Thanksgiving question kicked Jon Gruden out of the edge

Jon Gruden: Thanksgiving Grinch.

The Raiders coach wasn’t in a festive mood on Wednesday when asked if he had a favorite dish to put on his table on Thursday for Thanksgiving dinner.

“You’re killing me with some of your questions, the man,” Gruden told reporters asking. “I wish I had a place to go. Now we are losing to Kansas City. We are lucky to have a place to go.”

Gruden seems to have survived an overwhelming defeat to the Chiefs on Sunday night. The Raiders took the lead with 1:43 remaining, but had Patrick Mahomes play the hero, causing another game-winning drive with 28 seconds to spare.

Despite the 35-31 defeat, Gruden still had a lot to thank. The Raiders are 6-4 after returning a total of 11-21 to the sideline in Gruden’s first two seasons. They missed the chance to conclude the AFC West Chiefs match, but they have the first chance to play in the playoffs since 2016.

After Thanksgiving, Gruden and the Raiders will face the Falcons on Sunday and Jets the following week at MetLife Stadium.
