Thoughts from the Dark Side:
The Raiders were held without a touchdown for the second straight week but unlike last week’s victory against the Chiefs, field goals were not enough against the Panthers who put the Raiders away, 17-6.
The Panthers’ team was not significantly better but, despite being called for 10 penalties for 97 yards they were able to capitalize on their red zone trips and their two TDs and a FG where the Raiders 0-2 in their two trips to the redzone.

The Raiders have scored a number of touchdowns in garbage time this year and, in general, have not been able to score when it’s needed, trailing most of the teams they are playing throughout the game.
In fact, a review of the Raiders previous games showed that the last time the Raiders scored a TD that either put them into the lead or maintained a lead for them was on November 4th, when the Raiders played Tam...
