FINAL/OT: Raiders win 33-27 in overtime. Sports IllustratedRaiders vs Ravens Official Live Game Thread

The Raiders didn’t fail to disclose the Clelin Ferrell back injury before Monday night’s game against the Ravens. During the contest, however, the Raiders failed to disclose quarterback Marcus Mariota‘s in-game injury.

Mariota entered for one snap, ran the ball 31 yards, and left. Coach Jon Gruden told reporters on Tuesday that Mariota had been injured. The Raiders told no one during the game that Mariota was injured.

“Club personnel are responsible for reporting in-game injury information factually and accurately as soon as possible for the benefit of the network television audience and the other media covering our games,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy explained via email to PFT on Tuesday. “To ensure fans in the stadium have access to the same information, these injury updates must also be posted on the stadium video boards, scoreboards or ribbon boards. The in-game injury updates must be disseminated simultaneously to all parties — the network television broadcaster, the media in the press box and the fans in the stadium. . . . In-game injury announcements to the media must be specific to a body part, accurate, and updated as warranted, including any changes to the player’s status for the remainder of the game if his status changes after the initial report.”

With the spread of legalized sports gambling (and the arrival of the NFL in the place where sports gambling has been legal for decades), this is no small issue. Full transparency becomes critical when it comes to player injuries, and the league can’t afford to look the other way.

In 2018, the Raiders were fined $20,000 for failing to downgrade offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele from questionable to out when he didn’t travel with the team for a  road game against the Chargers. Based on the failure to disclose an injury to Mariota, who clearly was injured, the Raiders may be making another involuntary contribution to a charity of the NFL’s choice.

This organization is literally run by two guys who were color commentators from 2010 to 2018. Seriously, let that sink in.

Never liked the idea of disclosing injuries during the game and I am a gambler. That injury if the player returns is now a target

They probably had no idea. His back might have tightened up after the game or the next morning.

It looked pretty obvious to anyone watching that he had was injured after he got up after that run .

Pretty clear to me he got his bell rung. They didn’t ever really focus on him again and took the camera off him right after the tackle but he was wobbly. Find the footage

It was worth it to not alert a Ravens team that taking out Carr would bring in…who???

You Pod to Win the Game

You might think Humphrey's night couldn't get any worse after that, but you would be wrong. Turns out, Humphrey may have intercepted a pass that could have changed the outcome of the game, but no one — not even Humphrey — noticed. 

The play occurred near the end of the first quarter. Derek Carr tried to hit Darren Waller with a pass near the Raiders' 40-yard line. Humphrey broke up the pass and it looked like the play was over. Take a closer look, however, and it appears Humphrey actually intercepted the ball.

Two angles of the play seem to show the ball falling onto Waller's leg, and not the ground. Humphrey appears to pick up the ball before it hits the ground, meaning the play should have resulted in an interception.

Those angles aren't perfect. The ball is obscured in the first replay, so it's possible it hit the ground and cameras didn't catch it. The second angle appears to show the ball getting caught between Humphrey's stomach and Waller's leg. That replay cuts off early, so we don't actually have clear footage of the moment Humphrey grabbed the ball.

Humphrey apparently doesn't remember either. He responded to the footage by saying he never even felt the ball after breaking up the play.

Bro I never even felt the ball lol I need those…!

— Marlon Humphrey (@marlon_humphrey) September 14, 2021

It's unclear what would have happened if the play were reviewed. Humphrey does pick up the ball, but he immediately ditches it to celebrate. Would a replay rule Humphrey didn't have possession long enough? Would the play result in a Humphrey fumble since he tossed the ball away? Is there clear evidence of another member of the team recovering that football? We'll never get the answer there.

If Humphrey had noticed the picked off the pass, things could have played out differently. The Ravens could have had the ball around the Raiders' 40-yard line. Instead, the team started on their own 20 after a punt and went three and out. 

If Humphrey's interception was recognized, it could have resulted in the Ravens scoring more points, potentially avoiding overtime and winning the game. 

Unfortunately for Humphrey, things got worse later in the contest, as he was responsible for Jones' walk-off touchdown in overtime. Humphrey acknowledged as much on Twitter, saying it was a "weird feeling."

It’s a weird feeling to give up a TD for a game winner….

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.

Republicans' sweeping denunciations of President Joe Biden's plan to force more people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus are raising concerns among public health experts that this heated criticism could help fuel a broader rejection of other vaccine requirements, including those put in place by schools and the military, as the issue of inoculations becomes increasingly political.

The Raiders won their first game of the season in thrilling fashion, but it may have been costly.
