Former Oakland Raiders Running Back Clarence Davis

Saturday afternoon, the Oakland Raiders took to the gridiron to faceoff against the Indianapolis Colts in a Christmas Eve clash. The Silver and Black walked away with their 12th "W" of the season after defeating Indy 33-25. Prior to kickoff, former Raiders running back Clarence Davis was in attendance to light the Al Davis memorial torch for the team's final regular season home game of the 2016 campaign.

From 1971 to 1978, Davis started in 43 games for the Silver and Black, while playing in a grand total of 89. He made several memorable plays for the Raiders during his tenure. He rushed for 137 yards in Super Bowl XI, caught the go-ahead touchdown pass in the "Sea of Hands" game against the Miami Dolphins in the 1974 AFC Divisional playoffs, and is the 9th leading rusher in team history with 3,640 yards.

Davis expressed his gratitude for the honor of lighting the torch in memory of Al Davis and was happy to be present for the game.
