Carlson, Las Vegas work overtime to topple Cowboys

-

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime after Anthony Brown’s fourth pass-interferen­ce penalty kept the drive alive, and the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Dallas Cowboys 36-33 on Thursday.

Carlson’s fifth field goal came after Brown was called for interferen­ce on Zay Jones on third-and-18. All four of Brown’s interferen­ce penalties came on third-down incompleti­ons.

The Raiders (6-5) ended a three-game losing streak with their first Thanksgivi­ng victory since 1968. It was their fourth appearance on the holiday since then, with the previous two losses coming at the

Cowboys.

Carlson put Las Vegas ahead 33-30 with a careerlong 56-yarder with 1:52 remaining. Greg Zuerlein, who missed an extra point after the first Dallas TD, answered with a 45-yarder with 19 seconds to go.

Tony Pollard had a 100yard kickoff return for Dallas in the third quarter, but was stopped inside the 15 to start overtime. The Cowboys went three-andout starting from their 7, and the Raiders finished off the third victory for the AFC West against the NFC East-leading Cowboys (7-4) in the past four games.

Brown had his back to Jones when Derek Carr threw the pass with Las

Vegas at its 43. The penalty put the Raiders at the Dallas 24, and the winning kick came after Dallas was penalized twice for rushing past the line of scrimmage before the snap.

Both teams had season highs in penalties and yards. Dallas had 14 for 166 and Las Vegas 14 for 110.

Carr threw for 373 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown strike to DeSean Jackson. Marcus Mariota had a short scoring run on a shotgun keeper.

The Dallas offense struggled early without top receivers Amari Cooper (COVID-19 protocols)
