We’re only one week into the NFL season but it’s going to be hard to top the wild ending of the Raiders-Ravens Monday Night Football game.
In overtime, the Raiders believed they had won the game and were being congratulated by Ravens players after it appeared that Bryan Edwards had scored a game-winning touchdown.

Unfortunately, Edwards was short and the Raiders gave the ball away a few possessions later on a tipped interception near the endzone.

The Raiders went from thinking they won the game, to being inside the 1-yard line, to throwing an interception. 😬 pic.twitter.com/Jb6RMWJxdE

A few plays later the Ravens would fumble the ball near the 30-yard line giving the Raiders prime position to kick a field goal.

Not wanting to risk it, Raiders coach Jon Gruden decided that he wanted to kick a field goal on second down but was penalized for delay of game after he attempted to stop the clock with no timeouts left.

Gruden was forced to bring the offense back onto the field and Derek Carr throw a long touchdown pass to Zay Jones, who was uncovered down the field.
