Raiders' season continues stumbling to brutal end after ugly loss to Eagles

"We've all been in situations where sometimes you know you're probably going to win the football game, but at the same time, you either look past it or whatever", Pederson said.

"Philadelphia clinched home-field advantage in the NFC last night with some sort of Christmas miracle, the 19-10 high-wire win over Oakland".

But in a Christmas miracle (for some), Eagles coach Doug Pederson elected to take a knee, so the final score read 19-10. Oakland's Derek Carr joined Dan Marino, Peyton Manning, Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck as only QBs with at least 100 TD passes in first four seasons in NFL. When the red-hot Raiders fell in the playoffs, many fans wondered what would happen if Carr had stayed healthy.

In his last 12 games this season, Carr has 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and looks uncomfortable in the pocket. He wanted to give his team a rest and give his injured players time to heal after a three game road trip.

The hardest thing about this season for the Raiders is that they're losing games because of a player to which they just gave a $125 million contract.

Offensive lineman Chris Hubbard (UAB) played in a reserve role for the Steelers. The game was very poor, and the Raiders were down 10-0 at the half but bounced back on two touchdowns from Derek Carr and Michael Crabtree. Smith-Schuster has had a solid season, and ranks third among National Football League rookies with 699 yards receiving. He completed four straight passes for 21 yards. Foles and the offense saved this group against the lowly Giants; they won't be so lucky against the Raiders or, even worse, a quality NFC playoff opponent with a list of quarterbacks that include Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton or Matt Ryan. However, ever since they changed defensive coordinators a month ago, they have played much better.

The Eagles, meanwhile, are a flawless 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games, are 9-2 against the number in their last 11 games overall, and are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

The Eagles' lack of explosive plays against a suspect defense was perhaps the most alarming aspect of the game. Denico Autry and Jihad Ward each recorded a sack as well. After a run for a first down by Ajayi resulted in a lost fumble, the Birds caused Marshawn Lynch to cough the ball up one play later, setting up shot at the 30-yardline. "It's the ultimate team game".

The loss dropped the Raiders to a disappointing 6-9 record, with just one game remaining on the schedule. A 35-yard field goal tied things at 10. Overall, Giorgio Tavecchio hit one of two attempts.

Linebacker Nicholas Morrow (Huntsville) made two tackles on defense and one on special teams for the Raiders.

Jack Del Rio is finishing the season much stronger than he started it. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Houston Texans 34-6 in the opener to clinch a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs. His timing with the receivers were off and he was never able to spark the offense into anything more then short yardage passing when facing the Oakland defense.
