The Raiders haven’t won more than two straight in the regular season since winning five straight in 2002. A list of the five back-to-back wins in the past seven years:

2008

12-21: RAIDERS 27, Houston 16
12-28: Raiders 31, Tampa Bay 24

2007
12-2: Raiders 20, Kansas City 17
12-9: RAIDERS 34, Denver 20

2006

10-22 RAIDERS 22, Cardinals 9
10-29 RAIDERS 20, Steelers 13

2005
