The Raiders franchise has been plagued with being the victims of some terrible calls, and we dive into the top-5 in team history.

Throughout the history of the now-Las Vegas Raiders franchise, the team has been on the wrong side of their fair share of bad calls. In fact, some of the games are the most legendary in NFL history, adding to the point that the organization has a reputation of being snake-bitten.

Here are the five times the Raiders got absolutely hosed by the officials.

The worst calls to ever go against the Raiders

The Final Game in Oakland

You do not have to reach back that far in your memory to remind yourself of the first game on our list, as it just happened to be the Raiders final game in the Bay Area. Playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars, with their playoff hopes still alive, the Silver and Black appeared to lock up a victory.

On a second-and-9 with a little over two minutes left in the game, Derek Carr ran for 12 yards and got the first down. Once he had the first down secure, Carr slid inbounds, which should have kept the clock moving right up until the two minute warning.

Instead, the refs blew the call, said Carr was out of bounds, and stopped the clock. Oakland had to run another play before the two minute warning, giving the Jaguars more time, which they used to go down the field for the game-winning touchdown with 31 seconds left.

When all was said and done, the Raiders blew a 13-point halftime lead, allowed the Jags to score 17 unanswered in the second half, and lost their final game inside the Coliseum.
