Todd Downing addresses 3 incomplete passes from 2-yard line – The Mercury News


ALAMEDA — One of the more questionable sequences for the Raiders Sunday in Nashville came on their second drive. After Marshawn Lynch gained the necessary one yard on 4th-and-1 from the 3-yard line, Derek Carr threw three straight passes intended for Amari Cooper. Each fell incomplete, and Oakland settled for a 20-yard field goal to take a 10-7 lead.

It’s not the first time common assumption would be to give Lynch the ball on the doorstep (just ask Seahawks fans), but this decision to throw obviously didn’t have the same repercussions as Pete Carroll’s in the Super Bowl.
