Raiders Team Grades: Raiders Beat Chiefs In Huge Come-From-Behind Win


Raiders Team Grades: Raiders Beat Chiefs In Huge Come-From-Behind Win

The Raiders players, especially the offensive line, took exception to what they deemed was an unnecessary or late hit on their quarterback and a fight ensued. The Chiefs were then called for defensive holding on two straight plays, setting up untimed downs both times. Michael Crabtree did his thing by coming up with what was a clutch game-winning catch with 0:00 left on the clock, in what was a nail biter of a finish in Oakland.

Carr finished 29 for 52 for 417 yards and three touchdowns, with Amari Cooper catching 11 passes for 210 yards and two of the scores. On the other hand, the Chiefs were in first place in the AFC West and looked to rebound from their first loss of the season last week.

Cooper made quick work to reintroduce himself as a dominant force in the National Football League, turning in his first 100-yard outing and multi-touchdown game of the year.

Facing 3rd-and-10 on the Chiefs' 43-yard line, the Raiders lined up in an empty-set formation with Lynch on the sidelines. Oakland gave up some embarrassing touchdowns to Alex Smith and the Chiefs passing game.

With all the offense, however, the game swung on one of the few big defensive plays. The call on the field "stood" after a review, and Giorgio Tavecchio, who had missed a 45-yard field goal attempt and had a 53-yarder blocked, snuck the extra point just inside the right upright to seal the win.

The 49ers take on the Dallas Cowboys, who have allowed opposing quarterbacks to score at least 20 fantasy points in a game during the past three weeks and at least two passing touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in four straight weeks.

Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill caught six passes for 125 yards and a 64-yard touchdown. The Chiefs should've won the game, but penalties cost them and the Raiders capitalized, completing the comeback in insane fashion.

Oakland also gave up 30 points through the first three quarters.

That streak is over and the Raiders are winners for the first time since Week 2, having used as improbable a final scoring drive as it was freaky, the result a 31-30 victory against the Chiefs at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Carr hit Crabtree in the front corner of the end zone to tie it at 30.
