Las Vegas Raiders game wrap: Raiders drop third straight game 32-13; Bengals snap two game loss streak

The picture is worth a thousand words as Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard (94) goes to recover a fumble by Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr (4) who is laid out which pretty much summed up the Raiders afternoon on Sun Nov 21, 2021 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas (AP News photo)

Las Vegas Raiders beat writer

The Las Vegas Raiders (5-5) dropped their third straight game on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas to the Cincinnati Bengals (6-4) 32-13. For the Bengals they snapped their two game loss streak. Bengals running back Joe Mixon rushed for 132 yards and carried for two touchdowns to contribute to the Bengals offense.

The Bengals who had a bye last week came out well rested and had quite a fourth quarter scoring 19 points to pretty much put the game out of reach. The win also puts the Bengals right back in playoff contention in the AFC North.

The game was so out of hand for the Raiders that Bengals kicker Evan McPherson didn’t feel any pressure kicking field goals becoming the 13th kicker in NFL history to kick three field goals over 50 yards in a game. The Bengals defense did their job holding the Raiders to under 300 yards at 278 yards of offense the second time Cincinnati has done it against an opponent this season.

On offense for the Raiders the 278 yards of offense was their third lowest total for 2021. It was another rough afternoon for Raiders quarterback Derek Carr with 19 completions out of 27 attempts for 215 yards, one touchdown and an interception. The Raiders first half on offense was atrocious they scored a field goal only in each of the first and second quarters and got shutout in the third quarter giving them virtually no chance at all to catch the Bengals.

The Raiders had six chances to get a first down and couldn’t making it 14 straight non first down conversions over two games (see last week against Kansas City Chiefs). The Raiders after their former head coach Jon Gruden resigned back on Oct 10th after losing to the Chicago Bears 20-9 won two straight games against the Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles.

lt was Nov 2 when former running back Henry Ruggs III was DUI and killed Tina Tinton of Las Vegas and was put under house arrest and soon released by the Raiders. Then on Nov 5th Raider cornerback Damon Arnette video recorded himself holding an automatic rifle with a scope threatening a fan on social media after posting the video on social media the Raiders general manager Mark Mayock announced Arnette had been released. Since that week the Raiders have been a struggling team.

The Raiders hope to turn things around this Thursday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Thanksgiving Day against the Dallas Cowboys (7-3). The Cowboys have won four out of their last six games but lost their last game Sunday to the Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) 19-9. A 1:30 pm PST kick off for the Raiders and Cowboys this Thu Nov 25th.

On the Raiders podcast with Rich Perez:

#1 What a way for the Kansas City Chiefs (6-4) to turn things around with a big win over the Las Vegas Raiders (5-4) on Sunday Night Football 41-14 and Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes got all the time he needed to throw the ball for five touchdowns.

#2 This was the third time for Mahomes to throw over 400 yards and five touchdowns since he was drafted in 2017 and became the first player have both of them without throwing an interception.

#3 Meanwhile the Raiders just simply looked like they were going empty handed it just seemed no matter what the defense did the Chiefs just found ways to break through the Chiefs never let up on scoring throughout the game.

#4 Former Raider wide receiver Henry Ruggs III failed to take an alcohol test on Wed Nov 17th as ordered by the court Las Vegas Judge Suzan Baucum ordered Ruggs back in court. Ruggs had been under house arrest he is waiting for his preliminary for felony DUI causing death and other serious charges. Ruggs attorney David Chesnoff told Baucum there was something wrong with the testing equipment. Baucum told Chesnoff it didn’t matter. Ruggs could get confinement in Las Vegas jail for missing the test as strict guidelines were made in order for Ruggs to get house arrest.

#5 The Raiders host the Cincinnati Bengals (5-4), the Raiders are coming off two straight loses and the Bengals have lost their last two games likewise. In their last game last Sunday the Cleveland Browns upended the Bengals 41-16. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow threw 28-40 for 282 yards, and two interceptions. Rich how do you see this match up between the Bengals and Raiders this Sunday.

Raiders hold off Bengals, 17-10

OAKLAND — In a game where the Silver and Black entered the contest an almost two-touchdown favorite, the Raiders narrowly escaped with a 17-10 victory over the winless Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

Quarterback Derek Carr threw for 292 yards and a touchdown, while adding rushing for another score as the Raiders (6-4) completed a three-game sweep at home to move into a first-place tie with the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.

Kansas City (6-4) will play the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City on Monday Night Football.

Carr completed 25-of-29 passes and an interception in the contest.

With Oakland trailing Cincinnati 7-0 in the second quarter after running back Joe Mixon scored the Bengals’ first rushing touchdown of the season by a running back, Carr engineered an 11-play, 91-yard drive in 7:07 that was punctuated by a 3-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight Foster Moreau that tied the game at 7-7.

After forcing the Bengals to punt on the following drive, Carr led Oakland on a 10-play, 80-yard drive that ate up 3:39 that resulted in a 3-yard rushing touchdown by Carr who went airborne at the goal line before crashing into the end zone that gave the Silver and Black a 14-7 lead.

Rookie running back Josh Jacobs continues to be a bellcow for Oakland, rushing for 112 yards on 23 carries. It was the fourth time in the last six weeks that Jacobs, a heavy favorite for AFC Offensive Rookie of the Year, rushed for over 100 yards.

Jacobs’ first fumble of the season would set up Cincinnati’s on touchdown in the game.

Oakland’s defense dominated Cincinnati’s offense, registering five sacks, forcing and recovering one fumble, and an interception. The defense was relentless against Bengals rookie quarterback Ryan Finley.

Fellow rookie, defensive end Maxx Crosby recorded a team rookie-record four sacks and finished with five tackles (4 solo) and three tackles for a loss. It was by far Crosby’s best game as a pro. He had a sack and forced fumble to end Cincinnati’s first drive, dropped Finley again in the third quarter and then sacked him twice in the fourth.

Finley completed 13-of-31 passes for 115 yards.

The Bengals are continuing to spiral down the drain as the only winless team in the NFL. Its the second time in Cincinnati’s history that the team has started a season 0-10, matching the 1993 team for the worst start in franchise history.

Coincidentally, it was the Raiders in 1993 that allowed the Bengals to earn their first win of the season but didn’t allow lighting to strike twice today.

With Cincinnati trailing 17-10 in the final minutes of the game, rookie cornerback Trayvon Mullen’s interception sealed the win for the Silver and Black. It was the third-straight game that Oakland’s defense closed out the game with a big stop.

The Raiders look to extend their winning streak to four games, as they will travel east in Week 12 to take on the New York Jets next Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ to begin a two-game road trip.

The Jets (3-7) demolished Washington (1-9), 34-17, at FedEx Field Sunday behind 293 yards and four touchdown passes from second-year quarterback Sam Darnold.

On the Raiders podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 Joe talk a little about the job that the Raiders pass rusher Benson Mayowa the one head coach Jon Gruden refers to as Benny and the Jets. Mayowa has seven sacks tied for 11th in the NFL.

#2 Mayowa said 2019 has been a grind but he said he’s shown flashes and credits his line mates for the coverage

#3 Defensive end Dion Jordan said he’s glad to be back at his first practice on Wednesday. Jordan is coming off a six game suspension in 2014, suspended all of 2015, didn’t play in 2016, he did play 17 games over the 2017-18 for Seattle, and was suspended for ten games for using Adderall this season.

#4 Asked on Wednesday if head coach Jon Gruden would consider sending someone to Atlanta on Saturday for Colin Kaepernick’s workout Gruden said he didn’t know and that he was focused on the upcoming game with the Cincinnati Bengals.

#5 Joe just because the Bengals are 0-9 you know what they say about any given Sunday could this be a contest or a rout for the Raiders.

Raiders look for 3rd straight home win with Bengals coming to town

OAKLAND — With back-to-back wins at home, the Raiders look to finish off their three-game home stand at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum with a win over the visiting Cincinnati Bengals as the two teams hook up for action in Week 11. This will be the first matchup between the two clubs since 2015, in a game that the Bengals won convincingly, 33-13 in Oakland.

Cincinnati currently holds a three-game winning streak over Oakland, with the Raiders last defeating the Bengals, 20-17, in Oakland back in 2009.

Kickoff for this battle in the AFC is at 1:25 p.m. PT and will be broadcast on CBS.

In Week 10, the Raiders defeated their AFC West rival, the Los Angeles Chargers, 26-24, to improve their record to 5-4. Oakland sealed their second-straight victory at home behind rookie running back Josh Jacobs’ 18-yard touchdown run in the final minute of regulation. Jacobs finished with 71 yards on 16 carries and three catches for 30 yards in the game.

In the process, Jacobs became just the 16th player in NFL history to rush for at least 800 yards in his first nine career games per Elias Sports Bureau. Currently, Jacobs has rushed for 811 yards this season. His seven rushing touchdowns are tied with Arthur Whittington for second-most by a rookie in franchise history.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr recorded his 18th career fourth-quarter comeback, and his 19th career game-winning drive. Carr threw for 218 yards and one touchdown. On the Raiders’ final offensive drive of the game, Carr completed 6-of-8 passes for 57 yards that would setup Jacobs’ go-ahead touchdown.

But the real story of the game was the play of Oakland’s defense, who made life extremely difficult for Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

For the second-straight game, safety Karl Joseph would make the game-sealing play, intercepting Rivers in the final seconds of the game.

Safety Erik Harris recorded two interceptions for Oakland on the night in the first-quarter, which included a 56-yard pick-six that extended the Raiders’ lead to 10-0. It was Harris’ second pick-six of the season.

Oakland registered five sacks on Rivers, with rookie defensive end Clelin Ferrell posting a career-high 2.5 sacks, and 1.5 sacks by defensive end Benson Mayowa. Mayowa now has a career-high seven sacks.

Defensive end Maxx Crosby and defensive tackle Maurice Hurst each logged 0.5 sacks in the game.

Cincinnati (0-9) is coming off a 49-13 thrashing at the hands of their AFC North rival, the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10.

Rookie quarterback Ryan Finley made his debut for Cincinnati and had a game to forget.

Finley, who replaced franchise quarterback Andy Dalton after Dalton was benched during the team’s bye week, completed 16-of-30 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown and one interception that was returned 89 yards for a pick-six by Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters that made the score 28-3 midway through the second quarter.

The loss to the Ravens were the Bengals’ 11th-straight loss dating back to the last season, tying the longest two-season losing streak in club history per Elias Sports Bureau. They’re one loss away from matching the worst start in club history.

Following Sunday’s game, Oakland heads east to New York to take on the Jets at MetLife Stadium in Week 12, while the Bengals return home to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.
