4 (possibly 3) Wins to the Title

Our Raiders have had two winning streaks this season. We won 3 in a row with victories over the Titans, Ravens, and Chargers. After our second loss of the season to the Chiefs, we ran off 6 W's in a row by defeating the Jaguars, Buccaneers, Broncos, Texans, Panthers, and a nice comeback victory against the Bills.

KC broke our win streak once again on Thursday, Dec 8th, but that's OK. We needed to get that loss out of the way and move forward.

The goal now, go on another 6-game win streak to the title. A win Sunday at San Diego (our home away from home) will start it off (update: we won). Christmas eve, we should handle Luck and the Colts, in Oakland (update: Colts dominated the Vikings, who were supposed to have a good D, so no longer referring to Indy as "punchless), and we close the season with a win at Mile High Stadium in Denver. Three more victories after that, we are the 2017 Super Bowl Champions.

****12/24/2016 Update: Two-game win streak, defeated Chargers and Colts (although Carr suffered an injury in the Colts game, McGloin finished the game) *** 4 wins to the title, 3 if the Broncos defeat the Chiefs on Sunday Night (12/25). We need to win the AFC West because that will give us a first round bye in the Playoffs and maybe an extra week for Carr to heal (if it's a fracture he's done till next season).

That's not as farfetched as it sounds, we can do this!!!
