Fans Think Austin Ekeler Was Told By Sieg That Raiders Were Playing For Tie

A wild ending to the NFL regular season also came with a little bit of controversy.

On 3rd-and-4 with 38 seconds left to go in the game, the Raiders appeared content to run out the clock to end the game in a tie that would have sent both the Chargers and Raiders into the playoffs. The Chargers would eventually call a timeout for whatever reason, and the Raiders responded by running the ball for a first down which led to them kicking a game-winning field goal moments later.

After the game, Chargers’ Austin Ekeler could be seen asking a Raiders’ Trent Sieg if the Raiders were going to kneel the ball on the third down play, and Sieg appeared to say, “yeah.”

Raiders are heading into the playoffs to face a really hot Bengals team while the Chargers have been eliminated from playoff contention.
