With a team already weak on depth, all the late injuries here in December aren't helping Oakland at all...(though the return of Veldheer has been huge thus far).

The turnovers in your own territory, the blocked punts, the missed field goals...the Raiders aren't good enough to overcome these mistakes.  It falls on the players making poor decisions and not making plays, but there's something to be said for the coaching staff as well.  It felt like a question of motivation early...then again, it could have just been a lack of focus on the road...either way it's a perfect storm for the Raiders right now.  QBs struggling to be consistent and a Raider defense that is faltering down the stretch, having a tough time getting off the field on 3rd down.

The 2014 1st Round pick is getting higher and higher...looking like a Top 5 pick, considering the rest of the Oakland schedule.
