You had a feeling something was going to happen in Sin City. With the Raiders at 3-5 on the year, fans are not happy. Things reached a new low on Monday night, with the Raiders getting dominated on the road by the Detroit Lions.

Now, the team will have a new head coach moving forward. In a bit of a stunner, owner Mark Davis has decided to fire head coach Josh McDaniels. McDaniels arrived to Vegas with a ton of promise and people felt like he was the right man for the job. Now, though, he's out of one:

The Raiders have been a major disappointment over the past two seasons. The team landed Davante Adams and fans were hopeful that he and Derek Carr would turn things around for the AFC West side. However, Adams is frustrated with the offense and Carr is now the starter for New Orleans.

McDaniels clearly wasn't the right hire for this team from the start. Now, Antonio Pierce has taken over as interim head coach.
