Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden made NFL fans scratch his head Thursday night when cameras caught him wearing an old Oakland Raiders hat while leading his team against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Gruden wore his old hat — a black hat with white Oakland Raiders. The veteran head coach seemed to have been told about the hat and changed it back to a Las Vegas Raiders helmet at some point in the first half.

He addressed the hat situation after losing the team’s overtime to the Chargers.
“I apologize for not having the right hat. Someone did a pretty good trick on me,” Gruden said.
The Raiders and Chargers fought him in overtime. Las Vegas had a first long journey that ended with a goal on the field, and then the team only needed a defensive stop to win the game.

Chargers defender Justin Herbert had other plans as he threw a long pass to set up the game’s winning streak. Herbert will eventually run the ball into the final zone for touchdown and victory.
Gruden said he was proud of the way his team played.
“I would like to say that I am very proud of our team. We lost a lot of men tonight and we lost a lot of men. [Marcus] Mariota came in and did a great job. It’s unfortunate that I couldn’t find a way to win that game in the end, it’s up to me, “he said.
