Research Notes

  • From Elias: Going into this season, 52 teams have started 6-0 or better in the Super Bowl era. 24 of them reached the Super Bowl (46.2%).13 won the Super Bowl (25.0%).

  • Carson Palmer completed 10 of his first 11 passes outside the numbers in Sunday's game against the Falcons. However, Palmer's 12th attempt was an underthrown pass with 2:55 left to Denarius Moore that Asante Samuel returned for a touchdown to give the Falcons the lead. With the exception of that one play, Palmer had his best game of the season throwing outside the numbers.

  • The Raiders defense kept the Falcons' passing game under control on Sunday. Matt Ryan was 12-of-22 with all three of his interceptions on throws deeper than five yards downfield. Through his first five games, Ryan was the only qualified quarterback above 70 percent on those throws.

  • The Raiders had a chance to knock off the Falcons on Sunday because they dominated nearly every statistical category.But, they are still the Raiders:

  • In the first half, Carson Palmer was 7-for-8 for 118 yards and a touchdown against four or fewer pass rushers (14.8 yards per att). Entering today, Palmer ranked 29th among 33 qualified quarterbacks with 6.1 yards per attempt against four or fewer pass rushers this season.
