Remember Week 2 of the NFL season when local football fans missed the ending of the Oakland Raiders-Buffalo Bills game for the start of the San Diego Chargers contest?
Well, the NFL stuck to their word and didn’t cut away from Sunday’s exciting ending between the Raiders and Houston Texans.
With 3:43 remaining in the game, “a scrawl came on the screen that read, “We will be going to the Chargers/Broncos game immediately following the conclusion of the Raiders/Texans game,” according to Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com
It’s only fitting that the first game to use the new television rules was the day after Davis’ death, an owner who gave the league hell during his 40-plus years with the Raiders.
