The Las Vegas Raiders just cannot find a way to win a football game.
The Raiders fell to 2-7 on Sunday, after a disappointing 25-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
The Raiders flopped in a game where Jeff Saturday was making his coaching debut for the Colts.
With seven losses already, the Raiders’ hopes for any postseason football are all but gone.
Another Brutal Defeat
But, it is fair to wonder if Josh McDaniels will be back after this season.
Raiders over last 3 weeks
Week 8: shut out
Week 9: blew third 17-point lead of the season (becoming third team in NFL history to do so)
Week 10: lost game to a head coach who was coaching his first game ever at pro (or even collegiate) level pic.twitter.com/198Sko9zWw

McDaniels is in his first year with the Raiders, and usually, most coaches get more than one season to turn their team around.
But, McDaniels was joining a team that made the playoffs last season.
All he has seemingly done is make them worse.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was emotional after the loss.
"I'm sorry for being emotional. I'm just pissed off… what we put our bodies through just to sleep at night."

The Raiders have far too many good players to be 2-7.
But, for some reason, they can not finish all close games.
Six of the seven losses this season have been by one score or less.
Fans on social media are already done with the Raiders and their terrible season.
#Raiders are a joke until I see otherwise.

With Las Vegas now set up to finish with one of the worst records in the NFL, it will be interesting to see what approach they take in the offseason.
Not only could they fire their head coach, but they may move on from Carr as well.
In a draft class full of good quarterback prospects it might be time to give the control to someone else.

But, for the rest of this season, the Raiders will remain one of the laughingstocks in the league.
