The Las Vegas Raiders fell short against the Los Angeles Chargers after a furious comeback, here are the studs and duds from the loss.
The Las Vegas Raiders have been slow starters this season and have fallen behind by two scores twice but have come back to win. Against the Los Angeles Chargers, the 14 point deficit was too much for them to overcome and they ended up losing the game by two scores despite a solid fight back in the second half.
The reason for the slow starts has been issues with offensive execution and this game was no different. The LA defensive line was all over Derek Carr from the first play and the Raiders were unable to make any headway against what was the worst rush defense in the NFL coming in.
Though they fought back valiantly and brought it within two scores before falling short, there are plenty of reasons to be concerned about this Raiders team. The defense is not one of them as they held up well despite the lack of assistance from the offense but there are several issues too glaring to ignore.
We will discuss that further in the coming slides and here are the studs and duds from a tough loss to a division rival.
