The Las Vegas Raiders keep their playoffs hopes alive with a 23-20 comeback victory over the Indianapolis Colts on the road.
The Indianapolis Colts, before this game, were 9-0 when MVP candidate running back Jonathan Taylor ran for over 100 yards in a game. Well, thanks to Derek Carr’s 29th career game-winning drive, the Colts are now 9-1 in those games, and Las Vegas has clinched their first winning season since the 2016 campaign.
Carr and the defense both played an up and down game as the Raiders defense were dominant almost the entire first half, then allowed the Colts to march down the field and score a touchdown right before halftime. Indianapolis would go on to take the lead on the possession right after halftime after Trevon Moehrig and Casey Hayward bumped into each other on a ball that should’ve been an interception.
That ball was tipped right into the hands of T.Y. Hilton, giving the Colts their first lead of the game. However, the Raiders then came back with a touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow, who also almost had another touchdown pass on what would’ve been an incredible play but the officials ruled on replay that Kenny Moore’s fingertips had touched him before he had gotten up and run for a touchdown.
Daniel Carlson finished up the game with a 35-yard field goal for the Raiders victory. We already know that Renfrow was and is an absolute stud so let’s check out a few more players who played well in this game and a couple of players who didn’t exactly all that well.
