• If the offensive line gives up one sack or fewer in each remaining game, they will keep pace with the 1982 Raiders, who allowed only 23 sacks in a 16-game season to set the franchise record. The Raiders' line has allowed 19 sacks this season, tied for sixth fewest in the NFL.

• If QB Derek Carr completes 11 passes, he will pass Matt Ryan (265) and  Rick Mirer (274) for the ninth most completions by a rookie since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. Carr needs just 23 completions to pass Sam Bradford (286) for the second most completions through by a rookie through the team's first 13 games.

• If Carr throws his career high by tossing four touchdown passes, he will tie Sam Bradford (18) for the 10th most by a rookie since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.

• RB Darren McFadden needs four receptions to pass Charlie Garner (211) for the second most by a running back in franchise history.

• If FB Marcel Reece catches two passes, he will tie Harvey Williams for the sixth most receptions by a Raiders running back.

• Look for WR James Jones to continue his streak of catching at least two passes  in every game this season. Last week marked the first time in Jones' career he has caught in a pass in each of his team's first 12 games.

• If Jones catches four passes, he will tie his career high of 64 receptions, set in 2012.

• If TE Mychal Rivera hauls in three passes, he will tie Rickey Dudley (82) for the second most receptions by a Raider tight end in his first two seasons.

• If DL Antonio Smith records 1.5 sacks, he will reach the 2.5 sack mark for the 10th straight season, joining Jared Allen, Julius Peppers, DeMarcus Ware and Trent Cole as the only players to do so in each season since 2005.

• If FS Charles Woodson picks up his second sack of the season, he will tie Lawyer Milloy (21) for the sixth most all-time by a defensive back.

• If Woodson intercepts his 59th career pass and 21st as a Raider, it will position him in 11th place on both the all-time and franchise lists.

• If Woodson returns an interception for a touchdown, he will tie Rod Woodson for the NFL record with 12 pick-sixes for his career. Any defensive touchdown would give Woodson the all-time record with 14, breaking the three-way tie with Rod Woodson and Darren Sharper.

• If either LB Khalil Mack or CB TJ Carrie force a fumble, he will join Charles Woodson (two in 1998) and Tommy Kelly (three in 2004) as the only Raider rookies to cause multiple fumbles.

• If K Sebastian Janikowski attempts a field goal, he will pass Olindo Mare and tie Jim Bakken (447) for 19th place on the all-time attempts list. With just 10 total points, Janikowski would tie Mare (1,555) for 10th in NFL history.
