The Week That Was: Khalil Mack Makes History, Raiders Wrap Up 2015 Season

Posted Jan 8, 2016

Even though the regular season wrapped up Sunday, it's been a busy week for the Oakland Raiders.

The 2015 regular season drew to a close last Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium as the Oakland Raiders lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 23-17.

Head Coach Jack Del Rio’s team didn’t play their best game of the season, but even so, they had a chance to win the game on their final possession, but came up just a bit short.

With the loss, the team finished the season 7-9, but before we shift our focus to the offseason, let’s catch you up on the week that was.

Raiders Drop Regular Season Finale To Chiefs

The Silver and Black’s defense once again rose to the occasion in Kansas City, but the offense just couldn’t get enough points on the board to secure an eighth win for the Raiders.

Quarterback Derek Carr threw for just 194 yards, and the ground game couldn’t get rolling, and after falling behind early, the Raiders just couldn’t complete their comeback bid.

Although the Raiders lost the game and missed out on the postseason, they did enjoy a four-win improvement from their 3-13 effort in 2014.

Mack Earns All-Pro Honors

Khalil Mack made a little history Friday morning, as he was the first player to be named Associated Press All-Pro First Team at two separate positions.

After his impressive 2015 season, which concluded with 15 total sacks, the second-year standout was named a First-Team All-Pro at both defensive end and at linebacker.

Not a bad effort from the University of Buffalo-product.
