A quick analysis of Week 16
What in the hell just happened? No, seriously — that can’t actually be real?
Let’s try and dissect the Las Vegas Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins game as we reel from how Saturday night’s showdown ended.
Record: The Raiders are 7-8.
What it means:
The Raiders are done this season. They have lost five of the past six games. This was the anti-Jets game.
Arden Key face mask and blown coverage. All in 19 seconds. This is one of the worst defeats in recent team history.
Raiders’ cornerback Trayvon Mullen was hurt in the first quarter with a shoulder issue and was replaced by Nevin Lawson. Mullen returned to the field in the second quarter. Guard Denzelle Good suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter and replaced by rookie John Simpson, meanwhile right tackle Trent Brown was banged up late in the game.
The Raiders finish the regular season on the road against the Denver Broncos on Jan. 3. Not that it means anything as their playoff chances are totally blown.
