The New England Patriots came close to beating the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 15, but in the end shot themselves in the foot one too many time. The team of head coach Bill Belichick ended up losing with a final score of 30-24, in large part because of a lateral gone wrong in the final seconds of the game.
As a result, New England now finds itself with a 7-7 record and as the eighth seed in the AFC just outside of the playoff picture once again. While there is still a path into the tournament, the loss in Las Vegas makes it a difficult journey given the three games left on the schedule.
