Niners look to salvage season vs. Raiders

Mike Singletary's club has yet to win.

(Bill Nichols / Associated Press)

The storyline
The Battle for Bay Area supremacy is the backdrop for two teams that badly need to sustain something positive.

Why you should watch
Mike Singletary's coaching deathwatch continues at 0-5. If Tom Cable gets a win, the Raiders would be 3-3 and very much in the AFC West hunt. Will one of these 2005 first-round quarterbacks (Alex Smith and Jason Campbell) stake a claim to their jobs?

Did you know?
Oakland TE Zach Miller has a TD catch in three consecutive games. ... The Raiders are 4-2 all-time at San Francisco. ... San Francisco WR Michael Crabtree had a career-high 105 receiving yards last week. ... When Frank Gore has at least 172 yards from scrimmage, the 49ers are 8-0.
