With a 27-14 lead midway through the fourth quarter it finally seemed like the Raiders were on their way to putting the frustrating losses over the past couple weeks behind them. Then everything went downhill. First there was Detroit's 57-yard drive for a TD. Then with two minutes left, Matthew Stafford decided to get his Joe Montana on leading Detroit 98 yards down the field for a 28-27 lead with 39 seconds left. Sebastian Janikowski's attempt at a potential 65-yard game-winner was blocked by Ndamukong Suh and just like that the Raiders had lost their third game in a row. The Silver and Black still has a shot at the playoffs as they're only one game behind Denver but late-season losses like this one are hard to bounce back from. If Al Davis has any gangster moves he can pull from wherever he is now, it's time for him to go ahead and play that card. —Nick Restivo
