A season that started with promise continues to go off the rails for the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Las Vegas Raiders fell to 5-5 on the season on Sunday after the Cincinnati Bengals came into Alleginat stadium and dominated them, 32-13.
Following the game, Portland TrailBlazers star Damian Lillard took to Twitter and announced he was done watching the team in 2021.
“I think I’m done watching the Raiders this season,” he tweeted.
Frustrations are evident with any fan base. If you’ve been watching sports for any amount of time, then you’ve likely said this about your favorite team hundreds of times, only to tune in during their very next game.
Lillard will be back.
In a game that was competitive as late as the fourth quarter, the Raiders collapsed as they allowed the Bengals to reel off 16 unanswered points.
The on the field issues follow head coach Jon Gruden resigning after email leaks showed his reported use of racist, sexist and anti-gay language behind closed doors. Weeks later, Henry Ruggs III was arrested in a tragic alleged DUI crash that left a woman and her dog dead on a Las Vegas street.
The team is not out of it yet, but if they don’t fix things soon, this once promising season is going to end with a bad taste in everybody’s mouth.
