After an impressive and uncharacteristic start to the season where they cut penalties down severely, the Raiders have gone back to their old ways of stupid fouls that inhibit their chances to win football games.
Oakland finished with 10 penalties for 105 yards against the Ravens. Though 10 penalties may seem like another day at the office to the Raiders, four of them were personal fouls that kept the Ravens offense on the field.
After only committing two fouls against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8, Oakland has 19 penalties in its last two games.
Although the Raiders' culture has been defined by a renegade reputation with smash-mouth football, the penalties have got to stop if they want to be taken seriously by the rest of the league.
That's why Hue Jackson got fired in the first place, right?
