This is becoming a weekly thing.
The Raiders have been beaten by a combined score of 73-27 at home in the last two games, first by the Kansas City Chiefs and now the Bengals. The Raiders are 5-5. They have averaged 31 points game in their five victories and have averaged 13 points in their five losses. For the season, Las Vegas is averaging 22.3 points a game.
As this tweet from the Associated Press shows, the Raiders’ low-point totals in their losses is among the worst outputs in the entire NFL.

It is also becoming historic in team history:

While it’s no mystery, if the Raiders are going to snap out of their funk, they must find a way to get the offense rolling again.
