Jakobi Meyers will always be part of one of the most unbelievable endings of a game in NFL history. He was only trying to make a play and now he wishes he never tried it.
With Sunday’s game tied at 24, New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson ran into Las Vegas Raiders’ territory and lateraled the ball to Meyers instead of just going down.
Meyers turned around and started going backward until he unleashed a long lateral in the direction of quarterback Mac Jones. Unfortunately, Chandler Jones of the Raiders snagged it, shoved Jones to the ground, and then ran it back for the touchdown.
“I was trying to do too much,” Meyers told reporters after the game. “… Trying to be a hero, I guess.”
