The Oakland Raiders caught the Detroit Lions napping early in the third quarter Sunday as Derek Carrier ran for 27 yards on a fake punt.

Check out this beautifully designed fake punt reverse, which absolutely roasted Detroit’s special teams unit.

A few plays later, Oakland attempted to capitalize with a field goal, but Daniel Carlson missed from 45 yards out, much to Jon Gruden’s chagrin.
