What had been an offseason semi-staple -- #ThrowbackThursday pictures from Raiders games I covered when they called Los Angeles home – has taken residence on another day.
Let’s call it #FlashbackFriday. At least for today. Following, then, are shots I took while stringing for my local newspaper, the Barstow (Calif.) Desert Dispatch.
In this black and white pic taken during the Raiders' 16-13 overtime victory over the eventual AFC champion Denver Broncos on Dec. 3, 1989, Howie Long tries to apply pressure on John Elway, who would be sacked three times (by Long, Scott Davis and Thomas Benson) and throw a pair of interceptions (both picks coming courtesy of Lionel Washington).
