The Raiders are looking to extend their winning streak to four games.
They will be looking for a second straight win over the Niners in their final matchup of the season.
The Raiders will host the Nineties in Oakland on Sunday at 4 p.m.
Here are a few takeaways: 1.
Oakland has a big advantage with its run defense.
The 49ers were ranked sixth in rushing yards allowed per game and have been in the top 10 for rushing yards since Week 7.
The defense allowed 4.2 yards per carry against the Raiders, ranking first in the NFL.
The Oakland defense has allowed just one touchdown pass all season.
Quarterback Derek Carr has played well in the last three games.
The first two games of the streak have been his best.
He has completed 60 percent of his passes and thrown for 300 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams and Panthers.
The Niners are trying to get their offense back.
The team has been ranked second in total offense and third in scoring.
The offense has scored 20 points or more in three of the last four games, including a 27-16 win at New Orleans on Oct. 23.
Quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick (27 touchdown passes) and Alex Smith (27 touchdowns) have been dominant in the run game.
The Raider offense has gained more than 4,000 yards in six straight games, the longest such streak in the league.
The two teams combined for three turnovers in the first half.
The San Francisco defense held the Raiders to 17 total points, which was the lowest total in the game.
In the third quarter, the Raiders got outscored 20-0.
In a game that should be close, the defense kept the Ninos from scoring.
The offensive line has been impressive.
The unit has held the Ninets to only four sacks in the four games the Raiders have played.
The defensive line has held opponents to just 11.5 sacks per game.
The running game has been solid.
The front seven has been stout, rushing for a league-low 4.6 yards per rush.
Running back Latavius Murray (6.5 yards per attempt) and tight end Jared Cook (3.8 yards per catch) are the only Raiders to have 100-yard games.
Murray has the team’s longest receiving streak, having had a season-high eight receptions in the win over Carolina.
QuarterBACK Derek Carr hasn’t thrown an interception in the games the teams have played, but he hasn’t been efficient.
Carr has thrown three interceptions in two of his last three starts, and his passer rating of 79.9 is second worst in the history of the Raiders.
The NFL has changed.
The game will be played on the road.
Last year’s game at San Francisco was played at Levi’s Stadium.
The matchup will be decided by a point spread, which will likely come down to the final possession.
The last time the Raiders played at home was in 2009.
