About three weeks ago the Oakland Raiders looked like they were on their way to an AFC West title. They looked like a team that could challenge the Patriots. They look like a team that was going to be a legitimate Super Bowl contender and that all that changed when quarterback Derek Carr broke his leg and it was not known how much his back up Matt McGloin was going to do anything as he later injured his shoulder and was out against the Denver Broncos in the last regular game last Sunday.

McGloin might have given the Raiders a little bit of a chance because he has a little experience in the NFL he started a few games here and there in the past and goes and hurts his shoulder and now your talking about a rookie quarterback starting his first game of his NFL career Conner Cook which happens to be this Saturday’s Wild Card playoff game in Houston. Talk about a real nail biter.
