The Las Vegas Raiders-Seattle Seahawks late afternoon Week 12 will go down as one of the best regular season games of the year. Unfortunately, a large number of fans in the country missed out on the thrilling ending.
This game required overtime, and all other late afternoon games had been completed. There was just one major issue for those watching the game through RedZone, as explained by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:
“When only one game is still being played on RedZone, the RedZone broadcast ends, in deference to Fox or CBS.”
On RedZone, Scott Hanson told the audience that they could catch the remainder of the game on CBS. But when a plethora of viewers switched over to the network hoping to see the end of the game, they were instead given a broadcast of 60 Minutes.
As you could guess, plenty of football fans were frustrated about missing the end of the thrilling back-and-forth affair at Lumen Field.
It wouldn’t be as bad if the finish wasn’t all that exciting. But the Raiders and Seahawks delivered a classic by combining for 74 points. The game ended with a Josh Jacobs 86-yard touchdown run in overtime to seal the game.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr completed 25 of 36 pass attempts for 295 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Seattle quarterback Geno Smith had 27 completions on 37 attempts for 328 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
But the MVP of the game was undoubtedly Vegas’ star running back. Jacobs finished with 303 total yards (229 rushing, 74 receiving) and two total touchdowns. Wide receiver Davante Adams also had a big game with seven catches for 74 yards.
With the victory, the Raiders improved to 4-7 on the year to keep their extremely slim playoff hopes alive. Seattle’s loss, combined with San Francisco 49ers and Washington Commanders victories, has Pete Carroll’s group outside of the playoff picture
