Did Al Davis Help His Raiders Win From The Other Side? See The Video!

Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, it is quite interesting what happened just days after Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis passed away. The Game was charged with all kinds of emotion to begin with and the team really wanted to win it for their owner and mentor. Did they get help?

It was one of the most inspirational moments of the 2011 NFL season — the Oakland Raiders prevented the Houston Texans from pulling ahead as the clock ran out in their 25-20 victory last Sunday when Raiders safety Michael Huff picked off Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the end zone.

It was a great win for the team after losing Al Davis just the day before, and we’ve already showed you head coach Hue Jackson’s emotional speech in the locker room after the game.


It turns out that there’s another point of interest about how that game ended — check out the screenshot up top and tell me how many Raiders defenders you see pre-snap?


Yep — we got the same count. The Raiders were one defender short on the play that wrapped up the game for them. As Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle pointed out, the players on the field were Desmond Bryant(notes), John Henderson, Tommy Kelly(notes), Kamerion Wimbley(notes), Rolando McClain(notes), Mike Mitchell(notes), DeMarcus Van Dyke(notes), Michael Huff, Tyvon Branch(notes), and Stanford Routt(notes).
