Football is having a weird opening weekend, and the Raiders first game against the New York Jets was the epitome of that.
Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew was stripped of the ball in the third quarter, accidentally bicycle-kicking the ball backwards in the process.
Luckily, their quarterback Derek Carr was right behind him.
Carr swooped in perfectly to snatch it just in time, taking a dive to not lose any more yards.
Unfortunately the Raiders ended up losing to the Jets 19-14 but hey—we can at least thank them for this morsel of weirdness.
