raiders 2014: Online streaming, time, TV schedule and radio
Buffalo tries to keep playoff hopes alive against an Oakland team playing for pride.
The Buffalo Bills need to beat the Oakland Raiders to have any chance of making the playoffs. Buffalo is still alive in the playoff picture at 8-6, but will require some help to get in. Oakland will not be looking to provide any assistance, as the team has won its last two home dates and will be looking to make it a third on Sunday.
Buffalo has one of the best defensive fronts in the NFL. Led by the foursome of Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Jerry Hughes and Marcell Dareus, the Bills have amassed a league-high 49 sacks. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, Buffalo harassed Aaron Rodgers, forcing two interceptions in a 21-13 upset win. Offensively, Buffalo did just enough to win. Kyle Orton completed 14-of-27 passes for 158 yards and an interception, while Fred Jackson rushed for 71 yards.
Oakland will need to contain Jackson, something its defense has struggled with, ranking 25th against the run this season. Limiting Jackson’s effectiveness isn’t out of the question, as the Raiders held Jamaal Charles to 52 yards last week when facing the Kansas City Chiefs. However, the unit couldn’t put together a complete effort, as the Chiefs amassed 298 passing yards in a 31-13 win.
For the Raiders, rookie quarterback Derek Carr has been the bright spot in a dark campaign. Carr has thrown for 2,898 yards and 18 touchdowns despite a dearth of talent around him.
