Both teams are coming off 7-9 seasons. And to say that those identical numbers have a different feeling to each the Raiders and Saints would be spot on. The Saints somewhat salvaged a rather embarrassing season with a last week win over Atlanta to avoid double digit losses for the first time in the Sean Payton era. While the same 7-9 mark for Oakland has Raiders fans thinking playoffs, seriously thinking playoffs, for the first time in nearly 15 years. Oakland finished the preseason with a 1-3 record and New Orleans was 0-4. The Saints looked not so good this pre-season and Oakland not much better.

First games of the season are always the hardest to get a feel for. First games are tough on players, coaches, fans, Vegas, etc. No one knows what’s going to happen, when that light clicks on and we can see a team come together and gel. There is no way to predict how good or bad a team will be this season on what they did in three basically meaningless preseason games.
