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. Period. Just have to make a play. A run-off would leave eight seconds remaining on the clock. And Cordarrelle Patterson's inability to wrangle a pass before stepping out of the back of the endzone was bailed out by Eric Murray's defensive holding on a first un-timed down.
With all the offense, however, the game swung on one of the few big defensive plays.
Week 7 got off to a strong start - unless you were a defense - as the Oakland Raiders beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-30, on the last play of the game on "Thursday Night Football".
On the next play, Crabtree would be called for offensive pass interference.
The next play, Carr threw it to Cordarrelle Patterson in the back of the end zone, and caught it out of bounds.
Once again, it appeared that a ideal throw from quarterback Derek Carr had netted Oakland a lead, with Crabtree snaring a fade over a stumbling Marcus Peters. Perhaps Lynch wanted to join his teammates, but he's also related to Marcus Peters so perhaps he was wanting to mediate.
General Electric shares tank as third quarter shows a big earnings miss
Investors are a little more bullish on shares of Portland General Electric Co if you take a look at the fall in short interest. BidaskClub downgraded General Electric from a "sell" rating to a "strong sell" rating in a report on Wednesday, June 28th.
Peters was called for a personal foul for the late hit. Lynch, a close friend of Peters, ended up shoving line judge Julian Mapp and getting ejected. This caused the referee to eject Lynch from the game.
"I was disappointed he ran out because I knew we had a 15-yard penalty and we'd be in good shape", Del Rio said.
DEEP CONNECTION: Carr had not connected on a single deep ball to Amari Cooper all season before the two teamed twice for long TDs in the opening quarter. Later in the quarter Carr and Cooper connected on a 45-yard score, making Cooper the first Raiders receiver with two TD catches in the first quarter since Mervyn Fernandez in 1989.
Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill caught six passes for 125 yards and a 64-yard touchdown.
Regardless of his struggles, Cooper still leads the team receptions (29), targets (58) and receiving yards (356), while being tied for second in receptions over 20 yards with five. Kicker Giorgio Tavecchio, who missed a point-after-attempt last week, hit the PAT with no time left on the clock to give the Raiders the win.
