This season was already in the toilet, and that toilet may have been flushed yesterday in the Raiders’ 23-13 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The Raiders are now 0-7 having lost what looked like the most winnable game on their remaining schedule. With the next three games including going on the road against Seattle and San Diego and facing a seemingly unstoppable Peyton Manning and the Broncos at home, the Raiders may be 0-10 before getting Kansas City at home.  In fact, the most winnable game left on the schedule could be the Week 17 matchup against the Broncos in Denver – because the Broncos could likely have clinched home field by then and be resting Manning and their other key starters.

That said, there’s also quite a bit of good, and we’ll take a look here at the good, the bad, and the ugly in the Raiders loss to the Browns and ways in which they can turn around the bad and ugly and salvage at least a respectable finish to the season.
