The Oakland Raiders managed to deliver not only the game of the year for fans of the NFL; but saved their season with a last minute win.
Derek Carr went 29 of 52 for 417 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. The Raiders lost Marshawn Lynch to an ejection and overcame a 30-21 fourth quarter deficit. Amari Cooper went over 200 yards receiving.
There were about five plays at the end of this game that were dubbed the final play of the game. Flags continued the game with :00 left. The final play to Crabtree was pure magic, and you had the feeling; at least I did, that the Raiders were not going to be denied.
The Chiefs move to 5-2, and the Raiders move to 3-4 and snap a four-game losing streak. Their season and hopes in the AFC are kept alive after beating what was perceived as a heavyweight and with Denver suddenly looking in peril.
This was absolutely the game of the season and probably the game of the last couple years, possibly. I am immensely impressed by Derek Carr’s game.
Carr went 6-11 for 96 yards and the game winner on the final drive. For everything and more on this game, it’s here on NFL.com.
