ALAMEDA, Calif. — A late-game collapse has essentially left the Oakland Raiders' hopes of ending an eight-year playoff drought to this formula: Win their final two games and hope.
Before the Raiders can start digging deep into the NFL's tiebreaking scenarios they have a much more important task. They must figure out how to get back on track following a three-game losing streak.
Lopsided losses at Miami and Green Bay were followed by perhaps Oakland's most crushing loss of the season. The Raiders (7-7) blew a 13-point lead in the closing minutes against Detroit and lost 28-27 on Sunday to deal a blow to their playoff hopes.
