There may be plenty of example of teams getting away with cheating. The Raiders heating up a football on Monday night isn’t one of them. “That was not a game ball,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT via email. “It was a practice ball that was put back in a team bag. The K-ball coordinator confirmed there were no unauthorized balls used during the game.” ESPN cameras showed Raiders long snapper Jon Condo warming a ball at the outset of the fourth-quarter drive that quickly resulted in quarterback Derek Carr throwing an interception.
