Just when the Las Vegas Raiders were beginning to find their rhythm in the second half, maintaining offensive momentum with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, Rashad Fenton was credit for forcing a turnover. It was a great play for the Chiefs, to be sure, but it also looked as if maybe DeSean Jackson played for the Chiefs instead.
Jackson just signed with the Raiders earlier this week after being released by the Los Angeles Rams. It was supposed to be a big addition for the Raiders in the wake of losing top deep threat Henry Ruggs III (he was released after being charged with a DUI that resulted in a tragic death of a young woman). So far in this game, however, Jackson is still growing into a new role with Las Vegas.
On the play in question, Derek Carr was leading another effective drive for the Raiders into Chiefs territory when he found Jackson on a nice throw down the middle of the field. The throw just slipped by Tyrann Mathieu for a completion but then he got turned around and fumbled after Fenton punched out the ball.
You can watch the odd play below:
The Chiefs now lead the Raiders by 10 points and a have a real chance to put the Raiders on the ropes on the ensuing drive if they can add another touchdown to the mix.
