The Las Vegas Raiders have had a brutal start to the 2022 season after most thought they'd be able to compete for a playoff spot.

New head coach Josh McDaniels is still in search of his first win as the Raiders have lost all three games by a combined 13 points. Following the team's latest loss, there were reportedly a few important meetings that took place.

McDaniels reportedly met with owner Mark Davis, while the rest of the team reportedly held a players-only meeting.

Here's more, via Pro Football Network:

New coach Josh McDaniels — determined to install his shared vision for how to run a football team along with his friend, general manager Dave Ziegler, after their success with the New England Patriots — met privately with owner Mark Davis following the game.

But that’s not all. Players, led by Pro Bowl defensive end Maxx Crosby, veteran quarterback Derek Carr, and other team leaders, held a players’ only meeting, according to league sources.

If the Raiders want to make the playoffs this season it starts with a pivotal divisional contest against the Denver Broncos this weekend.

Can the Raiders win?
