Raiders Fantastic Win over Chiefs in Thursday Night Football

After this play, Giorgio Tavecchio did the rest and converted an extra point which brought a much-needed victory to California. Cook was ruled down with 18 seconds left, but since the refs had to stop the clock for a review, there was a 10-second runoff since the Raiders didn't have any timeouts.

With a win that featured Oakland erasing four separate deficits, including a nine-point disadvantage at the start of the fourth quarter, the Raiders kept alive hopes of a Wild Card bid, as well as an AFC West title. On the play from the 10, Carr threw an incomplete pass, but the Chiefs were called for holding, which gave the Raiders another crack at the end zone after the half-the-distance to the goal line penalty was enforced.

Peters and Lynch are Oakland, evidenced by the fact that after the game, both took the Bart train out of the Coliseum, in their hometown, living with the same mantra they've shared throughout their lives.

Long before going in the direction of the sure-handed Crabtree for the victor and the leaping 6-foot-5 tight end to set it up, Carr and offensive coordinator Todd Downing made a concerted effort to get Cooper involved early, going at the two-time Pro Bowler on Oakland's first offensive play of the game - albeit a pick up of just 12 yards.

Then, Carr went to Michael Crabtree with three seconds remaining ... but that was called back with officials flagging the veteran wideout for offensive pass interference.

On 25-of-36 passing, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith accounted for 342 of the game's 759 passing yards - Carr: 417 on 29-of-52. He lived up to his reputation on Thursday night, burning Raiders defensive backs for a jaw-dropping touchdown to give the Chiefs their first lead of the game. Carr hit Crabtree in the front corner of the end zone from 2 yards out to tie it at 30.

LONG DRIVE: After Marquette King pinned the Chiefs at their own 1 with a ideal punt early in the second quarter, Kansas City needed little time to turn the momentum.

Morrow or Xavier Woodson-Luster could fill in for James, flanking Bowman along with Bruce Irvin as the Raiders face division-leading Kansas City trying to snap a four-game losing streak. Hundley, despite throwing three interceptions, looked serviceable in relief last week.

This time the Raiders got to run an untimed play from the five-yard line with a chance to win.

Lynch wound up being ejected for grabbing an official during the scuffle, but his intent may not have been to get at Peters. While Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington did their best to man the depleted running back corps, Lynch made a decision to watch the rest of the game from the bleachers because Oakland. Peters also was called for a personal foul on the play.

"I saw Marshawn come out there; that's his cousin", Penn said, via "Marshawn's smart. He's going to learn from that moving forward". "We have to. We have a lot of veteran leadership on this team".
