Carr ral­lies Raiders late in wild game

Baltimore Sun - - NFL -

Derek Carr came back from an in­jured pinkie to lead an­other fourth-quar­ter come­back and the Raiders won their fifth straight game, beat­ing the Pan­thers 35-32 on Sun­day in Oak­land, Calif.

Carr threw for 315 yards and two touch­downs de­spite miss­ing a series af­ter the in­jury, lead­ing the Raiders (9-2) back from an eight­point deficit to clinch their first win­ning sea­son since 2002.

Af­ter lead­ing a game-ty­ing drive ear­lier in the fourth quar­ter, Carr hit Michael Crab­tree on a 49-yard pass on third-and-9 from the 14 to help set up Se­bas­tian Janikowski’s 23-yard field goal with 1:45 left that gave them the lead.

Cam New­ton led the Pan­thers (4-7) into Raiders ter­ri­tory on the fi­nal drive, but Greg Olsen dropped a pass on third down that would have put the Pan­thers in field goal range. Khalil Mack stripped New­ton on a fourth-down sack to seal the win. Buc­ca­neers 14, Seahawks 5: Jameis Win­ston threw a pair of TDs to Mike Evans and the Buc­ca­neers’ re­ju­ve­nated de­fense shut down Rus­sell Wil­son and the Seahawks. Al­ter­raun Verner, whose fa­ther died Fri­day, had one of two in­ter­cep­tions off Wil­son, and the Bucs sacked the quar­ter­back six times.
