'Thursday Night Football' Ratings Down As Raiders Score Close Win Over Chiefs

Giorgio Tavecchio won it with the extra point with no time on the clock.

Carr threw what was initially ruled to be a 29-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jared Cook with 16 seconds left.

On their next drive, the Raiders surged back ahead 14-10 with 40 seconds left in the opening quarter on Carr's second touchdown pass of the night to Cooper, this one for 45 yards.

That set up 1st and Goal from the 10, and Chiefs safety Ron Parker was called for defensive holding. They lost consecutive games for the first time since October 11-18, 2015, and had their 12-game winning streak in the AFC West snapped in a thrilling finish.

Crabtree then caught a 1-yard touchdown pass with three seconds left, but he was flagged for offensive pass interference. Carr hit Crabtree in the front corner of the end zone from 2 yards out to tie it at 30. Cook added six catches and 107 yards - two of the game's final three completions for 42 yards. On a third-and-10 play from Kansas City's 29-yard line, Carr threw up a prayer into triple coverage and Cook SOMEHOW CAME DOWN WITH IT and the immediate ruling on the field was touchdown.

Carr led the Raiders on an 85-yard drive in the final 2:25 to give the Raiders a win. Hundley, despite throwing three interceptions, looked serviceable in relief last week. Bowman, whom the Raiders signed Monday, could be asked to step into the Raiders' base defense after just three days in the organization. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr attempted a draw up the middle and after he was stopped a Chiefs player hit him late.

FDA Approves Second CAR T-cell Therapy
According to Gilead, about 7,500 lymphoma patients each year in the United States would be qualified for CAR-T treatment. The FDA cautions that the drug is not indicated to treat patients with primary central nervous system lymphoma.


The bruising Raiders running back didn't have much of an impact on the box score, but that didn't stop Marshawn Lynch from having a significant impact on the game.

"There ain't too many examples of players from Oakland that give it back like Marshawn and Marcus", said a family member of Peters on Thursday night.

"I've never been part of a game that came down so dramatic", linebacker Derrick Johnson said.

Till that point, Lynch had managed only nine yards off two carries - the Oakland native is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry so far this season and is yet to have a 100-yard game this season, tallying more than 50 yards only twice. Cooper had 18 catches for 146 yards the first six games before breaking through with 11 catches for 210 yards and two touchdowns for the second biggest receiving day in Raiders history to Art Powell's 247 in 1963.

The Raiders hope Bowman's leadership will rub off on the rest of the team to help save their season that will probably be done if they lose tonight.
