We break down the Raiders first and second halves and compare them.

NFL: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

You know those memes where you take those Rob Lowe commercials and say “Hi, I’m Rob Lowe with DirecTV... and I’m Rob Lowe with cable”? You could do that with the Raiders in the first half vs the Raiders in the second half.

This stat from resident Raiders stat man Josh Dubow of the Associate Press sums it up pretty nicely:

Top ten in scoring differential in the first half and dead last in the second. That’s a good way to go 0-2.
