The Oakland Raiders did not make win that they needed against the Kansas City Chiefs easy on Thursday night.
On a final drive that included a 4th and 11 conversion, the Raiders appeared to have won the game on a 29-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Derek Carr to tight end Jared Cook with 16 seconds remaining, but after review the referees ruled that he was down near the goal line.
The next play was a touchdown pass to wide receiver Michael Crabtree, but that was called back because of offensive pass interference. On the following play the Chiefs appeared to stop the Raiders as the clock expired, but defensive holding was called on safety Ron Parker.
The Raiders got an untimed down for the game, and Carr threw an incomplete pass to wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. However, Chiefs cornerback Eric Murray was called for defensive holding.
That gave the Raiders one more untimed down from the two-yard-line and he completed a pass to Crabtree to tie the game at 30. Kicker Giorgio Tavecchio made the extra point to give his team the 31-30 win.
