Capers went on to say that the Raiders had 7 defenders lined across the goalline.

Capers agreed with you on his radio show. He said that on the tape, the spot was clearly wrong and it was too bad they didn't challenge it. He said he is reluctant to use a challenge (potential to lose time out and right to challenge future, potentially more important plays) unless the 'guys upstairs' saw the problem on a replay. He said they didn't say anything about it (perhaps they didn't replay it in time, I don't recall)
