After a mistake-filled and controversial game, the Las Vegas Raiders fall to the Cincinnati Bengals 26-19 in the Wild Card round.
What a disappointing ending to such an incredible season for the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders went out and did what nobody thought they could do after all the things that team went through this year, and I know Raider Nation couldn’t be more proud.
But this is not a consolation prize league, there are no moral victories, and unfortunately, the moment seemed to be much too big for the Raiders. Mental mistakes are what caused this team to lose a very winnable game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but the mistakes we will certainly get into later in this article.
Rich Bisaccia and the rest of the coaching staff are most likely gone after this game, and if reports that came out before the game are true, maybe even quarterback Derek Carr, but we have a whole offseason to get into that speculation. In this article, I will talk about three surprises that happened in the Raiders’ loss to the Bengals on Super Wildcard Saturday.
