The Raiders win a road game and all anyone wants to talk about is is/when their head coach will be fired.
After signing Tommy Kelly to a seven-year deal worth up to $50.5 million ($18.125 million guaranteed), many wondered why the Raiders were paying so much for Kelly.
Now that he's been arrested for driving under the influence, the team can expect to be criticized even more.
The Raiders don't need distractions, but the team has a way of creating them.
From Lane Kiffin being honest to a fault, Al Davis' indecision about firing Kiffin, the team trotting out defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to contradict Kiffin and players and coaches wondering what's going to happen next, the Raiders are setting themselves up for a bad week.
Adding Kelly being arrest to the mix means a player that shuns media attention will find a lot of reporters and television cameras looking to ask him about his situation.
Are these Raiders mentally tough enough to ignore the distractions and beat a Buffalo Bills team that is better than a lot of people realize.
The team hasn't shown in recent years it can sustain success amid coaching instability. Assuming Kiffin is at work tomorrow, he'll have a tough job on his hands.
