Raiders score on final play to beat Chiefs 31-30

Inactives Raiders Without Two Inside Linebackers Bowman Suiting Up

In a game where QB play was the highlight, last-second penalties were crucial, as the Raiders got two extra chances to score the touchdown with no time on the clock. Derek Carr threw the winning touchdown to Michael Crabtree, beating the Chiefs 31-30.

LONG DRIVE: After Marquette King pinned the Chiefs at their own 1 with a flawless punt early in the second quarter, Kansas City needed little time to turn the momentum. From a 41-39 thriller between the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers (as weird to write as it is to read) to the Philadelphia Eagles nail-biting win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 6, Thursday night has been a delight for National Football League fans so far.

This game was an intense battle, and it boiled over in one scenario.

Lee started the Raiders' first five games at middle linebacker.

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.

And in the process, righted a ship taking on enough water that any playoff hopes were almost immersed in four straight defeats.

Alex Smith threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns as the Chiefs lost their second straight game after a 5-0 start. Furthermore, after 12 triumphs in a row, it was the first failure against the teams from the same division. Lynch ran twice for nine yards, The longest run of the day was Carr's only scamper, for 15 yards.

His first target in this match was Amari Cooper who was fantastic, having 11 receiving for 210 yards and two touchdowns.

Carr finished the game with 417 yards and three touchdowns, as he looked like the MVP candidate a year ago. He bombed two touchdowns passes of over 60 yards to Tyreek Hill and Albert Wilson, exposing David Amerson and Keith McGill. In 36 attempts, he completed 25 passes, which is a solid result productivity.

Aside from one 34-yard run by Kareem Hunt, the Raiders held the Chiefs star rookie to 53 yards on 17 carries. Whether it was issues with drops or Oakland not getting him involved enough, the former University of Alabama receiver did not look like himself prior to last night's game.

We had seen one pretty unpleasant scene during the second quarter when Kansas City's Marcus Peters made one harsh tackle on Carr, and the players of the hosts were pretty angry, creating a brawl for a minute. One of the best running backs in the previous decade entered the field from the sidelines, joining the whole incident. But while doing so, Lynch pushed an offical and was ejected from the game. The rumors are saying that he left the stadium and went home furious already at the halftime. Yet another defensive holding call, this time on Murray, went the Raiders' way and we got one more untimed down.
