I can’t recall a bigger win for this Raiders team in at least a decade. Sure, you could point to a game or two in 2016 when they went on their one playoff run, but I don’t remember any of them really standing out as a monumental achievement the level of taking down the Chiefs last Sunday.
Most of the damage the Raiders did in this game came in the second quarter. They came back from a 14-3 deficit to take a 24-21 lead and were tied at 24 at the half.
They calmed down some on offense in the second, but the defense picked it up to allow no scores in the third quarter and just one late in the game after having gone up 40-24. Let’s dole out some credit.
