You Pod to Win the Game

In overtime, the Las Vegas Raiders recovered a Lamar Jackson fumble. They were already on the fringe of 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 end it. It was only second down but Gruden sent on the field-goal team to try and win the game.  

The problem: Carlson was not around. He wasn't expecting to kick it on second down. The Raiders had to take a delay of game penalty. 

"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." 

They can laugh about it now. Gruden sent the offense back on the field after Carlson was MIA and the Raiders lost 5 yards on a penalty. Derek Carr hit Zay Jones on a game-winning touchdown pass on the next play. 

At the end of a bizarre and fun Monday night game, the Raiders not being able to find their kicker for a game-winning field-goal attempt was fitting. It would have been a story told forever if the Raiders didn't win. 

"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."

All's well that end's well. Especially for Carlson. He might have never lived it down if the Raiders didn't end up winning it. 

Among the many twists and turns that Monday night’s game took before ending with Derek Carr‘s touchdown pass to Zay Jones was the Raiders taking a delay of game penalty when they wanted to try a field goal on the previous play.

After a premature bench-clearing celebration and a couple of blunders that almost cost the Raiders the game, the party could finally begin for real after the first game with fans in Las Vegas. The Raiders won an exhilarating and exhausting season opener thanks to a furious rally, a stellar defensive play from Carl Nassib and a perfect play call that produced a 31-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr to Zay Jones that gave the Raiders a 33-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday called on the Federal Reserve to break apart Wells Fargo & Co, arguing the latest fine against the bank shows it to be an "irredeemable repeat offender." In a letter sent to the Fed, Warren urged the central bank to revoke Wells Fargo's status as a financial holding company and order it to sell off its investment banking and nonbanking activities, citing the bank's years-long struggle to address regulatory shortcomings. The bank has paid over $5 billion in fines and has been placed under an unprecedented asset cap by the Fed for selling potentially millions of fake accounts to customers, among other issues, in a series of longrunning scandals https://www.reuters.com/article/us-wells-fargo-scandal-deal/wells-fargo-to-pay-3-billion-to-u-s-admits-pressuring-workers-in-fake-accounts-scandal-idUSKBN20F2KN that led to the ousters of two separate chief executives.
