Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: The Oakland Raiders’ scary 0-16 question (Shutdown Corner)

There are many stats that sum up how miserable the Oakland Raiders’ 0-6 start has been, but we have something better than a statistic for that. Darnell Dockett. The injured Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman was at his trash-talking finest on Sunday, poking fun at Raiders fans as the Cards sealed up their 24-13 win. Cardinals DE Darnell Dockett Trolls Raiders Fans With Sign On Whiteboard http://t.co/Kt9LTrbPWL pic.twitter.com/MRHbHQCNXT — ThePostGame.com (@Post_Game) October 21, 2014 If you can’t see it well, it’s a hand-written message from Dockett to the fans reminding them that the Raiders are 0-6, and the worst team in the NFL. Sadly, both are indisputable facts at this point. Even worse for the Raiders, they just got past what is the relatively easy part of their schedule. And while it’s ridiculously early under most circumstances to pose the question, it needs to be asked: Is 0-16 possible for the Raiders? [ Join FanDuel.com's $2.5M Week 8 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top 21,905 teams paid ] Raiders fans are thinking that Cleveland might be a possible win, but this is a Browns team that will be playing at home and refocused after losing to the Jaguars. The Browns are a seven-point favorite, so a Raiders win can’t be considered likely. But if the Raiders don’t win this week, then when? Here’s what’s coming for the Raiders, who have the toughest schedule I’ve ever seen: Week 9: at Seattle Week 10: vs. Denver Week 11: at San Diego Week 12: vs. Kansas City Week 13: at St. Louis Week 14: vs. San Francisco Week 15: at Kansas City Week 16: vs. Buffalo Week 17: at Denver Oh my. Where’s the win in there? The Raiders will be underdogs in every game from here on out, and probably by at least a touchdown in almost every one of those games. The home game against Buffalo might be less than a touchdown. Maybe the St. Louis game will be a tick under a touchdown. But that’s about it. Odds are the Raiders get a win somewhere. It’s mathematically tough for an NFL team to go 16 games without winning at least once, even if they’re underdogs in all 16. And this team isn’t without any talent – you’d hope all these old vets general manager Reggie McKenzie signed this offseason could get at least one win – but it still will be scary until they post that first win. There’s only one winless team remaining in the NFL. That’s a pretty lonely place to be. And based on the schedule, it’s possible the Raiders will be there for a while. Here are the post-Week 7 power rankings: 32. Oakland Raiders (0-6, Last Week: 31) The performance against the Chargers two weeks ago has to give them hope that a win is on the way. 31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-5, LW: 30) Depending on what kind of draft pick the Buccaneers could get, it would make sense to trade Vincent Jackson. Seattle should be first in line if Tampa Bay is serious about dealing him. 30. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6, LW: 32) There’s a huge difference between zero and one win. 29. Tennessee Titans (2-5, LW: 28) They lost to a bad team. A bad team with Colt McCoy at quarterback. 28. Washington Redskins (2-5, LW: 29) Jay Gruden didn’t come out and say it, but by tabbing McCoy to start next week if Robert Griffin III isn’t ready, he effectively said the team no longer thinks Kirk Cousins can be an effective NFL starting quarterback. You wouldn’t bench him for McCoy if you did. Maybe Cousins gets a chance to change that perception, but that’s where we are now. 27. Atlanta Falcons (2-5, LW: 25) Julio Jones has 311 yards and no touchdowns in Atlanta’s last four games. The Falcons are 0-4 in their last four games. These two sentences are closely related. 26. New York Jets (1-6, LW: 26) Here’s one problem with the Percy Harvin trade: Are the Jets really going to get a good look at him before deciding if he’s worth that $10.5 million base salary next season? It’s really tough to learn an offense when you join a team right before Week 8 of the regular season. 25. Minnesota Vikings (2-5, LW: 24) A nice bright spot: Rookie Jerick McKinnon had 103 rushing yards against a good defense. That’s not going to make them forget losing a game with one second left, but it was nice. 24. New York Giants (3-4, LW: 23) Eli Manning played well. They ran the ball well enough. The defense turned a big Tony Romo interception into a short touchdown. And they still lost by 10. That can’t feel too comforting. 23. St. Louis Rams (2-4, LW: 27) I can’t say this enough: Calling a fake punt on your own 18-yard line to ice a win over the defending champs is an all-time great call. It was a gamble but not reckless, because it’s pretty clear the Rams knew based on Seattle’s punt return scheme that they’d have that pass wide open. 22. Houston Texans (3-4, LW: 20) They really had Monday night’s game under control, then it got away in such a hurry. And despite a terrible second quarter they lost by just a touchdown. They can’t afford to drop games like that. 21. New Orleans Saints (2-4, LW: 19) That would have been an enormous win, getting a victory at Detroit with virtually nothing from injured tight end Jimmy Graham. But now it’s just a 2-4 hole they’re in. 20. Chicago Bears (3-4, LW: 16) The Bears’ offensive rankings: 17th in yards per game, 17th in yards per play, 18th in points scored. With all those weapons to work with, that’s hard to comprehend. 19. Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3, LW: 21) For about 27 minutes of the first half against Texans, it looked like their season was in an irreversible slide. Maybe that turnover and scoring flurry will spark something.
