With little hope left against the New York Jets on Sunday, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr lined up to take one last shot to the endzone in a 28-24 game with 12 seconds to go.

Carr evaded the pressure brought by defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and threw up a prayer to rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs.

And what came next will make the highlight reel for the young receiver.

Ruggs showcased his blazing speed by beating the defender down the sideline with a play that will keep the Raiders in the playoff hunt for another week.

On the day Ruggs finished with three catches for 84 yards and the touchdown.
