Nothing can change a tight game in the final moments like a huge defensive play.
You need to have clutch performers on your defense to have a chance to win.
The Las Vegas Raiders have one of those players. According to Pro Football Focus, Raiders’ pass-rusher Maxx Crosby leads the NFL since 2021 with 62 pressures in the fourth quarter and in overtime of games since 2021.
