The Las Vegas Raiders are in a grim spot but they aren’t dead yet. Here are the five reasons why the Silver and Black can turn their season around.
Las Vegas Raiders’ head coach Josh McDaniels put it best in a post-game quote Monday night, even if it’s not what fans want to hear right now. “This is a marathon. If this was a sprint, we lost the sprint.”
It’s the mindset that the players, and fans, must carry with them into the bye week and moving forward the rest of the season. Yes, the Raiders have put themselves into an unthinkable hole, but the season is far from over. Anything can happen in this league, and as Las Vegas has proven in the past, they’re more than capable of exceeding expectations when no one has faith in them.
It will need to be a collective effort for the Raiders to turn things around, but they have some silver linings to take into the bye week, as well as some favorable odds headed their way. These are the five reasons why the Raiders are not dead yet this season.
