Oakland Raiders vs. Cleveland Browns: Live Scores and Analysis for Oakland

The Oakland Raiders are the NFL's last winless team, but they have a great opportunity to change that Sunday when they visit the Cleveland Browns. Kickoff is at 4:25 p.m. ET from FirstEnergy Stadium. The live broadcast can be seen on CBS.

It makes sense that a team that's started 0-6 would make some major changes to the lineup. Oakland isn't doing this by choice—injuries have forced the coaches' hands—but there will be new faces getting a lot of snaps on defense for the Raiders.

Usama Young and LaMarr Woodley were lost for the season last week due to injury, and they'll be replaced by Brandian Ross and Benson Mayowa, respectively.

While both had struggled, Young had been more effective recently. Woodley, on the other hand, had been arguably the worst player on defense. Ross, and especially Mayowa, will have a great opportunity to improve on the play of the teammates they're replacing.

The offense has remained relatively healthy, but that hasn't translated to success on the field. Derek Carr needs to have a performance similar to the one he had in Week 6 for Oakland to have a chance. This means he needs to lead the offense to more than 14 points, something he's done only once this year. 

But while Carr has to play well, the game could come down to the performance of Darren McFadden. Sunday's matchup will feature the league's worst rushing attack versus the league's worst rushing defense, and something has to give. However, McFadden always has the potential for a breakout performance, and he has been running well in recent games.

If he taps into his potential, he'll be the deciding factor.
