Peters also was called for a personal foul on the play. But, there was another holding call on the Chiefs giving them an untimed down.

If you missed the Thursday night matchup between #The Raiders and #Chiefs, you missed arguably the game of the year. Smith threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns. Oakland still doesn't have an interception and surrendered some humiliating touchdowns to Smith and the Chiefs.

Wins have been so hard to come by for the Oakland Raiders that it took three tries at the final play for them finally to pull this one out and possibly save their season.

For the man who trademarked the phrase "I'm just here so I won't get fined", Marshawn Lynch is now likely facing a hefty fine and a potential suspension after he was ejected from the Raiders vs. Chiefs game Thursday night for shoving a referee during a brawl between the two teams. 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. Oakland wide receiver Amari Cooper returned to prominence, recording two touchdowns and 210 yards receiving.

The Raiders were one play away from being 2-5 and riding an atrocious five-game losing streak.




Derek Carr threw for 417 yards and Amari Cooper went absolutely insane for 210 yards and two touchdowns.

Giorgio Tavecchio booted the extra point in front of a crowd of 55,100 at the Oakland Coliseum stadium.

With their season on the line following the recent slump, Carr led an 85-yard touchdown drive in the final 2:25 to give the Raiders (3-4) the thrilling comeback in a game they trailed by nine points heading into the fourth quarter. Despite that, they stopped Hunt for no gain on first down, stopped him after a six-yard pickup on second down, and then the only sack of the game came at just the right time to force the Chiefs to punt. After a short run, Tyreek Hill beat David Amerson for a 64-yard touchdown pass that gave the Chiefs their first 99-yard drive since doing it December 3, 2006, against Cleveland.

Oakland also gave up 30 points through the first three quarters. However, Jack Del Rio was able to keep his team focused, and Derek Carr was allowed to work his way back and win the game with a fantastic drive at the end.
