Detroit is coming off of a win against the pitiful Giants, and sit at 3-3-1 with a lot of potential to their season. Matt Stafford has been masterful for the Lions in 2019, leading them to a fifth-place ranking in adjusted net yards per pass attempt on the year. They should probably put the ball in his hands more often, as Detroit is tied with Seattle for the 17th-most pass attempts in the league. Unfortunately, the Lions are just as good at giving up points as they are at scoring them. They allow the tenth-most adjusted net yards per pass attempt on the year, and have the 23rd-ranked defense by Football Outsiders DVOA. Some more production on that side of the ball could elevate the Lions to playoff status fairly quickly.

Oakland has made major improvements in 2019, but unfortunately they have come almost exclusively on the offensive side of the football. The Raiders are a top 10 offense in both the pass and run games based on DVOA, and rated eight overall. The defense is another story. The Raiders allow the third-highest adjusted net yards per pass attempt, and rank 28th in defensive DVOA. This game is intriguing given the dichotomy between offense and defense present on both teams. It is possible whoever holds the ball last will prevail.
