In Thursday Night Football the hosts had more success at the Black Hole, and in the last second, they managed to win against the leading team in the American Football Conference, 31-30.
Unlike in recent years, we've seen some of the season's best games in the opening contest of the week. "Our guys came in with a great mindset and we were determined to leave here with a victory".
Carr finished the game with 417 yards and three touchdowns, as he looked like the MVP candidate past year. The Raiders had struggled to get the ball downfield while being held to 17 or fewer points in four straight games but Carr repeatedly beat the Chiefs with deep passes.
Del Rio said the team isn't trying to throw too much at him this fast and that they are installing the game plan into his head rather than the actual playbook. "This is a special, special win". Smith threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns.
With a win that featured Oakland erasing four separate deficits, including a nine-point disadvantage at the start of the fourth quarter, the Raiders kept alive hopes of a Wild Card bid, as well as an AFC West title. Period. Just have to make a play.

He said police have "no serious doubts" that the suspect was the assailant, and that there was no longer any danger to the public. About three hours after the stabbings, police arrested a man matching that description who had initially tried to evade officers.
The linebacker spot has been one of the weakest spots for the Raiders defense this season and having a player of Bowman's caliber in there will help tremendously.
That set up 1st and Goal from the 10, and Chiefs safety Ron Parker was called for defensive holding. Carr hit Crabtree in the front corner of the end zone from 2 yards out to tie it at 30. Oakland gave up some embarrassing touchdowns to Alex Smith and the Chiefs passing game. The Raiders will have 10 days to get ready for a tough road game against the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park on October 29.
When your starting running back gets ejected for shoving a ref, your rushing attack probably takes a hit.
Lynch looked to get in the middle of the situation and get his good friend and Oakland native Peters out of the way. Peters also was called for a personal foul on the play. But while doing so, Lynch pushed an offical and was ejected from the game. He finished with 18 rushes for 87 yards, and was rendered ineffective in the second half after a fast start.
When all was said and done, Cooper had racked up 210 receiving yards (64 more than his season total prior to Thursday) on 11 catches for the two TDs.
At that point, the Raiders fell victim to one of the worst rules in the National Football League rule book. That was Tavecchio's first missed kick of any kind this season but he then had a 53-yarder blocked and missed a 45-yarder wide left in the second quarter.
