Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders: Game preview and prediction
By Nick Ellis
The Oakland Raiders have lost three straight, and they look to bounce back in their final game in Oakland against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Oakland Raiders have most likely let their playoff hopes slip away, although they are not completely out of the running for a Wild Card spot. The Raiders, at one point, sat at 6-4 with a clear path to the playoffs, but over the last three weeks, everything has fallen apart.
On the other hand, the Jaguars have looked just as bad as the Raiders recently, if not worse. The Jaguars have lost five straight games, with a clear lack of offense in those outings. This is a franchise who looks to be in line for some wholesale changes after the season.
The Raiders host their final game in Oakland this weekend, and they look to bounce back and end their career in Oakland with a big win. The Black Hole is going to be rocking, and you have to think that the energy inside the Coliseum will be enough to give the team a distinct advantage on Sunday.
While it is still strange to think of the team moving to Las Vegas, the do have one more game in the Bay Area. For guys like Jon Gruden and Derek Carr, this is going to be a special day, as they have meant more to the franchise than most of the other guys in the organization right now.
Here is our game preview for Sunday’s matchup against the Jaguars.
