Raiders Wild Card vs Bengals: 3 studs, 3 duds from the loss
Studs – Raider Nation
As this is the final studs and Duds article of the season, I wanted to give a quick shout-out to all of Raider Nation who have stuck by this team for so long. We know it hasn’t been easy to root for the Raiders in this Millennium but there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic and we still have some of the best fans in football.
This has been an incredibly difficult season with bad news coming from every direction but we have all stuck through it and got to witness some incredible football along the way. The Raiders won four games in overtime this year, went on a 3 and 4 game winning streak, swept Denver, and beat the Cowboys in Dallas on Thanksgiving.
We can hope that next year is a little quieter in terms of controversy but with plenty of changes surely coming this offseason, we will have plenty to discuss until the season kicks off again in September. Keep your heads up Raider Nation, this team made us proud by never giving up and fighting until literally the last play of their season. Now let’s rebuild this summer and kick some serious butt in 2022!
