Raiders, Derek Carr push past Ravens, Lamar Jackson in OT

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr found Zay Jones with a 31-yard touchdown pass to lift the Raiders past the Baltimore Ravens 33-27 in overtime on Monday night.

Carr passed for 435 yards and two scores, helping the Raiders get the game to OT by driving at the end of the fourth quarter to set up a 55-yard game-tying field goal from Daniel Carlson. Lamar Jackson accounted for 321 total yards and a passing touchdown, and the Ravens ran for 189 yards despite playing without their top two running backs.

With four shots to score from the 1-yard line in overtime for the win, the Raiders made it eventful.

Bryan Edwards caught a 33-yard pass from Carr on the first possession of OT to put the Raiders at first-and-goal at the 1. But when Carr was stymied on a sneak attempt, the Raiders were backed up four yards on a false start by Alex Leatherwood. Carr threw incomplete from the 5-yard line and then had a pass go through the hands of Willie Snead IV then take a deflection for an interception by Anthony Averett.

But the Raiders’ defense tightened up. Carl Nassib forced a fumble out of Jackson on third down to get the ball back, and Carr responded.

Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had two rushing touchdowns, and tight end Darren Waller had 10 catches for 105 yards, including a game-tying 10-yard TD catch from Carr with 3:49 left in the fourth quarter. Jackson led the Ravens into field goal range quickly with a 28-yard scramble up the middle on second-and-10 with under two minutes remaining, setting up a 47-yard field goal by Justin Tucker for a brief 27-24 lead.

Follow the Ravens’ losses of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards to season-ending knee injuries in the preseason, Ty’Son Williams rushed for 65 yards and a touchdown. Jackson added a team-high 86 yards on the ground. Raiders defensive lineman Gerald McCoy had to be carted off in the fourth quarter with a knee injury.
