Huge Day For Carr Leads Raiders to 37-33 Win Over Ravens

Baltimore Ravens v Oakland Raiders

A week after a forgettable loss that looked like the Raiders fans have become sadly accustomed to seeing, the Raiders had the bounce back game of a lifetime Sunday, topping the Baltimore Ravens 37-33 at home.

The Raiders played the aggressor all day, and QB Derek Carr overcame a late interception in a tie game that appeared at the moment to be yet another letdown for the silver and black.

Carr bounced back from that critical mistake to throw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Seth Roberts with 26 seconds left to cap the best day of his career.

The second-year QB threw for a career-high 351 yards and three touchdowns a week after being knocked out of a season-opening loss with an injured throwing hand.

”I’m thankful our defense held up,” Carr said. ”After that I told the guys in the huddle, ‘Believe it. We’ve done this a thousand times.’ They did a great job of making plays.”

On that fateful final drive, the QB went 7 for 9 for 65 yards on the winning drive. He was helped by a personal foul on Timmy Jernigan and a hold on Will Hill III that negated an interception on the play before the touchdown.

Oakland all day did what they want on offense, a far cry from a week ago when they were held in check all day by the Bengals in a crushing opening day loss.

The Raiders gained 448 yards on the day, and dominated the Ravens defense playing without Terrell Suggs who is out for the season.

Carr threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree late in the third quarter, to take the lead.

Ravens QB Joe Flacco responded by leading a pair of long drives for a field goal by Justin Tucker and a 7-yard run by Lorenzo Taliaferro that completed a 93-yard drive and tied the game with 7:03 to play.

Rookie Amari Cooper had seven catches for 109 yards and Crabtree had nine for 111 as Carr had the big-play receivers on the outside that gave himself a chance to have a big day, and even their record at 1-1.

Sunday the Raiders travel to play Cleveland.
