Down 14-13 with time running out in the game, quarterback Derek Carr led the Las Vegas Raiders down the field for a game-winning field goal Monday night to defeat the Cleveland Browns 16-14.

It was later revealed that he made a promise to his teammates before that final drive.

Late in the game, Carr threw a deep ball into coverage that resulted in an interception. All the Browns needed to do was just make one or two first downs to ice the game. Realizing the situation, Carr talked to his teammates.

“After that interception, I told the guys, ‘Please, I promise we’ll win it, just get the ball back,’” Carr said in a post game interview.

The Raiders’ defense responded and forced a three-and-out, which gave the Raiders the ball back on their own 39-yard line with two-minutes remaining.

Carr then delivered on his promise, as he marched Las Vegas down the field to Cleveland’s 30-yard line, where Daniel Carlson kicked a 48-yard field goal as time expired to give the Raiders the win.

With that win, Las Vegas is now now 7-7 and remains in the AFC playoff hunt.
