Lynch is in the last year of his contract with Oakland. It might be Raiders fan’s last look at their hometown guy playing in his hometown.

Hopefully Lynch is able to return for the final home game and have himself a decent showing before riding off into the sunset, on an injury cart we assume, if that’s what he wants to do.
