All good things must come to an end. Or as this season of Raiders football has taught us, all mediocre things eventually come to a conclusion.
Three straight seasons of 8-8 football would appear to be impossible given Oakland’s pathetic performance lately. That in turn has brought another streak to an end.
Can’t say it comes as much of a surprise. This franchise is in total disarray at the moment and seeing the 3-8 Browns come to town isn’t exactly a way to boost ticket sales.
Of course what makes this first blackout in over a year so different is that the Raiders needed only to sell 85% of their non-premium seats to avoid blackout.
