Tonight’s Raiders-49ers Game Is Statistically The Worst Primetime NFL Matchup In 50 Years

Before the season, one would have thought that the 49ers and Raiders meeting for a Primetime Thursday night matchup would have playoff implications. Instead it has 2019 NFL Draft implications.

A Jimmy Garoppolo ACL tear and a few Oakland trades shipping off their best players later, and the 49ers and Raiders have a combined 2-13 record halfway through the season.

Nonetheless, they will face off tonight in statistically the worst primetime matchup since 1970.

Turns out the scariest thing from Halloween came a day late.
