Some Raiders fans processed their stunning loss to the Rams on Thursday Night Football by fighting on the concourse at SoFi Stadium.
The Raiders spent much of the last week talking about the progress they’d made on a three-game winning streak. It seemed like they’d turned a corner.
Then Thursday night happened.
Las Vegas was cruising against the wounded Rams, leading 16-3 as the final minutes of action approached. They lost 17-16 after letting Baker Mayfield, who had joined LA two days earlier, engineer a 98-yard scoring drive to win the game.
A particular group of Raiders fans may not have taken that so well.

There’s no indication of what set off the brawl, but the Rams fan recording it sure had fun expressing his feelings on the game and the scuffle at the end of that video. It’s been a tough season for LA with the wheels all but falling off. Ending a six-game losing streak with a shocking comeback win over the Raiders had to feel good.
As for the Raiders, tt’s bad enough to lose a game in embarrassing fashion. Those fans had to go out on the concourse and embarrass themselves all over again.
Vegas can lick its wounds over the weekend but they’ll need to be up for it next week when they host the Patriots. At this point, it might not just be about salvaging the season. Josh McDaniels’ job may be on the line. How could it not be after suffering a fourth loss this season after leading at halftime by double-digits?
The Rams will see what else Mayfield can do next week when they head to Green Bay to face the Packers.
