Steelers Vs. Raiders: NFL Week 11 Game Capsules

The Pittsburgh Steelers can make a big step towards making the playoffs with a win this coming Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders figure to be one of the teams vying for a potential Wild Card berth with the Steelers were they not to win their respective divisions. The Steelers aren't possibly thinking along those lines though. Not after last Sunday night's debacle at home against the Patriots.

Here's a few figures, trends and notes on the two historic rivals' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both teams.
