You Pod to Win the Game

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback had watched the score helplessly from the sideline as it sealed his team's 0-1 start to the season. "That's on me," Jackson appeared to say as he pointed to his chest. 

Jackson didn't allow Jones to beat him off the line of scrimmage. He didn't call the defense that let Jones roam free through the Ravens secondary. But he did lose the fumble that set up the overtime score. And another one that help ensure the game got to overtime to begin with. 

“That ticked me off," Jackson told reporters after the game. "I hate fumbles. I hate any type of turnover. Two hands on the ball. I just could’ve taken a sack, if anything.”

He's right. Other than allowing the Raiders defense to score, Jackson's fumble in overtime pretty much amounted to a worst-case scenario. Granted, he didn't have much chance to make anything happen on the third-and-7 play. He was immediately surrounded by Las Vegas Raiders defenders as a five-man blitz collapsed the pocket at the snap. Even a magician as adept as Jackson couldn't escape that rush. 

At that point, his only job was to protect the ball. And he didn't. The Raiders recovered his fumble at Baltimore's 27-yard line. Two plays later, the game was over. Raiders 33, Ravens 27.

Jackson didn't save his lament strictly for the sideline and the postgame news conference. He was still steaming when he logged onto Twitter, where he used some notably saltier language.

Jackson's not only upset about his overtime turnover. He also lost a fumble early in the fourth quarter that set the Raiders up to tie the game. 

With Baltimore leading 17-10, Jackson scrambled under pressure on second-and-6. He didn't get the first down. He lost the ball for the first turnover of the game, setting the Raiders up with first down at Baltimore's 41-yard line.

Five plays later, the Raiders scored the game-tying touchdown. 

A lot of swings added up to the Raiders' wild win as they finally opened up Allegiant Stadium in front of fans. It's safe to say they probably wouldn't have walked away victorious without Jackson's mistakes. He knows it. And he's taking accountability. 

It's a tough way for a Super Bowl hopeful and a former league MVP to open the season. But it's one game in a season that's been expanded to 17. Here's guessing Jackson accounts for considerably more game winners than losers moving forward. 

In the meantime, he and the Ravens are going to have to sit with this one. But they can't steam too long. The Kansas City Chiefs are coming to town on Sunday.  

The Ravens made two roster moves on Tuesday

Raiders edge rushers come ready vs Ravens, wreak havoc on Lamar Jackson

Michael Thomas is still recovering from offseason ankle surgery.

The Cowboys signed Gerald McCoy before the 2020 season, but he didn’t make it to the season. Dallas released the defensive lineman after he ruptured his right quadriceps tendon in a training camp practice. He rehabbed in hopes of another chance to continue his career and signed with the Raiders on Aug. 4. McCoy, though, [more]

Singapore's finance minister Lawrence Wong said on Tuesday companies would move their business to other places if the financial hub's policies turned overly restrictive, which would send its small and open economy into a tailspin. "If we are not careful, decades of hard work to build up our business hub will be wasted, our economy will contract and go down in a tailspin," Wong said in parliament. "We will end up with far worse problems and it is not the foreigners but Singaporeans who will ultimately pay the price."

Jerry Jeudy's injury will keep him sidelined for the beginning of the 2021 season.

BERN, Switzerland (Reuters) -Substitute Jordan Siebatcheu scored a stoppage-time winner to earn Young Boys a 2-1 victory over 10-man Manchester United in their Champions League opener on Tuesday. Siebatcheu pounced on a woeful back pass from Jesse Lingard in the fifth minute of stoppage time to spark wild scenes of celebration and ensure United got their Champions League campaign off to the worst possible start. United looked to be cruising to victory after Cristiano Ronaldo, who equalled the all-time Champions League appearance record in Bern, matching former Real Madrid team mate Iker Casillas' 177 games, fired his side in front in the 13th minute.

We look at winners and losers from the Ravens' Week 1 loss to the Raiders.

Aaron Rodgers is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, but there's enough sample size to indicate a way to stop his excellence.

It's called polonium, and it's nasty stuff.

Pride flags at NFL games are not a common sight.

Ratings for the NFL's first week aren't yet back to pre-pandemic levels, but they're edging closer.

Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning didn't initially see eye to eye with his old rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, when it comes to the NFL's new jersey number rule, but one play in Monday night's game seems to have changed his opinion.

Las Vegas fans will remember Monday night for a long time.

Down a few offensive parts, it's Lamar Jackson's time to shine.

Former Auburn football placekicker Daniel Carlson had quite a game in the Las Vegas Raiders’ season opener. Carlson nailed a career-long field goal from 55 yards to send the game versus the Ravens into overtime.

Ultimately, Carlson’s overtime kick paved the way for the Raiders’ win, which involved a confusing delay of game penalty and the team being unable to find their kicker. Either way, the Raiders won and Daniel Carlson secured a new career-long stat.

After all, there’s a reason that he earned the nickname “Legatron” when he played Auburn football. Kicking off what has been referred to as “The Carlson Era” on the Plains (pun intended), Daniel Carlson remains a favorite of Auburn fans, and they were hype to see his success in the NFL:

Even Carson’s former Auburn football teammate Kerryon Johnson got in on the action:

I’d literally bet my life that @DanielCarlson38 comes through on a field goal EVERYTIME!!!! Ice in his veins! https://t.co/MXKLc8A47L

Carlson was originally drafted in 2018 by the Minnesota Vikings but was released just two weeks into the season after a rough start. That same year, he joined what is now the Las Vegas Raiders and set the franchise record for single-season field goals percentage at 94.1.

In his NFL career so far, Carlson has made 71 of 84 attempted field goals for a percentage of 84.5 He’s also made 106 of 110 extra-point attempts for a 96.4 percent accuracy. Carlson’s next kicks will come in the Raiders’ second game of the season at Pittsburgh on Sunday.
