Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby did something Sunday he’s never done in his career before, he tackles a quarterback in the endzone for a safety.

Yes, Sunday’s safety was the first in his career.

After the game, Crosby detailed what he saw as he lined up for that final play.

“I see everything. I was very calm. The play before I came through clean, and they blew the whistle. So, I was like ‘Alright, I got to get this shit.’ ‘Like, I got to get home.’ And I seen [Mike] Gesicki come over to chip, so I knew I had to beat him clean and then it would have given me a chance to win on the edge,” Crosby said. “So, yeah, we work it every single day. It’s just a regular routine – working my technique, getting off the ball and finishing, and that’s what happened. And Bilal [Nichols] had a great rush as well. So, yeah, there’s no better feeling closing the game out. We talked about it last week and the week before. Our defense is improving, and I think we’re seeing that every single week. So, it’s good to see.”

The 26-year-old defensive end went on to say clinching a game with a safety was “an out-of-body experience. It was incredible.”

“It’s huge to get a win. We’re super fired up about it, but we got to enjoy this and then tomorrow we’re right back to it,” Crosby said. “I know myself; I will start watching tonight and get right back to it. Recovery already started and I got in the tubs already. It’s every single day and that’s what is required. I just try to get my guys with me and keep improving. Super exciting to get the win, especially at home again. I know the fans love it, so we just got to keep going.”

With Sunday’s win, the Las Vegas Raiders now sit at 3-3. The team travels to Chicago next Sunday to take on the 1-5 Bears.
