Raiders News: Silver and Black have 6th most playoff wins
The Las Vegas Raiders have made a lot of changes this offseason with one goal in mind, getting their playoff performance back to where it was.
Of 1967 to 2003the Raiders have won 25 playoff games including three superbowls, and earned the nickname “The Team of Decades”. However, they have only made two playoff appearances since then and both were quick first-round exits.
Despite being shut out for nearly 20 years, the Silver and Black still rank sixth in playoff wins during the Super Bowl era by CBS Sports, and their lack of success in recent years almost makes that stat even more impressive. That’s how good and dominant these teams led by John Madden and Tom Flores were.
The Raiders track a few hated rivals in the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots for first place overall and in the AFC. But they run all the AFC West teams with the Denver Broncos led by two victories, the Kansas City Chiefs behind by nine and the Los Angeles Chargers bringing up the rear with just 11 playoff wins. The Raiders even lead the Seattle Seahawks by eight “Ws”, who played in the division from 1977 to 2001.
Las Vegas hopes the additions of head coach Josh McDaniels, wide receiver Davante Adams and passing thrower Chandler Jones, among others, will help them get back on track and hit the milestone in 2022. They have had a chance to win at least the eventual AFC champions. – the Cincinnati Bengals – overtime last January, so expectations are a bit higher this time around, especially after adding a few superstars in the offseason.
