The Las Vegas Raiders certainly had a disappointing 2022-2023 season.
That being said, one of their foes in the AFC West had a rough end to their season this weekend.
The Los Angeles Chargers got out to a massive early lead against the Jacksonville Jaguars in their Wild Card matchup. The Chargers had a 27-0 lead at one point in the game versus the Jags.
It looked like they would run into the second round of the postseason. Instead, the Jags slowly but surely worked themselves back into the game.
Ultimately, Jacksonville kicked a game winning field goal as time expired. It was a heartbreaking loss for a franchise that keeps hitting unfortunate events.
In some ways, they have done it to themselves. When it comes to the coaching carousel, the Chargers continually make rough decisions.
They have hired three head coaches during hiring cycles that don’t seem to live up to another candidate that they could have hired.
Andy Reid, Sean McDermott, and now, Brian Daboll are all examples.

This shit is unbelievable.
Some would say it is bad luck, but others would call it a problem in the front office.
The Raiders and Denver Broncos didn’t see the playoffs this season, but their season may have still been less painful than the Chargers’ season.
The AFC West was a wild ride throughout the year, and the loss by Los Angeles truly put a bow on that. Now, the Kansas City Chiefs are the only team from the division still alive.
