Even though they beat the Baltimore Ravens Monday night, the Las Vegas Raiders reportedly came away angry about one aspect of the game.
According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, the Raiders have filed a complaint with the NFL alleging dirty hits by the Ravens against slot receiver Hunter Renfrow.
Per Tafur, the Raiders “compiled video of several after-the-play and away-from-the-ball hits.”
The #Raiders, I’m told, have filed a complaint with the league about all the dirty hits on receiver Hunter Renfrow in Monday night’s game. Patrick Queen was called for one, but the Raiders compiled video of several after-the-play and away-from-the ball hits.

Baltimore was penalized five times for a total of 71 yards on Monday, but only one of those penalties was a personal foul. Renfrow also drew a pass interference call in the first half.
Whatever the Ravens did or didn’t do to Renfrow, it didn’t slow the third-year pro down all that much. Renfrow was targeted nine times, catching six passes for 70 yards in Vegas’ 33-27 overtime win.
Most likely, this grievance won’t result in the Ravens being penalized by the league, but it will be interesting to see if it leads to officials keeping more of an eye on how Baltimore plays defense in the coming weeks.
