The Las Vegas Raiders had another dud at home against the Washington Football Team, here are the studs and duds from a disappointing Week 13 loss.
The Las Vegas Raiders were not able to keep the good times rolling after a big win in Dallas on Thanksgiving as they came home and suffered another devastating loss to a team they probably should have beat. There was a sense of deja vu in this game as the defense kept things close but the offense could not get anything going until it was too late to clinch the game.
The Washington Football Team were one a 3-game winning streak coming in to the game so they should not have been taken lightly but their defense is below average and they are missing key players on both sides of the ball. The same can be said of the Raiders but they had 10 days rest while Washington was coming off a short week and were on the road.
This was the type of game that a good team wins easily or at least relatively comfortably but nothing has been comfortable or easy for the Raiders this year so this was just par for the course unfortunately. Now the Raiders sit at 6-6 with a trip to Arrowhead Stadium coming up and the season just might hang in the balance.
Before we get to that, let’s look at the studs and duds from the tough loss to Washington in Week 13.
