The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off their first loss under head coach Antonio Pierce. Even though the Raiders didn’t win, they showed they can hang with a contender.
With the defense continuing to overachieve this season, it gives the Raiders a chance to steal games. The defense is 13th in EPA, according to RBSDM.com, and allows 20.5 points per game. The offense isn’t holding its end of the bargain, struggling to move the football consistently.
In this week’s SB Nation Reacts, we ask again for your confidence in the team’s direction. It went down last week to 88% from 90%. The slight downward trend continues as 83% of Raider Nation have confidence in the team’s direction.
Up next for the Raiders is the Kansas City Chiefs. However, they might be without superstar edge rusher Maxx Crosby, who is doubtful. Crosby is the heart and soul of the Raiders football team and would be a significant loss on Sunday. It will be on the other edge rushers to make an impact.
