Raiders’ ‘James Harden’ audible gets all the jokes, memes
The Las Vegas Raiders went viral on Sunday night for their interesting audible names, and one about James Harden led to plenty of jokes.
During a Raiders possession in the second quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs, quarterback Derek Carr was heard calling a “James Harden” audible. They ended up with a nice run on the play.

The Harden audible led to lots of jokes. One figured the audible meant it’s not a pass, which is modeled after Harden’s isolation game.

Here were some of the other jokes:
Derek Carr actually called the Chiefs defense “James Harden” cuz they can’t get a stop.

“James Harden” call at the line is to tell Raiders players the plan is too just settle for three points.

That’s where you give the ball to the tailback who immediately claims he was fouled. https://t.co/t0ojIF3cZY

That play certainly didn’t dribble long enough to have a “James Harden” audible.

Amazingly, that wasn’t the only audible call the Raiders had that went viral. They left Al Michaels confused with another one.
