It’s past the halfway point in this NFL season, and easy to see the 49ers and Raiders are on different roads, heading in different directions.

The 49ers, losers of eight in a row, get to meet the freshly beaten New England Patriots this week. The Raiders, winners of three in a row and 5-0 on the road, will be the home team to Houston in Mexico City.

While the 49ers jockey for draft position, the Raiders will try to emerge from a crowded AFC West and into the playoffs for the first time since the 2002 season.

How fast do things change in the NFL? In 2013, the 49ers narrowly missed playing in their second consecutive Super Bowl, and the Raiders missed the playoffs for the 11th straight season.
