Raiders news: Las Vegas is one of five undefeated NFL teams
Remarkably, four of the five teams preparing for Week 4 with perfect records didn’t make the playoffs last season. The Rams are the only undefeated team to make the 14-team playoffs in 2020.
This is the 3rd time since the start of the 8 division format in 2002 that at least 4 teams that missed the playoffs started 3-0 the following season. Others:
2013: Miami, NO, KC, Chicago
2003: Denver, Caroline, KC, Seattle, Minnesota https://t.co/oUKb0v78Vb
