Last night’s Monday Night Football game was super entertaining. In overtime, the Las Vegas Raiders recovered a Lamar Jackson fumble. They were basically in field-goal range and after a wild, wacky game that included an end-zone interception after the Raiders thought they had the game won, Jon Gruden just wanted to get the game over with.
It was only 2nd down, but Gruden sent the field-goal team to try and win the game.
Unfortunately the kicker was nowhere to be found. The Raiders had to take a delay of game penalty because the Kicker wasn’t ready to kick a FG on second down.
“Our kicker was warming up in the net,” Gruden said in his media conference afterward, giving the smirks and smiles only Gruden can. “No one could find him.”
"Our kicker was warming up in the net … no one could find him. But things worked out."

Derek Carr also had no clue what was going on:
“I didn’t know what happened,” Carr told the media afterward. “I turned my back and I was just praying we made it. I turned around and it was a delay of game. I was like ‘OK, he can still make this.’ Then it’s ‘Get back out there!’ I hear in my headset, coach calling personnel, so I start running back out there.”
At the end of the night it all worked out. The Raiders ended up with a memorable touchdown to win the game in OT.
All’s well that end’s well.
