Las Vegas Raiders at Indianapolis Colts: 3 things we learned
Las Vegas is a playoff team
Like it or not, this is a team that looks like a playoff team right now, as the defense is playing their best brand of football over the last three games. Sure, they have played some backup quarterbacks, and a starter in Wentz that likely should not be starting at the NFL level, but they have also stymied some incredible running backs along the way.
If Carr can do a better job protecting the football, and playing more consistently throughout the game, the Raiders have the talent on both sides of the ball to earn a playoff spot next weekend at home. For everything this organization has been through, including stuff on and off the field, getting to ten wins would be quite the accomplishment, especially finishing with a four-game winning streak to close the regular season.
The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17, and here are four reasons why they will come away with the victory.
The Raiders are incredibly one win away from clinching a playoff spot, and right now, they are going to be a tough out. They can tie the season series with the Chargers with a win next weekend, and by doing so, punch their ticket to the playoffs for only the second time since the 2002 NFL season.
With how they have played down the stretch, that is a likely scenario.
