The final play, after the final play, after the final play, after the final play, saw quarterback Derek Carr hit wide receiver Michael Crabtree with a 2-yard scoring pass. 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.
If you missed the Thursday night matchup between #The Raiders and #Chiefs, you missed arguably the game of the year.
I get that Aaron Rodgers going down last week was a buzz kill, but the Packers' opponent in Week 7 is the New Orleans Saints, who have already given up three passing touchdowns in three of their five games this year. Albert Wilson and Travis Kelce had the other touchdowns for the Chiefs. Most people expected the Chiefs to come out on fire, and they did, leading 30-21 heading into the fourth quarter. Marshawn Lynch carried the ball twice in the game before he exploded in the second quarter with actions that resulted in his ejection after Chiefs defensive back Marcus Peters had a late hit on hit on Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. This caused the referee to eject Lynch from the game. Nine of Cooper's 11 receptions went for either first downs or scores - 82 percent - including a long grab of 45 yards, which ended in a touchdown.
Giorgio Tavecchio added the extra point after the Crabtree touchdown to give Oakland the win.
Facing 3rd-and-10 on the Chiefs' 43-yard line, the Raiders lined up in an empty-set formation with Lynch on the sidelines.More news: Judge temporarily stops gov't from facilitating abortion for illegal immigrant teen

Alex Smith threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns but it wasn't enough for the Chiefs (5-2). 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.
The next play, Carr threw it to Cordarrelle Patterson in the back of the end zone, and caught it out of bounds.
The former first-round pick averaged 19.1 yards a catch, and was credited with hauling in both of Carr's touchdown passes during the first half.
