It will be an emotional contest today when the Oakland Raiders host the Cleveland Browns. This is the first home game for the Raiders since the passing of owner Al Davis while the drama surrounding running back Peyton Hillis may continue clouding the Browns.
The Raiders are coming off a 25-20 road win against the Houston Texans, despite being outgained by almost 200 yards offensively. The Browns were on bye last week, following a 31-13 loss against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4. Hillis could see an increased workload today considering the Raiders are 22nd in the league in rush defense. After carrying the ball just 10 times against Tennessee, it wouldn't be surprising to see Hillis get double that many carries. Oakland will try to move the ball on the ground as well. Darren McFadden leads the NFL in rushing yards with 519.
Two of the more storied franchises in NFL history, the Raiders lead the all-time series 10-8, though the Browns have won seven of the last nine meetings.
