Every Sunday at the Oakland Coliseum during the 2016 season has felt like one big party — until Week 16.
The Raiders were again rolling to what appeared to be another win when quarterback and rejuvenating sparkplug Derek Carr went down with a leg injury. He knew it immediately, and it didn’t take long for team doctors to also learn the severity of the injury: a broken fibula, surgery on deck and an indefinite amount of time away from the field.
The devastating injury ended the party, which turned somber and resembled a funeral inside the Raiders’ locker room. Suddenly, a 12-win team on the precipice of its first postseason appearance since 2002 felt like it had been cut at the knee.
“It feels just like we lost,” edge rusher Bruce Irvin said after the game, which the Raiders won 33-25, via CSN Bay Area. “I mean, we lost our best friend, our leader. He is the leader of this team, both him and Khalil Mack. Just seeing him go down like that, it hurt us.
“It didn’t really feel like we won, but we got to continue to keep fighting. He won’t want to see us get down
