The Las Vegas Raiders seemed poised to secure a win over the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night, only for the Raiders to lose in heartbreaking fashion. Following the narrow defeat to Miami, Jon Gruden discussed the late-game decision he made that led to the Dolphins winning the game.

“I don’t regret it,” Gruden said, via ProFootballTalk. “I don’t regret it one bit, via . I just regret the results. . . . 19 seconds left, on your own 25-yard line, with no timeouts, I’ve called plays a long time, the probability of getting that done is remote. . . . I’m not going to get into all the scenarios. We played it exactly like we wanted to play it.”

The Raiders had possession of the ball at the one-yard line with under a minute remaining in the game. While the Dolphins were prepared to let Las Vegas score a touchdown, Gruden informed Derek Carr to take a knee to run the clock down.

As a result, the Raiders would kick a field goal to take a 25-23 lead, giving the ball back to the Dolphins with 19 seconds left. With those 19 seconds, Ryan Fitzpatrick created some magic and led Miami to a field goal that kept their playoff hopes alive.

On the other hand, Gruden’s squad was eliminated from playoff contention, making it three consecutive years without a playoff berth under Gruden. In his three seasons, Gruden has failed to deliver a winning record despite having 6-4 records at one point in the past two seasons.

If Las Vegas had chosen to attempt to score a touchdown, it would have prevented Miami from having a chance to kick a game-winning field goal. Nevertheless, Gruden’s choice to kneel at the one-yard line cost the Raiders a chance to remain alive in the playoff race.
