The San Francisco 49ers have not only been one of the best teams in the league and are solid at both ends, but they cover numbers as well. The Las Vegas Raiders are a dumb team that finds ways to lose more times than not, and the benching of Carr pretty much means they've thrown in the towel on the season. The feeling inside the Raiders locker room can't be great, and changes are likely coming. The 49ers should blow the doors off here.
