The Las Vegas Raiders fell short against the New York Giants at Metlife Stadium, here are the 5 things we learned from the Week 9 loss.
The Las Vegas Raiders had an incredibly difficult week leading up to the Week 9 matchup with the New York Giants after the Henry Ruggs incident and it showed on the field. The Raiders, particularly on offense, looked out of sync and the familiar issue of struggling to punch it in once in the red zone reared its ugly head once again.
The defense was able to keep the Raiders in the game until the very end but miscues in all three phases ultimately doomed the team and snapped the two-game winning streak they had going into the bye. They had a chance to extend that streak, and the game, but the Giants’ defense came up with their third turnover and another big play to wrap up the game.
Next up for the Raiders is a primetime date with the struggling Chiefs who are not as good as their record suggests but are still building some momentum for a late-season push. Before that, let’s discuss what we learned from a difficult loss against the New York Football Giants.
