Lions vs Raiders: 6 Things We Learned About Oakland's 28-27 Loss

While having their prayers answered with losses by the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, the Oakland Raiders didn't do their part to put themselves in a better position to make the playoffs this year. A win today would have put the Raiders back in a first-place tie for the AFC West lead.

They also would have been tied with the New York Jets and the Cincinnati Bengals for the last wild-card spot. The Raiders own the tiebreaker with the Jets, having beat them this season, while the Bengals still have to play the Ravens in their season finale. 

It was a true heartbreaker for the blown opportunity and the way the Raiders lost this game 28-27. We will truly learn a great deal more about the team next week in Kansas City, facing the Chiefs, as they recover from today's loss. 

But we were able to learn quite a bit about the Raiders in their heartbreaking loss today.
