The Raiders have won each of their last two games, but the postgame response was very different in Week 15 than it was on Saturday.

In Week 15, the Raiders got to celebrate their first playoff berth since 2002 while looking ahead to a shot at clinching the AFC West title and a first-round bye. Quarterback Derek Carr fractured his fibula on Saturday, though, and that made for a far more muted celebration tinged with wistfulness about what Carr’s loss means to their hopes of making noise come the postseason.

For left tackle Donald Penn, postgame musings centered on the fact that linebacker Trent Cole tackled Carr on the play that ended with his injury.
