Week 15: Everything You Need to Know (and then some)

2020 Playoff Pontificator pt. II

Ok, I’m not sure why I decided to waste several hours of my life exploring and then writing up so much detailed information regarding Raider playoff possibilities after such a stinker of a game, but you, the blogue’sters will be the beneficiaries of such nonsense.

But in Raiders fashion, Jon Gruden and the rest of the men in black found a way to stay in it until the very end in a game that epitomizes the old Al Davis credo: Just Win Baby!
