Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew linked up with rookie quarterback Derek Carr during Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Nothing unusual about that, sure.

But when you add in that the link up involved Jones-Drew taking evasive action after being clotheslined by the Jets defense, bicycle kicking the football into the air and behind him, and the ball ending up in the arms of Carr then the interest in ramped up a little.

You can check out the down right crazy play via this link.

That play is too crazy even for the Oakland Raiders surely? And judging by the scrambling tactics from the Raiders offense we are going to go out on a limb here and suggest it wasn't in the play book.

With the Raiders struggling against the Jets on NFL Sunday at this point, down 19-7 with just under two minutes on the clock, and Maurice Jones-Drew managing just 11 rushing yards the hilarious play might not be seen as such by the Oakland coaching staff.

At least Carr was alert enough to grab hold of the ball on his first start in the NFL.
