He lived up to his reputation on Thursday night, burning Raiders defensive backs for a jaw-dropping touchdown to give the Chiefs their first lead of the game. On the play from the 10, Carr threw an incomplete pass, but the Chiefs were called for holding, which gave the Raiders another crack at the end zone after the half-the-distance to the goal line penalty was enforced. They trailed 30-21 after three quarters. After plays with three straight penalties, Carr was able to find Michael Crabtree for the game-tying touchdown to save Oakland's fading season.
When Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sprinted off the sideline to join a scuffle that started after Raiders offensive linemen Donald Penn and Kelechi Osemele took offense to Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters hit Derek Carr late, the immediate thought was that Lynch was also upset about the hit.
The Raiders got Cooper involved early and often, capping off their first drive of the game with one of football's funnest plays.

It was Lynch's Seattle house that Peters stayed at during the majority of the young corner's time at the University of Washington, when Lynch was a member of the Seattle Seahawks and Peters was an All-American defensive back. 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. With a full week as the No. 1 quarterback, he could surprise and be a top 10 quarterback this weekend. Cook added six catches and 107 yards - two of the game's final three completions for 42 yards.
Carr answered with a 38-yard touchdown pass to Cooper on a flea-flicker as the Raiders took a 7-3 lead with 8:11 left in the first.
