If Monday night’s game of the Las Vegas Raiders and Baltimore Ravens were played on Madden, several controllers could have been severed and friendships would have been severed.
The game’s wild ending sparked a reaction from many NFL players and fans who were equally stunned to see the Raiders claim a 33-27 overtime victory.
And it was not easy, not by far.

Before the game went into extra time, the fourth quarter saw three ties before the game was sent into the extra box.
First, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson ran for 28 yards on a late play in the fourth quarter that saw Justin Tucker score a field goal to give the team a 27-24 lead with 42 seconds to play. Derek Carr, in the next practice, would throw two darts at Bryan Edwards to get Las Vegas kicker Daniel Carlson for a 55-yard field goal. Carlson landed the kick and sent the game into overtime.
The drama would not end there.
Carr would reconnect with Edwards in the first set of overtime and they thought they had the winning score. The Raiders started celebrating and players from both teams congratulated each other on the field before it was determined that Edwards was stopped at the 1-yard line.

A Carr quarterback failed and he then threw an incomplete pass and a false start penalty was assessed. On the next play, Carr searched for Willie Snead IV, but the ball hit the receiver’s hands, bounced off Ravens defenseman DeShon Elliott’s helmet and into the hands of cornerback Anthony Averett.
The sweet taste of victory immediately soured.
Jackson would lead the Ravens to the next drive but in the fifth game of his series, Carl Nassib would force him to grope which would be recovered by Las Vegas.
Las Vegas was about to go for a placement, but the unit wasn’t ready and was forced to take a late-game penalty with no time-outs to call.
Carr then came back to pass and found Zay Jones for the winning touchdown pass.
Even those watching at home couldn’t believe what happened.
Carr was 34-for-56 with 435 passing yards, two touchdown passes and one interception. Josh Jacobs rushed for 34 rushing yards on 10 carries with two touchdowns. Darren Waller led the Raiders with 10 catches for 105 yards and a touchdown.
