An AFL rivalry will be renewed Sunday when the Raiders host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In 28 regular-season and playoff matchups since the merger, the Raiders lead the all-time series 15-13. The Silver and Black last met up with the Steel Curtain on Nov. 8, 2015 in a 38-35 shootout. Pittsburgh kicked a last-minute field goal, overcoming Derek Carr's four touchdowns.
The Steelers won't have running back James Conner, but they still boast one of the NFL's most prolific offenses. Can the shorthanded Raiders keep pace?
