The Raiders aren't last in the Associated Press Pro32 NFL power rankings, but they're headed in that direction.
Oakland (3-8) lost its fourth game in a row Sunday, 34-10 to the Cincinnati Bengals, and dropped one spot to 31st in the rankings, as determined by the poll's 12 voters.
The Raiders received 27 points in the latest rankings. The only team with fewer points are the 32nd-ranked Kansas City Chiefs (1-10), with 13 points.
The Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9) had been 31st but exchanged ranking spots with the Raiders after their 24-19 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Oakland has a chance to reverse its downward trend when it hosts the 25th-ranked Cleveland Browns (3-8) on Sunday.
Here are the voter's comments on the Raiders after Week 12, as provided by the AP (voter affiliation and ranking in parentheses):
Chris Berman (ESPN, 31) -- Once proud Raiders-Chiefs rivalry is at bottom of list.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 31) -- The Raiders are yielding 42.2 points per game since Week 9.
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 31) -- The effort from the defense at times is pathetic especially inside.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 31) -- Time for Terrelle Pryor? Why not? Can't get much worse for the Raiders.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 31) -- The Raiders are on a pace to allow 518 points, second-most in NFL history. They allowed 55 to Baltimore, 42 to Tampa Bay and in the 30s to five other opponents.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 31) -- Looks like these guys like to hit the quarterback only after a play has been blown dead.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 31) -- Pride and poise may give way to 500 points allowed.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 31) -- It feels like if the Raiders get on a plane and come to the East Coast they will lose and score about 10 points. It was their fourth of five trips back east and it happened again. One more trip left Dec. 23 in Carolina.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 32) -- The Raiders turnaround has a long way to go.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 31) -- I can hear Al Davis screaming from the great beyond at how bad his team has played during a four-game losing streak.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 28) -- Despite a lot of changes, they still look like the same old Raiders.
