Raiders' Maxx Crosby, Trayvon Mullen named to PFF's Team of the Week

Raiders' Maxx Crosby, Trayvon Mullen named to PFF's Team of the Week

Somewhere in the Bay Area right now, Raiders general manager Mike Mayock must have a pretty big smile across his face.

Oakland has won three games in a row, and Week 11 saw a pair of rookies Mayock drafted -- cornerback Trayvon Mullen and defensive end Maxx Crosby -- be named to the Pro Football Focus Team of the Week.

Mullen was credited with three defensive stops, one interception and a pass breakup in the Raiders’ 17-10 win over the Bengals.

Crosby registered four sacks, a forced fumble and eight total pressures en route to also being named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

The Silver and Black will try to extend their winning streak to four in a visit to MetLife Stadium on Sunday with a clash against QB Sam Darnold and the lowly Jets.

The Raiders badly need a win Sunday at home against the Titans.

But Vegas and several NFL experts aren't on Oakland's side.

Despite the game being played at the Coliseum, the Raiders are underdogs according to most oddsmakers.

With a win over the Titans, the Raiders will keep their slim playoff hopes alive. A loss gives Jon Gruden's team almost no chance of reaching the postseason.

Each of the last four games of the season are important for the Raiders (6-6), but Sunday's clash with the Titans (7-5) is vital to keeping their playoff hopes alive.

If the Raiders lose Sunday, the final three games might not be as important.

At the moment, Oakland's postseason odds sit at 7 percent. A win boosts their odds to 15 percent, but a loss would give the Raiders just a 1 percent chance of making the playoffs.

Entering Sunday's game at the Oakland Coliseum, the Titans hold the No. 7 seed in the AFC while the Raiders are No. 8, so the contest will have serious implications on the playoff race.

The Raiders' offense took a big hit Friday when star right tackle Trent Brown was ruled out due to a pectoral injury. On defense, Jon Gruden and Co. need to make sure they slow down Tennessee running back Derrick Henry in order to have a chance to win.
