Raiders Bypass Marshawn Lynch at the 1, Suffer Same Fate as Seahawks

In case you forgot, the Seattle Seahawks did not hand the ball off to Marshawn Lynch in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots. Instead, Seahawks quarterback tried to pass to Ricardo Lockette, but New England Patriots defensive back Malcolm Butler intercepted it, and sealed another New England title.

Since then, Lynch's teams have not learned. 

On Sunday, the Oakland Raiders found themselves in that exact situation. The Raiders had to cut the Los Angeles Chargers' lead to 11 points, with first-and-goal at the 1-yard line. Instead of handing the ball off to Lynch, Derek Carr tried to pass to tight end Derek Carrier, and Melvin Ingram hauled in an interception. 

The Chargers then marched down the field to pad the lead to 23, and won 26-10. The Raiders fell to 1-4, and Carr may find himself inundated with mentions from @OldTakesExposed.
