Although the Raiders no longer play in the Bay Area, tight end Darren Waller represented the team’s former neighbor for the flight to New England ahead Las Vegas’ Week 3 matchup with the Patriots.

Baron Davis was the glue that held the heralded “We Believe” Warriors together, an underdog team that pulled off one of the NBA’s most memorable postseason upsets in taking down the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the 2007 NBA Playoffs.
