Oakland Raiders: Predicting Top Offensive, Defensive Stat Leaders

If 2011 was an indication of things to come, the Raiders should have a prolific offense in 2012.

Darren McFadden and Carson Palmer have yet to step on the same field and the Raiders have a nice set of receivers, a fullback and a solid offensive line to complement them.
