The incredibly ugly ending to the Patriots-Raiders game won’t soon be forgotten by the NFL.
The game was tied 24-24 with New England needing only a knee to start overtime. Instead, the Patriots opted to have Ramondre Stevens run the ball laterally before Jacoby Meyers’ fumbled pass to quarterback Mack Jones was caught by Raiders pass rusher Chandler Jones and returned to the endzone for the game-winning touchdown, giving the Raiders a touchdown. 30-24. The decision was terrifying, but the reactions, as you can imagine, were priceless.
Much of the humor in the NFL world was directed at Mack, who was left helpless trying to tackle Chandler at the end of the game.
Here are some reactions from Twitter.
