Eagles vs. Raiders 2013: Game time, TV schedule, trivia, online streaming and more

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

Hopefully it will be a California Dream in Oakland for the Eagles.

The Eagles are set to take on the Raiders in a game that features two teams that are trying to find their way back to respectability. At 3-4, the Raiders have had several peaks, valleys and Matt Flynn this season, but are still in a position to have their best season since they went to the Super Bowl in 2002. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor has an arm but is also a fantastic scrambler similar to Michael Vick. The 6-foor-4, 232-pound passer is lethal one the ground and has really come into his own this season. In Week 8, he set the record for the longest quarterback run in NFL history, with a 93-yard trek to the end zone against the Steelers.

The Eagles will start Nick Foles against Oakland, in what will be a redemption game for the young passer. He had an atrocious performance in his last start against the Cowboys, but if he can bounce back, Foles may hold on to the starting gig. If the Eagles defense can continue to improve, the Eagles may pull off the victory.
