Because we are a society that likes to watch the world burn, the entire NFL community wanted to see a tie between the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers.
And we nearly had it.
After regulation expired at 29-29, the Raiders got the ball first. Daniel Carlson delivered the first field goal. The Raiders go up 32-29.
The Chargers get the ball, Dustin Hopkins kicks a field goal. All tied up at 32 again.
The Raiders get the ball, and use every bit of clock to take it down to the end of overtime. And it was Daniel Carlson for the win.
The Raiders, with an interim head coach in Rich Bisaccia, qualify for the playoffs, and the Chargers go home with heartbreak.
Because of this, the Pittsburgh Steelers also qualify for the playoffs as well. The Steelers will face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.
The Raiders will go to the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday afternoon. And the Chargers go home to Los Angeles.
What an ending to Week 18 of the regular season.
