In a season that has been filled with disappointment, especially offensively, the Las Vegas Raiders offense hit a new low during the team’s 3-0 Week 14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Not only did Las Vegas fail to score points for the first time all year—and just the second time since 2014—but they also only managed to gain 202 total yards and picked up just eight first downs on 12 drives. Additionally, even when they did show signs of life and had opportunities to put points on the board, the offense couldn’t get out of its own way with drive-killing penalties and a couple of turnovers.

The Raiders managed to break into the Vikings’ territory four times but two flags and two fumbles contributed to taking points off the board. Granted, the last possession was via a last-ditch effort to score with several laterals, but three trips across the 50-yard line with nothing to show for it doesn’t make the situation any better.

Obviously, there was plenty of frustration in Las Vegas’ locker room to the point where star wide receiver Davante Adams, who typically makes himself available to the media after games, left before reporters could even ask him a question, per The Athletic’s Tashan Reed.

Below are a few of the highlights of the post-game press conferences and posts/tweets on X, the site formerly known as Twitter.

For more context, Adams had 10 targets for seven catches and 53 yards.

The Raiders had a nice tribute for the victims of the UNLV shooting and fallen state troopers before the game.

It seems like Antonio Pierce might be switching quarterbacks again as Aidan O’Connell struggled, going 21 for 32 with 171 yards and an interception.

Well, the Raiders managed to make history...

O’Connell is taking this one on the chin but, Raiders fans have heard this line plenty of times in the past...

O’Connell looked pretty dejected leaving the game.

Mark Davis had another long post-game meeting with Pierce.

Pretty fitting for the organization over the last 20 or so years.

Maxx Crosby shares his thoughts.

It gets lost in the terrible loss, but Crosby hit a milestone.

Heisman winner Jayden Daniels seems to be the fan base’s choice for the Raiders’ next quarterback, what say you?

We’re here for each other, Raider Nation!

Nick Mullens, is a confirmed Raiders killer.
