NFL Regular Season Week 4 – The Oakland Raiderettes

On paper, the Cleveland Browns vs the Oakland Raiders may have seemed to have been a rather dull affair between two teams struggling to find an identity and some consistency.  And if you thought that, like I did, you would have been wrong.  This game was another high scoring, close game that went into overtime before it was decided and to top it off, there were some officiating irregularities to add to the excitement.

So to keep it brief, here were the major story lines for the game:

  • Baker Mayfield get his first start for the Browns.
  • Backup RB Nick Chubb rushes for 105 yards and two TDs on three carries.
  • Derek Carr comes alive, throwing for 437 yards and 4 TDs for the Raiders.
  • With the Browns leading and less than two minutes left in the game, the refs blow call and overturn first down run by Browns RB Carlos Hyde that might have decided the game.
  • Raiders Gruden gets first win of the season and his second stint as Raiders head coach.

After the controversial call that stopped the Cleveland Browns from running out the clock, the Raiders promptly moved the ball down the field and scored the game tying touchdown on a 7 yard pass from Derek Carr to Jared Cook.  And in overtime, the Raiders kicked a field goal to end the game, final score: Raiders – 45, Browns – 42. 

With the win, the Raiders improve to 1 – 3 on the season and stayed within three games of the AFC West lead.
