Oakland's offense looks like your average Norv Turner model--power run game complemented by a vertical passing element--with one significant twist: WR Randy Moss. No New England cornerback can match up with him one-on-one, which makes the rest of the Raiders' potent offense that much more dangerous. But because New England's defense is so versatile and disciplined, and because coach Bill Belichick is willing to try just about anything, the Pats just might blitz slow-footed QB Kerry Collins or run some high-risk, high-reward schemes to shake things up. They are just as unpredictable on offense, and the versatility of their tight ends allows them to grind it out or spread the field against favorable personnel packages.
