It wasn’t always pretty, but the Raiders pulled out a crucial 17-10 win over the Bengals to move to 6-4. The rookies once again shined, led by Maxx Crosby’s 4 sack game, Foster Moreau’s fourth receiving touchdown, and Josh Jacobs’ 112 yards on the ground.
But it was Trayvon Mullen who came up with this week’s turning point play of the game when he intercepted a Ryan Finley pass on 2nd and 19 following Crosby’s fourth and final sack.
The interception came while the Raiders were leading 17-10. The Bengals took over on their own 20-yard line needing to go 80 yards to tie the game. As you can see, Crosby and newly signed Dion Jordan applied pressure, which forced Finely to flee the pocket. Looking to make a play, Finley heaved the ball down field. But Mullen was there to end any hopes of a Bengals comeback.
The Raiders offense came on to the field in victory formation and that was all she wrote.
