The 2017 NFL Trade Deadline is less than two weeks away. The Oakland Raiders should consider dealing for one of these big-name players before it’s too late.

In case you weren’t aware, the 2017 NFL trade deadline is just around the corner. Halloween will present the Oakland Raiders with their final opportunity to bolster their roster by acquiring a player from another team. Based on what we’ve seen so far, they may need to do so.

If it wasn’t for their heroic final-play victory against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, the Raiders may already have been disregarded as a playoff contender this season.

Denver Broncos: 3 Takeaways vs. Chargers in Week 7

The Los Angeles Chargers shut out the Denver Broncos, 21-0, and here are three key takeaways from that Week 7 game.

Since the their Week 5 bye, the Denver Broncos dropped two consecutive games to the New York Giants and the Los Angeles Chargers, dropping them to a 3-3 record with their playoff hopes slowing drifting through their fingers. Week 7’s game against the Chargers was quite different then the team’s previous three losses, because the offense wasn’t able to put any points on the board. The offensive line was beat at the point of attack and like last week against the Giants, the quarterback play was horrible.

The Chargers were the first to put points on the board, when Travis Benjamin took a 65-yard punt return for a touchdown, giving them a 7-0 in the first quarter.

New York Giants: Davis Webb has nothing to learn playing this season

New York Giants rookie quarterback Davis Webb should not see the field this season regardless of how many games the club loses.

Nobody saw this coming. That’s not an overreaction, overstatement or dramatic comment meant to attract attention or draw a click. Go read season previews produced last July and last August, and you’ll find multiple respected individuals predicted the New York Giants would compete for more than a spot in the postseason tournament. Those who examined New York’s depth chart saw a championship roster.

Everybody was wrong. Even before injuries plagued different aspects of the team, the Giants failed to locate wins and play as advertised.

The Chicago Bears defense harassed the Carolina Panthers as the offense did minimal work to pull off a win. Three takeaways for the victors from Week 7.

Well, that sure was an interesting game, wasn’t it? The Chicago Bears took on the NFC South leading Carolina Panthers at Soldier Field in Week 7 The Panthers dominated the stat sheet in every category but one: turnovers. And that one was the difference in the game.

The Bears offense again was anemic. The unit spent most of the game playing the three-and-out game. The game came down to whether the defense could hold off Cam Newton and the Carolina offense. Thankfully, it did.

The defense performed great.

Cleveland Browns: Defense dominant in loss to Titans

Even though it came in another losing performance, the Cleveland Browns defense showed just how good it can be and soon.

The Cleveland Browns lost their seventh in a row and much of the attention will be focused on the quarterback position, especially with the revelation that rookie DeShone Kizer was out on a Friday night at a bar until 1:30 a.m. (The horror!). Let everyone else discuss three quarterbacks that aren’t currently the answer. I’m focused on a fantastic performance by a young defense that dominated the Tennessee Titans for 4.5 quarters.

While the offense turned the ball over three times between two quarterbacks and scored nine points, the defense held the 11th ranked offense to just 269 yards of offense through 4.5 quarters of football.

Atlanta Falcons: 3 Miserable takeaways vs. Patriots in Week 7

The Atlanta Falcons lost their third-straight game on Sunday night to the New England Patriots. Here are three miserable takeaways from the game.

The Atlanta Falcons are still searching for their first win in the month of October, as they lost a crushing football game to the New England Patriots in Week 7. While there weren’t too many people expecting the Falcons to come out on top against the Pats, no one thought that would happen because of their ineffectiveness on offense.

Needless to say, the Dirty Birds never got going on offense, made some horrible in-game play-calls and were embarrassed by New England on a national stage once again.

For fans of Atlanta, this game couldn’t have gone worse.
