Patriots lateral goes for winning Raiders touchdown by Chandler jones

A disastrous mistake cost the New England Patriots in Las Vegas.

With one second remaining in regulation and the game all knotted up at 24 apiece, Patriots quarterback Mac Jones handed the football off to running back Rhamondre Stevenson on the New England 44-yard line in a play seemingly set up to force overtime.

Stevenson scampered into Raiders territory and lateraled the football to wide receiver Jakobi Meyers. Meyers was unable to find space to run with the football, so instead of going down to conceded overtime, Meyers inexplicably threw the football across the field right into the hands of Raiders pass rusher Chandler Jones. Jones caught the lateral, stiff-armed Patriots quarterback Matt Jones on the way to a game-winning 48-yard fumble recovery and score.
