Raiders Beat Texans With Only 10 Men on Field for Final Play
Maybe the spirit of Al Davis was truly guiding the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
The Raiders beat the Texans in Houston 25-20 thanks to a Michael Huff interception on the final play of the game. Houston was at the five yard line and had an excellent chance to score, but Huff stepped in front of receiver Jacoby Jones to pick off Matt Schaub’s throw.
Beating the Texans as a road underdog was already a major accomplishment for the 3-2 Raiders. Winning the game on the final play with only 10 men on the field is even more impressive. Maybe this was Al Davis paying his team back for their Sunday tribute.
