2023 Las Vegas Raiders Playoff Picture
Although the culture and "feel" surrounding the Raiders have improved since Josh McDaniels was let go, the team is facing an uphill battle in terms of making the playoffs this year. The Raiders' quarterback situation simply isn't good enough to make a true run at the postseason, and the odds currently reflect that.
While most fans don't like hearing this, the best thing for the Raiders would be to lose as many games as possible to improve their draft position. This way, they have a more reasonable shot at drafting a top quarterback in the first round and have first dibs on the best remaining talent through the rest of the draft.
