The Raiders, who this year have been on the wrong end of seemingly every close game they’ve played, mounted possibly the most incredible finish in NFL history when they intercepted a Patriots lateral on their attempt at a game-winning play to score themselves in walk-off fashion.
The final whacky play was set up in the first place by a final minute pass from Derek Carr to Keelan Cole, whose catch in real time looked like it shouldn’t have counted, but was ruled a TD. The play went to scoring review and after long deliberation and frankly terrible camera angles, was deemed the stand after no evidence could be found evident enough to overturn it, even though it clearly looked like Cole’s toe was on the line.
12 hours later, and we have what refs wish they had in real time, as a still image of the moment’s Cole’s foot made contact with the grass shows there was no space between his toe and the white line with his foot kicking up white paint.
