Raiders beat Chiefs on final play

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was ejected from the game in the first half for making contact with an official during a scrum on the field that involved players from both teams.

The win was vital for the Raiders because it stopped their freefall and put them back in contention in the AFC West Division.

In accordance with league rules, 10 seconds were run off the clock after the overturned ruling.

Lynch came off the bench after quarterback Derek Carr was hit late by Kansas City's Marcus Peters in the second quarter Thursday night. 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.

But because of a defensive holding, the Raiders had yet another untimed down.

The unusual sequence of no time on the clock events continued when Chiefs safety Eric Murray was called for holding on another Carr incomplete pass, extending the game one more play.

Finally, on a sprint out to the left, Carr hit a kneeling Crabtree just inside the front pylon - with no flags.

Giorgio Tavecchio added the extra point after the Crabtree touchdown to give Oakland the win.

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

The teams have combined for 26 first downs and 537 yards in an entertaining game. Less than seven minutes into this game, Cooper had hauled in a pair of catches for 50 yards and a score, including a 38-yards touchdown catch on a flea flicker up the left sideline. Oakland wide receiver Amari Cooper returned to prominence, recording two touchdowns and 210 yards receiving. The degree of difficulty on this one is high.

The Raiders were down 30-24, when Derek Carr launched a pass to Jared Cook on 4th and 11 that initially appeared to be a touchdown.

Marquette King continues to play well, only punting three times, but putting one inside the 20 and averaging 48 yards per punt.

Not to be overlooked, reigning defensive player of the year, defensive end Khalil Mack made a crucial third-down sack of Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, proving once again that he is as clutch of a defensive player as one can find.
