Vegas Nation Host Cassie Soto and Review-Journal sportswriter Ben Gotz discuss the winners and losers of the first ever NFL Virtual draft war room set ups.
The Raiders can not allow their cold weather woes and potential playoff opportunity to distract them against the Denver Broncos in the final game of the season.
The Raiders will go into Denver on Sunday looking for the season sweep of the Broncos and to give themselves an opportunity for postseason play but with multiple injuries on the roster the reserves will once again have to step up in their absence.
With their post season destiny in control of other teams around the league, Sunday’s win against the Chargers revived the Raiders playoff hopes going into the last game of the season.
Three weeks in a row the Raiders have taken a loss by a huge deficit. Sunday’s loss to the Tennessee Titans all but ends the Raiders chances of securing a wildcard spot in the AFC Playoffs in a season filled with many highs and lows.
The Raiders lost their third straight game in their return to Oakland. The Titans took over the game in the second half scoring 21 unanswered points. Though the Raiders are still in the hunt for an AFC playoff spot, their chances faded drastically with the 42-21 loss. (Heidi Fang/Las Vegas Review-Journal)
The Tennessee Titans are ranked above the Raiders in the AFC Wildcard standings and with a win this Sunday the team will put themselves in a better position for post season play.
