Because the leap over the car by cornerback Taiwan Jones was successful, it prevents this stunt from ranking high on most Raiders things ever, but it’s nice that he’s trying, though. The jump was recorded by Tyvon Branch, the person who bet Jones to try the jump. I could see the Jets doing the same thing, only the car is on fire and Mark Sanchez is locked in the front seat.[via]
