On the Las Vegas Raiders podcast with Tony R:

#1 Above the topic of the Pittsburgh Steelers pulling out a miracle win against the Las Vegas Raiders in Pittsburgh on Saturday the tribute before the ball game for former Steelers star Franco Harris who ran back a deflected pass from former quarterback Terry Bradshaw during the 1972 AFC Championship for the immaculate reception for the win over the Raiders seemed to have motivated the Steelers before the game.

#2 The Raiders had the lead for most of the game Tony and it all started with in the first quarter when wide receiver Hunter Renfrow caught a 14 yard pass from quarterback Derek Carr for a touchdown making it 7-0.

#3 The Raiders Daniel Carlson rounded out all the scoring they would get for the rest of Sunday night with five seconds left with field goal in the second quarter. In the second half who would think leading by a touchdown going into the half this would be an end to the Raiders post season hopes?

#4 Talking about that second half what was badly needed for the Raiders who were shutout for two quarters in the third and fourth quarters.

#5 Tony, the Raiders will play their last two regular season games for pride now they take on the red hot San Francisco 49ers who have won eight straight games. Can the Raiders defense get past the 49ers O line and put pressure on 49er quarterback Brock Purdy?
