The NFL is now disrespecting the Las Vegas Raiders despite being on a three-game win streak and being one of the league’s hottest offensive teams right now.

I know, a few weeks ago the Raiders were one of the worst teams in the league, as they melted down every week, but things have truly turned around now.

Yes, I know we have thought that several times this season already, but now the Raiders are actually showing improvements. I mean, heck, they are on a three-game win streak.

But the NFL is disrespecting them as if they are still 2-7.

We have had a few games flexed in the NFL now, and what that means is the games get moved to a different time slot. The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers had their game flexed a few weeks ago, as they were supposed to play at 1:30 PM PST, but instead played on Sunday Night Football.

That happened to the Raiders, but in a bad way.

They were supposed to play the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football in Week 15, but instead, the game was flexed, which means the New York Giants and Washington Commanders will now be playing on Sunday Night Football.

Here is the statement put out by the NFL:

“The Week 15 New York Giants at Washington Commanders game will be played Sunday, December 18 at 8:20 PM ET on NBC, and the New England Patriots-Las Vegas Raiders game will move to 4:05 PM ET on FOX, the NFL announced today.”

This is disrespectful for a few reasons. One, the Raiders are somewhat must-see TV right now with the way their offense is playing. The Patriots aren’t a bad team either, and both quarterbacks are having good seasons.

The Commanders and Giants just played this past Sunday, and it ended in a tie. No one wants to see two below-average quarterbacks go head-to-head for a tie on prime-time TV.

Now the Raiders just have to continue their win streak if they want this to not happen again.

Should the Raiders re-sign Josh Jacobs after this year?
