INGLEWOOD, Calif. — Jon Gruden might have erred on the side of illogical Sunday, but his faith in a struggling Raiders defense paid off.
Just not until his guts were turned inside out awaiting the result of a single video review.
We have reached the midpoint of the 2020 season and here sit the Raiders, all 5-3 and rightly happy with themselves after a wild 31-26 win against the Chargers on Sunday at spectacular SoFi Stadium.
It came to this — the officiating crew correctly overturning a Los Angeles touchdown on the game’s final play to deliver Las Vegas its victory — in large part because Gruden put his team’s fate in the hands of its defense.
Really. He did.
