STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Game matches two head coaches with history together: Chicago’s John Fox and Oakland’s Jack Del Rio. Del Rio served as defensive coordinator under Fox with Carolina and Denver. … Raiders have won two straight after season-opening loss to Cincinnati. … Sebastian Janikowski figures to tie Hall of Famer Tim Brown for first on Raiders’ games played list with 240. … Derek Carr passed for 314 yards last week, making him first Oakland QB to throw for 300 or more in back-to-back wins since Rich Gannon in 2002, his MVP season. … RB Latavius Murray ran for career-high 139 yards against Cleveland. … WR Amari Cooper leads NFL rookies in catches (20) and yards receiving (290). He is one of two rookies (DeSean Jackson) over past 30 years with 100 or more yards receiving in two of team’s first three games. … S Charles Woodson joined Hall of Famer Darrell Green (19) last week as only players with interceptions in 18 or more consecutive seasons. … Chicago got shut out for first time since 2002 last week. … Bears traded pass-rush specialist Jared Allen to Carolina, dealt LB Jonathan Bostic to New England, and cut S Brock Vereen this week. … QB Jimmy Clausen was 9 of 17 for 63 yards last week with Jay Cutler (hamstring) sidelined. Cutler practiced on limited basis Wednesday. … RB Matt Forte ranks second in NFL with 276 yards rushing. … LB Pernell McPhee and DE Jarvis Jenkins each had two sacks last week. Fantasy Tip: Anyone who does not have Cooper may want to trade for him given his production and fact he will be going against shaky secondary.
