The San Francisco 49ers are back in action against the Oakland Raiders after a ten day layoff. The 49ers lost an ugly one on Thanksgiving to the Seattle Seahawks, and look to rebound against their Bay Area rivals. The 49ers are 7-5, and looking to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Raiders are 1-11, and looking to figure out what they have heading into 2015.
The game kicks off at 1:25 p.m. PT on FOX, and will feature fairly limited coverage. Northern California down to Bakersfield gets the game, as well as Reno and the rest of the northwestern Nevada. The 49ers are an eight point favorite on the road. The 49ers are 11-3-2 ATS in their last 16 road games, so we'll see if they can built on that. The 49ers have struggled much of this season to get anything going on offense, but this might be a game where the defense can do more than enough to take care of business. Look for the Raiders to try and establish the run with Latavius Murray, but the 49ers best chances to do damage will come when Derek Carr drops back to pass.
49ers inactives: QB Josh Johnson, WR Brandon Lloyd, DT Glenn Dorsey, CB Tramaine Brock, OT Anthony Davis, TE Vance McDonald, S Raymond Ventrone
Raiders inactives: QB Matt McGloin, WR Denarius Moore, CB Neiko Thorpe, G Tony Bergstrom, T Menelik Watson, TE Brian Leonhardt, DT S. McGee
