The Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Rams are in the fourth quarter of the second Monday Night Football game of the night, and the wheels have come off for the Raiders in the second half.
A 13-10 Raiders lead at halftime has turned into a 23-13 Rams lead in the fourth quarter. Oakland appeared to have a nice drive brewing, with quarterback Derek Carr standing in the pocket and zipping a pass to Jared Cook for a 32-yard gain.
So after you see that pass from Carr, it’s really amazing that he could make arguably the worst pass we’ve seen in the NFL in Week 1 (or at least the worst pass that didn’t come from Nathan Peterman), on the very next play.
What the hell is this?
Throwing a lob off his back foot, with no Raiders anywhere close, and with Rams linebacker Cory Littleton standing right there.
Jason Witten tried to explain it… and basically just said that Carr should’ve thrown the ball to someone else.
