The Las Vegas Raiders have a fondness for tossing some unusual phrases into their pre-snap routine. One in particular got many people’s attention on Sunday night.

NBC’s Cris Collinsworth was just pointing out how unusual some of the Raiders’ audibles are in the first quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs.
