I'm going to venture that most of you were surprised to see the Oakland Raiders beat the Philadelphia Eagles over the weekend. However, you will probably be even more surprised that Raiders got a little help from a pigeon.
During the 4th quarter, the Raiders were kicking off after a Sebastian Janikowski field goal and a pigeon had wandered onto the field.
The even more surprising thing is that he helped the Raiders on that kickoff coverage by flying down the field with the kick-off team. Fox broadcasters Sam Rosen and Tim Ryan were in stitches in the booth after seeing the replay.
The pigeon was not available for comment after the game but I have feeling Al Davis was signing him to a three-year deal with a birdseed option for the fourth.
