What a Shock!: The Raiders Lost Again

Josh BroudyCorrespondent IDecember 28, 2009

It's a pattern that's persisted all season; the Oakland Raiders just can't seem to get over the hump.

The Raiders haven't won two straight all season. 

Warren Sapp was right after all; the Raiders really are at their worst after a win.

After the week two victory at Kansas City, they followed it up with a 23-3 loss at home. After the most surprising win in the NFL (other than Bucs over Saints) this season vs. Philadelphia, they follow it up with 38-0 ass-whooping by the Jets.

Anyway, you see where I'm going with this. The lowest point totals in all of those five losses has been 14 points. It shows that they aren't even making it close. 

Something needs to be fixed, they need to change their routine after a win. It's clear whatever they've been doing hasn't worked this season. It's unfortunate that Raider Nation won't taste two straight wins this season. The only good thing about a loss lately is, that the Raiders follow it up with a win.

That's what the Raiders look to do against Baltimore next week. With a victory, they eliminate them from the playoff race similar to the way they eliminated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.
