The Raiders Create A New Definition Of "Excessive Celebration"

The Raiders finally won a game Thursday night, but they wouldn't be the Raiders if it didn't come with a boneheaded, self-inflicted wound. Facing 3rd and 6 from the Oakland 45 with less than a minute left, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was sacked by Raiders linebacker Sio Moore. It was a pretty good play! But then Moore decided to celebrate the sack with Khalil Mack without realizing, you know, that the Chiefs were out of timeouts and were going to try and run a play as quickly as possible. Justin Tuck had to make the heads-up play to call a timeout to avoid the penalty.
