Most of you know that Ray and myself are big fans of the Oakland Raiders, and today they played an amazing game!!

Just a week removed from his first NFL start, Raiders rookie wide receiver Jacoby Ford made the critical plays that helped transform the Oakland Raiders into something they haven't been for a long time a contending team. Ford returned a kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown for the Raiders' first points and he made two huge catches setting up the tying and winning field goals by Sebastian Janikowski as the Raiders beat the Kansas City Chiefs 23-20 in overtime on Sunday.
The victory snapped the Chiefs' seven-game winning streak in Oakland and pulled Oakland to within an half game of the front-running Chiefs in the AFC West. The Raiders won their third straight game for the first time since 2002 and improved to 5-4. It's also their first winning record this late in the season since 2002, when they put together a Super Bowl run. They've had seven consecutive losing seasons since then, and have never had more than five wins in a season in that span. They've already got their fifth win this season and they've got seven more to play.
WHAT A GREAT GAME!
