Entering week four the Raiders were in search of their first interception of the year. Late in the fourth quarter ahead 24-17, the Raiders needed a big play from the defense and Erik Harris delivered one.

With 2:28 left in the game, the Colts took over trailing by a touchdown. After picking up a first down the Colts were looking to keep the drive going on first and ten from their own 25-yard line.

The next play Jacoby Brissett dropped back looking left, safety Erik Harris locked in on the quarterback’s eyes and made a break on the ball immediately. Harris stepped in front of the intended receiver and easily made the interception, returning it untouched 30 yards for the score that would seal the win for the Raiders.

In a game that was close late, that was the turning point play of the game. The Colts would add a touchdown later but it was too little too late. A run by Josh Jacobs picked up the first down for the Raiders and they kneeled out the clock for the win.
