Heading into Week 15, the Oakland Raiders were looking to upset the playoff-bound Kansas City Chiefs, but suffered their most embarrassing loss in franchise history. With the defense unable to stop Jamaal Charles, the Pro Bowler had five total touchdowns and helped destroy the Raiders, 56-31.
With the Raiders evaluating the quarterback position, both Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor struggled. The rookie quarterback had his worst performance of his young career as he threw a career-high five interceptions and had a fumble. While he did have two touchdowns and 297 yards, head coach Dennis Allen eventually replaced him with Terrelle Pryor.
Despite the embarrassing loss, Charles Woodson reiterated his desires to return to Oakland next season. With the team having ample cap room this upcoming off-season, the team should be able to re-sign Woodson and keep the former Defensive Player of the Year in Oakland for another season.
