This weeks turning point play of the game came with 1:13 left in the third
quarter.The Raiders trailed 20-3 and on the 11th play of a 74-yard
drive Cheap

, the Raiders faced a 1st and goal from the
Chargers one yard line.This was a crucial play in the game for many reasons, but
to this point the Raiders offense had done very little in the game.It was
imperative that they finish the drive with a touchdown and cut the Chargers lead
to ten. Rather than pounding the ball up the gut with Marshawn Lynch, Gruden
opted to get cute and play fake to Lynch.The result was a disaster.Derek Carr’s
pass was intercepted by Melvin Ingram.Here is how Derek Carr described the
play.“They did a good job of covering the first two guys Youth

beat his guy. I saw that he beat his guy and by the time I threw it, Melvin
Ingram who had been on the run made a great play. I wasn’t trying to force it. I
saw our guy win and I was trying to throw it in the backline to him, but they
made a play and that was the one.”When you watch the play from Carr’s
perspective you can see that indeed Carrier did get open late.What Carr did not
account for was Melvin Ingram who was helping in coverage on Jared Cook.Ingram
read Carr’s eyes and at the last moment changed directions towards where Carr
was looking.The play Gruden would have rather seen was for Carr to throw the
ball out of the end zone and give Lynch an opportunity on second down.The
interception was a total momentum killer Womens

game.Report: QB AJ McCarron to Raiders is latest among flurry of trades While we
are still digesting the idea that Khalil Mack was traded to the Bears in one of
the worst trades in history, the Raiders continue to wheel and deal. The latest
was getting the backup QB they were unable to discover between EJ Manuel and
Connor Cook.AJ McCarron is coming to Oakland in a trade with the Bills,
according to Ian Rapoport.They send the Bills a fifth round pick in the deal.The
former Alabama QB was a 5th round pick in the same 2014 draft that yielded the
Raiders Khalil Mack and Derek Carr. He spent his first four seasons as a backup
in Cincinnati and last season as a backup in Buffalo. Now he will be a backup in
Oakland! Along with those two blockbuster trades Youth

, the Raiders also sent Shalom Luani to the
Seahawks. No compensation has been revealed on that trade yet either.All this
and we still have no heard from the Raiders hopes to get something for Mario
Edwards Jr in trade.Follow @LeviDamien
