The NFL regular season is in the books and the Raiders wrapped up their first season in Las Vegas by pulling out a 32-31 win over Denver. After Josh Jacobs scored the potential game tying touchdown for Las Vegas with 24 seconds left in the game, Raiders coach Jon Gruden decided to go for the win instead of the tie with a two point conversion. Quarterback David Carr hit Darren Waller for the conversion, giving the Raiders the lead. Amazingly, the Broncos got in position for a potential game winning 63 yard field goal but the try was blocked by Maxx Crosby to seal the win for Las Vegas. Jacobs finished the game with 89 yards rushing and went over the 1,000 yard mark for the season. Darren Waller caught nine passes for 117 yards and David Carr threw for 371 yards and two TD’s. The Raiders finished the season 8-8 and will pick 17th in the NFL draft.
