08:03 AM ET 09.29 | Tom Brady's memory is in fine shape. [Brady] hates losing so much that he remembers what it felt like the last time he played a football game in the Bay Area -- and that was almost nine years ago. "The last time we played in Oakland it wasn't a pleasant flight home," Brady said. "Hopefully, we can redeem ourselves this time around." The Raiders, still stinging from a loss in the "Tuck Rule" game in the playoffs the previous season, beat the Patriots 27-20 in November 2002 at the Coliseum en route to an eventual AFC title. Through a quirk of scheduling, and the fact Brady was out for the season after knee surgery when the Patriots visited the 49ers and Raiders in 2008, he hasn't played anywhere near his hometown of San Mateo since.

As long as we don't see 4 picks it should be a good trip.

I'm sure "Cheatin' Pats" will be brought up on this thread.

It's just the natural order of things.

No.

I didn't pick Washington to lose Monday night either.




Hope I'm wrong again.
