Wrong, at least on 3rd and goal from the 1 with a minute left. TD there puts LV up either 5 or 7 (if they convert for 2) points with 50 or so seconds left, and no timeouts for Miami, who would ne

Idiotic coaching decision to not score the td in my opinion. Raiders deserve to lose playing conservative. You score that TD regardless of time remaining and force Miami to score another TD to win. What a joke lmao. 

Another TD Plus the 2 point conversion- and that to just send the game to overtime. 
 

oops nevermind they were down 1

Ridiculous. 

Raiders should have scored, then go for 2 if they want to make it a 7 point game.  The Dolphins would have to take it down the whole way to score a TD.  Instead, you give them the chance to kick a FG with a big play.

Was the fix in?

Every fantasy players in the world is cheering on that one after they had Jacobs basically take a knee on that TD. Obviously this is the lower probability outcome, though.

Jacobs was ok sliding on his 2nd down run.  They take a time out with a minute left.  All good.

Error is when Gruden takes the knee on 3rd down.  Stupid not to run and try to get the td there.  Taking the knee gets them down to a fg attempt that doesn't end the game.  It leaves 20 seconds.  If they score a td there, it leaves 50 seconds or so - but LV leads either 28-23 or 30-23.  Either way, Dolphins have to go 60+ yards and score a TD to win or tie.

Intentionally taking the fg is idiotic.  20 seconds is enough for 2 or 3 plays.  Miami gets the ball on the 25, and they don't need to go 75 yards, but only 35-40.  Very doable in 2 or 3 plays... as we saw.  Then a fg beats them, as it did.

Very deserving loss.

This is right on the money.
