Ridiculous number of 5 and 10 yard penalties on the offensive line killed 2 TD drives and got FGs instead. One of them would have positioned them for 2nd and goal on the 1. That was 8 points lost. Another 3 points at the end lost when forced to go for it on 4th and goal from the 10. And of course , in keeping with the long tradition of bogus calls in the playoffs against the Raiders, the obligatory failure to enforce the rules as written by the NFL gave Cincy 4 extra points on Cincy's final after the whistle TD. This call didnt get reviewed by the NFL office. Instead the call was routed to Goodell's house for the final decision. Put this one with the Immaculate reception and the tuck rule.
    Raiders killed themselves not the refs. Why did they spike the ball with 35 seconds, there was plenty of time to run 4 plays, why give one away?

    as for the Cincinnati TD call yes the Raiders got screwed, Cincy may have scored on the replay down but LV might also have intercepted it and run it back. That said had they overturned that it was Cincy who would have been screwed as the whistle appeared to have no impact on the ply and would have overturned an impressive play from Burrow. They should have overturned it because that’s the rule with inadvertent whistle, but it still would have screwed Cincy, so either way one team was getting screwed on that call/no call.

Why not hurry up to the line and see if there's a blown coverage in the end zone and if not, simply throw it away? That was stupid. Also stupid was the insane number of drops by Raider receivers.
    Agree 100%. How do they not have 2 plays called there? To run a play there takes an additional 4-5 seconds over a spike-- max. And this is a qb who is so unclutch in the red zone, how can you just throw away a down? Carr is the best qb in the NFL at throwing the ball away out of bounds. It constantly amazes me how often other qbs find a receiver when they have to roll out, but Carr never does. They just did not seem prepared to play. Peyton fing Barber is a special teams player. And Bisacchia is the special teams coordinator. How does that happen?

    And a brain freeze by Peyton Barber.

    It’s time for new leadership to acquire more talented players and install some discipline. The team doesn’t play smart football.

    I have the opposite take on the Cincy game. Thats a game they win if they have Ruggs and Waller. I didnt see that as a blowout game. They were without Ruggs and Waller. As a result they started out 0-8 on 3rd down conversions and didnt make one until the 4th quarter. Despite this the score was 16-13 with 5 minutes left in the game. Cincy scored with under 5 minutes to go up 10. Carr was put in a situation where he was forced to make long high risk throws basically with no one to throw to. He had 2 turnovers in that last 5 minutes on his own 20 yard line that was converted into 9 more points. That game was much closer than the score would have you believe. Im not overly worried by Cincinati. Statistically LV is better on both sides of the ball. Cincy's O is ranked 7th in passing, 23rd rushing and 13th overall. LV's O is ranked 6th, 28th and 11th, this despite not having Ruggs for 12 games and no Waller for 6 games. On defense Cincy is ranked 5th vs run, 27th vs pass and 18th overall. LV's defensive ranks are 19th, 12th and 14th. Cincy looks like they score mid 20's in points for most of their games. Theyve been held to less than that as many times as they have scored big. The raiders D has been playing extremely well with the exception of the KC game. I think the Raider's pass rush is going to get to Burrow and dictate the game. I think this is the game where Bradley unleashes some blitzes from Deablo and/or Hobbs to supplement Crosby and Ngayoue. I predict that they hold Cincy to 24 points or less. Im looking for a big day for Carr vs Cincy weak pass defense. Weather permitting, I think he puts up 30+ this time.

    As far as KC is concerned Ill worry about that later. If Raiders beat Cincy, they will be playing Ten next, who they also match up well with. KC has to get past Buf and would not face the Raiders until the conference game. The fact that they got blown out by KC during the season is concerning, but those games were played when the Raiders were reeling. Last year the Raiders beat them in KC and blew the 2nd game at home due to bad clock management at the end of the game and lost the game on the next to the last play of the game. This years Raiders team is significantly better than last years team, especially on defense. This year's KC team is not as good as last year's team.

    Thanx for the well wishes.

    Congrats to the Raiders on making the playoffs for the 1st time since 2016. They showed a lot of determination and will to win to get there consideriing all the turmoil that they had to deal with this year. They are red hot, having to win their last 4 games all against playoff hopefuls to punch their ticket.

    I don’t know about red hot, they won 4 games by a combined total of 12 points. What would concern me if I was a Raider fan is that they were absolutely blown out twice by KC and once by Cincy. The have to go to Cincinnati this week and might very likely have to face KC down the road. Maybe they can win two shootouts but none of those 3 games did it look like Las Vegas could slow dow either of those offenses.

    anyway good luck. Given the Gruden and Ruggs fallout I thought they were dead, ton of credit to their interim coach who I believe is the first interim head coach to make the playoffs ever.

    If Al was still around, he would bring Gruden back. Then again, he wouldnt have allowed Goodell to bully him into firing him in the first place. Seriously though, I dont know if Carr is Harbaugh's style of QB. I was thinking they would grab the OC from KC, Dal or Buf for their HC.
