Raiders closing in on 16th straight loss


Only seven games separate the Raiders from the second ever 0-16 season in NFL history.  Only one game separates them from zero wins in 16 straight games.

With nine losses to start 2014 and six to end 2013, a defeat at San Diego on Sunday will push the Oakland losing streak to 16 in a row.  The team’s last win came on November 17, 2013 against the Texans.

The 2008 Lions ultimately lost 19 straight, and the Raiders of 1961-62 lost 19 in a row as well.  The Buccaneers hold the longest losing steak in league history at 26 games.

If the Raiders finish the season 0-16, they’ll be only four games away from tying the record.  Hooray?
