The Sea of Hands, Holy Roller, Ghost to the Post ...
Many of the great plays in Raiders’ history have great names to remember them by.
With that in mind, we need to figure a name for what we saw Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the New York Jets.
Here’s a refresher to inspire your creative juices:
Derek Carr hit rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III with five seconds to go to give the Raiders a miracle 31-28 win over the winless Jets to keep Las Vegas in the AFC playoff picture.
The Jets — for some inexplicable reason — brought an all-out blitz, a decision that got New York defensive coordinator Gregg Williams fired on Monday morning.
Here’s a few name ideas (though I’m not sure I love any of them). So, please give us your ideas in the comment section:
Ruggs’ redemption: He caused an interception, and lost a fumble that allowed the Jets to take the lead in the fourth quarter before making the biggest play of his short NFL career.
MetLife Miracle: I’ve seen this one out there. It’s OK, but we can do better.
Cover zero heroes: It’s not bad ...
Thankful: Carr said he was “thankful” when he saw the Jets’ coverage. It’s simple, but it works.
Big Apple Bomb: This one is kind of snappy.
Hail Henry: Move over, Mary.
OK, now it’s your turn ...
