There was a doubleheader on Monday night football last night due to some rescheduling due to Covid. The Cleveland Browns had a skeleton crew available for what was a must win game against the Raiders.
Cleveland took 1 14-13 lead with 3:45 left on a Nick Mullens TD pass to Harrison Bryant. The Browns defense then intercepted Derek Carr on the ensuing possession that looked to seal it, but a quick 3 and out gave the Raiders one more chance. Carr moved the Raiders 41 yards on 8 plays to set up a game winning 48 yard field goal for Daniel Carlson and the Raiders defeated the Browns 16-14.
Both teams find themselves 7-7 and in a logjam a game back of a wild card spot. Minnesota kept its playoff hopes alive with a 17-9 win in Chicago. The Vikings evened their record at 7-7.
There are two games tonight due to covid schedule shuffling. Seattle’s at the Rams and the Eagles host Washington.
