The Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions are both fighting for playoff places and in need of a win on Sunday

Despite injuries to Jason Campbell and Darren McFadden and a couple of questionable losses, the Oakland Raiders remained in pole position for the AFC West title and a playoff berth until last week, when they were destroyed by the Green Bay Packers. Meanwhile the Denver Broncos squeaked out a win against the Chicago Bears. The Raiders now trail Denver by one game. If they don't get back on track, they will likely point to their loss to the Miami Dolphins as the place where it all went wrong.

The Lions are the last team to defeat those Broncos, and are in a playoff race of their own. They can't win their division, but they currently hold an NFC Wild Card spot, ahead of the Bears and the Dallas Cowboys. They will be hoping to see the Carson Palmer that has played poorly over the last two weeks, and not the Carson Palmer who previously guided the Raiders to three straight victories.
