The Oakland Raiders host the winless Cincinnati Bengals in a Week 11 matchup that should favor the Raiders in every category. This is a Raiders team coming off two straight huge home wins against teams with playoff caliber rosters, after beating the Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Chargers.

The Raiders are making a real push for a playoff spot, something that could not be said at this point in the season since 2016. Not only are the Raiders 5-4, but they have two very winnable games coming up the next two weeks, as they will head to New York to  take on the Jets after this matchup Sunday.

The Raiders cannot look past the 0-9 Bengals, but it is impossible to not expect a win in the matchup, especially when being optimistic about a playoff push. On the other hand, looking past the Bengals and somehow losing the game would be the worst thing to happen to the team all season.

The Oakland Raiders are riding high off the momentum of back-to-back wins and from sitting just a game behind the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs. The talk of playoffs is no longer wishful thinking or a laughing matter, as the season stands that goal is very much within reach. To steer towards the postseason, the path continues on Sunday against the 0-9 Cincinnati Bengals.

Derek Carr and Jon Gruden have remained humble nonetheless, and they are not taking any chances of being overconfident heading into Sunday. After all, the Raiders did fall to the Bengals last season on the road, and Carr personally has been on the other side of pulling the upset (he lost his first 10 games in his rookie year, and knocked off Kansas City for his first regular-season win).

Nonetheless, numbers don’t lie and the season rankings could very well tell the story of what’s to come on Sunday. Cincinnati has been abysmal against the run, while its the Raiders’ strength. The Bengals are starting a rookie quarterback, while Oakland’s defense could be coming into its own.

In his inaugural season in the NFL, Josh jacobs has solidified himself as the favorite for Offensive Rookie of the Year, as well as one of the premier running backs in the league. Jacobs has been the fulcrum of the Raiders’ offense, maximizing every opportunity behind an offensive line that has been stellar.

Sunday’s matchup against the Bengals is a dream scenario.

The Raiders are ranked eighth in the NFL in rushing, meanwhile, Cincinnati is ranked dead last in rushing yards allowed to date. The Bengals are last in rushing yards allowed per attempt, rushing yards allowed per game, and second-to-last in rushing touchdowns allowed. It’s not rocket science to fire up Jacobs as your RB1 in fantasy leagues for Sunday.

Josh Jacobs has yet to notch three rushing touchdowns in a game this season, emphasis on “yet.” On Sunday, against the Bengals defense that seemingly can’t stop anyone in the ground game, Jacobs will get a triple rushing touchdown performance.
