Revenge is supposed to be sweet, and there are several situations that present "sweet" opportunity this weekend. But, are teams capable of getting even, or do they simply not match up with previous tormentors?

    Patriots at Raiders (Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET): Talk of revenge, the "tuck rule" rematch on ESPN Sunday night has New England at Oakland. The Raiders and their fans still feel they were ripped off in the playoffs last season. It wasn't just the tuck-rule call, but New England was called for only one penalty in the overtime game. The Raiders broke a four-game losing streak with a decisive win at Denver last Monday night. They are back to their aerial game. New England misses Joe Andruzzi, its offensive line leader, who is hurt again. The Pats on the road again for the third consecutive week. Knock, Knock.
