Raiders lose three in a row with lose to Cincinnati Bengals Last Night
The Las Vegas Raiders are struggling mightily right now, Raider Nation. On Sunday, November 21, 2021, the Raiders losing streak slid to three games in a row.
With a 32-13 lost at home to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Raiders once again let a competitive game slip away in the second half.
The Raiders began the game fast. Kicker Daniel Carlson hit a 26-yard field goal to put the Raiders up (3-0) with 10:37 in the first quarter.
The Bengals responded as quarterback Joe Burrow led a drive down to the Las Vegas 36-yard line. Settling for an Evan McPherson 54-yard field goal, they tied the score at (3-3) at the end of one.
After both teams punted, the Raiders began the second quarter with the ball. They drove down the field to the Cincinnati 29-yard line.
Carlson kicked another field goal for a (6-3) lead. With 4:15 left in the first half, Bengals running back Joe Burrow ran the ball in for an 11-yard touchdown.
That gave the Bengals their first lead of the game at (10-6) at halftime.
As Raiders fans know, Allegiant Stadium and the Raiders offer celebrity musicians and guests the opportunity to perform during the half time break.
Last week, it was DJ Marshmello rocking the house down. He didn’t disappoint.
This week, it was long time singer and hardcore rock star, Sammy Hagar. He has 25 platinum albums with sales exceeding 50 million worldwide.
He lead the bands, Montrose and Van Halen before joining his latest group, Chickenfoot.
He was very excited to play in the halftime show and had this to say in a statement.
“I have a great deal of respect for Mark Davis and it’s incredible what he and the team have brought to Las Vegas, which is like a second home to me. I’m also excited to be here for a game that’s honoring the military. I’ve done some cool things in my life, and this is up there.”Sammy Hagar
Hagar also has a residency in Las Vegas. He performs to a sold-out Las Vegas crowd with his critically acclaimed “Sammy and Friends” show at the STRAT.
The Raiders got the ball to start the third quarter. Their drive stalled and they were forced to punt the ball back to Bengals.
A second field goal by McPherson increased the lead to (13-6) heading into the final quarter. The Raiders were still in the game, keeping it competitive.
In the fourth quarter, the Bengals added to their lead with McPherson’s third field goal of the day. With 11:42 left in the game, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Foster Moreau.
An extra point made by Carlson cut the deficit to (16-13).
The Bengals then started to pull away. Jamar Chase reeled in a 6-yard pass from Burrow for a touchdown. But McPherson missed an extra point.
It kept the lead to a two possession game with over 5 minutes remaining.
The Raiders threw a costly interception which the Bengals added another touchdown by Joe Mixon putting the score at (29-13). The Raiders then fumbled the ball and McPherson added an insurance field goal.
The Bengals won 32-13.
The Raiders (5-5) will travel to AT&T Stadium to take on the Dallas Cowboys (7-3).
