That Brutal Chicago Loss
This will haunt McDaniels for the remainder of his coaching career. The Raiders entered this game as favorites against another downtrodden franchise in the Chicago Bears. One of the stories of the game was Tyson Bagent, a former Division II quarterback, who led three touchdown drives. The undrafted player humiliated Las Vegas with his confident display.
The Raiders had quarterback problems of their own as former Patriot Brian Hoyer replaced the injured Jimmy Garoppolo. However, he had three interceptions including a costly pick-six as Aidan O’Connell sat watching. McDaniels received criticism for not throwing his rookie into the fray (via AP News).
