Did Derek Carr’s potentially game-saving pass hit a SkyCam? NBC says no

The NFL is better when the Raiders are good, and the NFL is great when a good Raiders team is embroiled in a quality controversy involving an NFL game.

Raiders fans are noted conspiracy theorists — hello, Tuck Rule Game — and the latest one is a doozy, because it involves a potentially game-tying pass from Derek Carr to Amari Cooper at the end of Thursday night’s 21-13 Kansas City win.

The pass in question was wild, because Cooper appeared to lose the ball completely despite him being open and the ball hanging in the sky. Many people believe it hit one of NBC’s SkyCams.

Cooper said after the game he lost the ball.

“That’s why it looked like I might have stumbled,” Cooper said, via Awful Announcing. “I was running in the right direction and it kind of moved inside at the last minute and I didn’t have time to get it.”

If you watch the play in question it’s really bizarre because the ball does just suddenly move.

Looking at slow-motion replays it does look like something odd happened.
