Will the Raiders really make the playoffs?

  John Gruden

Reads head coach John Gruden gives a fist pump after a 17-10 victory over the Bengals.

Hell, the Raiders are going to make the playoffs, right?

After surviving a final setback on Sunday against the victorious Bengals, Auckland is 6-4 looking to the horizon on Monday morning with a smile on its collective faces. FiveThirtyEight gives the Raiders a 42% chance of reaching the postseason right now, though it hits over 50% with a win over the hollow Jets at MetLife Stadium in Week 12.

Their remaining schedule is as follows:

• Jets (3-7 )
• Leaders (6-4) *
• Titans (5-5)
• Jaguars (4-6)
• Chargers (4-6) *
• Broncos ( 3-7)

* The Chiefs and Charges play Monday night football. For those who regularly read Morning Seduction, you may be aware of how I thought this season would go in Auckland. John Gruden has spent most of this offseason as a devastating, destructive ham, and yet, the team has come up with not only his chaotic roster strategy but one of the toughest logistics schedules in the NFL this season. The 2019 Raiders are the equivalent of a contractor who throws a bunch of nail-infested wood waste into a wood chip and watches a sensible colonial emerge from the other side.

In some ways he convinced the rest of the team that most of the unhappiness they were facing this season had nothing to do with the people running the Raiders. And it works.
