The aimless Las Vegas Raiders are 0-3. The groups which have crushed them are winless of their different six video games, shedding by a median of 16.2 factors.
Head coach Josh McDaniels has reiterated that Las Vegas should “learn how to win.” Considering the workforce made the playoffs final 12 months with a much less gifted roster, this isn’t encouraging. Neither is the truth that McDaniels is 1-10 over his previous 11 video games as an NFL head coach.
Raiders proprietor Mark Davis doesn’t appear happy. Following Sunday’s 24-22 loss at Tennessee, Davis met behind closed doorways with McDaniels, inflicting the winless coach to be late to his post-game information convention.
The dialog most likely didn’t deal with visits to vacationer locations in Nashville.
McDaniels should be feeling strain to surpass zero within the wins column. He’s on tempo to finish up like former Raiders head coach Dennis Allen, who was fired after an 0-4 start in 2014.
McDaniels’ workforce could make up floor.
Over the following 4 weeks, Las Vegas faces Denver at residence, Kansas City on the street, has a Week 6 bye after which hosts Houston. Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense have struggled. Patrick Mahomes‘ Chiefs misplaced to the winless Colts in Week 3. The Raiders can get again within the combine with back-to-back divisional wins and a victory over the rebuilding Texans.
No one anticipated the Raiders would battle on offense, supposedly former offensive coordinator McDaniels’ power.
The Raiders would not have course offensively. Las Vegas stays unbalanced, passing 71 % of the time — an excessive amount of for a workforce with gifted working backs on the roster. All-Pro wideout Davante Adams has solely 48 receiving yards over the previous two weeks. Former Pro Bowl working again Josh Jacobs has 135 yards dashing over the identical interval.
“There really aren’t any obvious answers as to how the Raiders turn this around,” Vic Tafur of The Athletic wrote. “You might even say the team is 0-3, and the patchwork offensive line has overachieved to this point.”
McDaniels, who had an 11-17 document as Broncos coach from 2009-10, should show he may be an NFL head coach.
Sunday’s sport is the most important of his early Raiders profession. Per the New York Times, the workforce has a 16 % probability to make the postseason. If Las Vegas loses at residence versus Denver, its playoff hopes will virtually evaporate as 0-4 groups not often make the postseason. The 1992 Chargers had been the final to do it.
The Raiders would not have to “learn how to win,” however McDaniels does.
