In a game where QB play was the highlight, last-second penalties were crucial, as the Raiders got two extra chances to score the touchdown with no time on the clock. Derek Carr threw the winning touchdown to Michael Crabtree, beating the Chiefs 31-30.

It's not clear if the officials knew Lynch came in off the bench, but he could clearly be seen running in from the sideline during the altercation.

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.

And in the process, righted a ship taking on enough water that any playoff hopes were almost immersed in four straight defeats.

With their season on the line following the recent slump, Carr led an 85-yard touchdown drive in the final 2:25 to give the Raiders (3-4) the thrilling comeback in a game they trailed by nine points heading into the fourth quarter. "Certainly I think that second-to-last play, the ball got thrown out of the back of the end zone, they called defensive holding and that's not even close to the play".

Elliott granted second injunction, suspension put on hold (again)
The ruling means that Elliott will be on the field with the Cowboys offense at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. It would have made Elliott unavailable for the Cowboys until a November 30 matchup against Washington.

"We didn't give up", Crabtree said. "We'll find a way. Our guys came in with a great mindset and we were determined to leave here with a victory". Loving the challenges that are a part of what we do.

It only felt 10 times longer.

I'm not sure had placekicker Giorgio Tavecchio missed the extra-point that officially gave the Raiders their win, numerous 55,090 in attendance would have had healthy enough blood pressure to endure overtime. Beathard looked good coming off the bench last weekend and is in a solid spot for his first National Football League start.

Like Kansas City's struggles slowing Cooper, the Raiders couldn't reel in the lightning quick Tyreek Hill, who piled up 125 yards on six catches, including a 64-yard score.

Even when they played balls correctly and took smart calculated risks and were in flawless position, the Raiders did things like safety Keith McGill II letting an interception bounce off his hands and into those of Albert Wilson for a 63-yard touchdown. The game's only sack, as it were, produced by the reigning AFC Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack.

"It wasn't pretty", said Mack, "but we got it done". On a play from Kansas City's 42-yard line, Carr came through in the clutch with a 13-yard pass to Jared Cook to keep the drive going. With one official trying to break up the mess, Lynch grabbed him by the shirt and shoved the official back.

Lynch then went and checked on, yes, Peters.

Luckily for Lynch, that ill-advised move didn't ultimately lead to a Raiders loss.

The replay also clearly showed why Lynch was ejected.

If you missed the Chiefs-Raiders game on Thursday, all you missed was possibly the wildest finish of the 2017 season.
