Tale Of The Tape: Oakland Raiders At Denver Broncos
The Raiders have certainly shown some life in the second half of the season, and while it most likely won’t be enough to help Tony Sparano shed the interim label and become the full-time head coach, he does deserve credit for not letting this team give up.
Tale Of The Tape: St. Louis Rams At Seattle Seahawks
The Rams offense functioned at a much higher level in their Week 16 loss to the Giants with Shaun Hill at quarterback, and he is coming off a confidence-boosting 24-of-32 game for 290 yards with 2 TDs and 1 interception.
Tale Of The Tape: Cincinnati Bengals At Pittsburgh Steelers

Tale Of The Tape: Buffalo Bills At New England Patriots
