Another big start wasted, another trip to the East Coast ending in futility. The Oakland Raiders are quickly running out of time to make any type of move in the AFC, and their 24-20 loss to the New York Giants in Week 10 only makes things worse.
Dennis Allen’s team shook off a home loss to the Philadelphia Eagles a week earlier and had the Giants on the ropes for most of the afternoon thanks to a stout effort by the Raiders defense and special teams.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor and the offense couldn’t make it hold up, however. A week after racking up nearly 600 yards of offense, the Raiders went down rather meekly and committed a pair of costly turnovers to help fuel New York’s win.
Here are some of the top takeaways from Oakland’s loss.
