MATCHUP TO WATCH

Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore vs. Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall

Moore caught six passes for 124 yards and a touchdown in last week's loss to Denver, and the Raiders will be looking for him to exploit Washington's 31st-ranked pass defense. If he's not intimidated by Hall's physical style and trash talking, he may be able to take advantage of the cornerback's gambling style of play.

THREE KEYS TO GAME

• If the Raiders can jump out to an early lead, it certainly improves their chances. In their three losses, the Redskins have been outscored 67-14 in the first half of games this season, forcing quarterback Robert Griffin III to try to dig them out of big deficits.

• Look for Oakland running back Darren McFadden to get back on track. Last week, he had just nine yards on 12 carries in the loss to Denver. But the Redskins are the third worst in the league in run defense, giving up 155 yards per game.

• The Redskins had to spend the week preparing for both Raiders quarterbacks, Terrelle Pryor and Matt Flynn. Pryor suffered a concussion against the Broncos, but he's expected to play.
