Marcus Peters and the Los Angeles Rams absolutely took it to his hometown Oakland Raiders in the cornerback’s debut with the team Monday night.
A game for the better part of three-plus quarters, Peters broke it open big time with a pick-six of Raiders quarterback Derek Carr late in the fourth quarter.
As Peters was making his way to the end zone, he pulled off the most-patented of all Marshawn Lynch moves.
Marcus Peters called GAME the Marshawn way 😅

Some will see that as a knock on Mr. Lynch. It isn’t. The two grew up in Oakland and are actual cousins. They remain close to this day.
But it’s this one tweet from Peters that called the haters out in a big way a day after his Rams defeated Oakland, 33-13.
That’s all sorts of well placed right there. Heck, Peters is even wearing a Lynch-themed Beastmode hoodie in the GIF.
Much like other young corners, Peters talks a big game. But he backs it up with dynamite play after dynamite play on the field. His game-clinching pick of Carr in his Rams debut was the latest example of that.
