Raiders True Grit

Raiders show True Grit in win over Ravens

With 2:44 seconds left in the game, Baltimore’s Justin Tucker kicked a 31 yard field goal to give the Ravens their first lead in the game, going up over the home-team Raiders 33-30. I thought – as many of you probably did – that this was yet another example of the Raiders being the Raiders […]
