After the Raiders took care of the Titans 26-16 in Nashville on Sunday, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith offered a bullish assessment of the AFC West club.

“The Raiders are the one team — outside of the Pittsburgh Steelers — that I believe the New England Patriots have to watch out for," Smith said.

The silver and black open the home portion of the schedule on Sunday, hosting the Jets at 1:05 p.m. at the Coliseum.

“The Raiders could actually make some noise because they handled their business on the road,” Smith said. “We all know what to expect to see from them in the Black Hole.”
