Matt Schaub's first Raiders pass is a fake field goal interception
Matt Schaub attempted the first pass of his Raiders career on Sunday and it was an interception on a fake field goal. Hail Raiders.
Sebastian Janikowski initially came out to attempt a field goal but motioned out to the sideline, leaving Schaub -- his holder -- under center. Hijinx ensued.
In theory this is a good play. Schaub's a decent(ly expensive) quarterback so if the Browns are fooled, you can pick up some yardage here.
Unfortunately the snap was bad and Schaub panicked, giving the Browns a free pick on fourth down.
You'll remember Schaub was a high-priced (!) addition this offseason who was beat out for the starting job by rookie Derek Carr. So this was his first pass attempt of the year for Oakland.
A perfectly delightful Raiders moment.
