Patriots: Verified NFL account makes bizarre Tuck Rule reference during Raiders-Pats

Fans in New England are well aware of the history the Patriots share with the Las Vegas Raiders, who, of course, moved on from Oakland prior to the start of the 2020 season. Their rivalry started in 1990 and the two teams have squared off a whopping 33 times since then.

The Patriots hold a slim advantage in both the regular season series (15-14-1) as well as the playoffs (2-1). The most bizarre of their meetings came in the 2001 AFC Divisional Round, when head coach Bill Belichick’s side escaped with a 16-13 victory after one of the most controversial rulings in NFL history.
