Earlier this season, linebacker Ernest Jones tipped a pass that safety Nick Scott intercepted in the end zone.

On Thursday, the Raiders were at the Rams’ 10-yard line when Jones tipped a ball with his right hand, tipped it again with his left hand and then grabbed it for an interception in the end zone.

The play ended the Raiders’ chances of increasing a 13-3 lead.

Jones and the defense limited the Raiders to one second-half field goal, enabling Mayfield to engineer the comeback victory.

Safety Taylor Rapp also intercepted a pass to clinch the victory.

After forcing only one turnover in their previous eight games, the Rams have forced four turnovers in the last two.
