Raiders Notch Year’s First Win, Upset Chiefs 24-20

Raiders Notch Year’s First Win, Upset Chiefs 24-20

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- Derek Carr threw only one touchdown pass Thursday night, but it was the most important one for the Oakland Raiders. With 1:42 remaining in regulation, Carr connected with James Jones on a 9-yard scoring play that put the Raiders ahead for good as they beat the Kansas City Chiefs 24-20.

It was the first win of the year for Oakland (1-10) who snapped a 16-game losing streak that dated back to last season. Led by a dominant run game, the Raiders racked up 179 yards on the ground while the defense held the Chiefs to just one touchdown on three redzone trips. 

"That was really hard-fought, they are a great team obviously, they will probably go to the playoffs and do some great things," Carr said. "I can't wait to see my teammates' smiles."

The Raiders jumped out to a 14-0 lead on a pair of touchdown runs from Latavius Murray in the first half. Kansas City (7-4) eventually clawed back, tying the game at 17-17 in the four quarter when Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles connected for a 30-yard touchdown pass. The Chiefs then took the lead on a Cairo Santos field goal with nine minutes to play.

Over the next seven minutes, Carr orchestrated a 17-play, 80-yard drive that ended with the Raiders earning their first victory since Nov. 17, 2013, when they defeated Houston.

Meanwhile, Kansas City had their five-game win streak snapped and fell half a game behind Denver for first place in the AFC West.

Manning Tosses Five TDs, Broncos Stomp Raiders

Manning Tosses Five TDs, Broncos Stomp Raiders

Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- After a disappointing loss to New England last week, the Denver Broncos righted the ship with a 41-17 trouncing over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Peyton Manning tossed five touchdowns for the Broncos (7-2) while the defense held Oakland (0-9) to less than 250 total yards of offense.

The game did not start off that well for Manning and the Broncos. A pair of early interceptions saw Denver trailing 10-6 with 11 minutes to play in the second quarter. That all changed when C.J. Anderson caught a screen pass and scampered 51 yards for a touchdown, giving Denver a 13-10 advantage.

That scoring play started a string of five touchdown passes on five possessions for Manning, turning a brief upset scare into another rout. The Raiders were held scoreless for almost the entire second half, scoring a garbage touchdown with less than a minute remaining in regulation.

It was the ninth time in Manning's career that he threw for at least five touchdowns, breaking a tie with Drew Brees for the most in NFL history. The 38-year-old also extended his own league mark of most consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes to 15 games. Both Julius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders each caught a pair of touchdowns in the win.

Derek Carr threw two touchdowns in the loss, but also threw a pair of interceptions.

Raiders Fire Head Coach Dennis Allen

Raiders Fire Head Coach Dennis Allen

Justin Sullivan/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- After a 0-4 start to the season, the Oakland Raiders have fired head coach Dennis Allen.

Allen ends his tenure like the six head coaches that preceded him, with a losing record. In his two-plus seasons under the helm, Allen went just 8-28.

Dating back to November 2013, the Raiders have lost ten-straight games and are 0-4 for the first time since 2006. The Raiders lost by 20 or more points in nine of Allen's 36 games as coach.

"It's a tough deal, especially for him," tight end David Ausberry told ESPN. "As we all know, this is the NFL and it keeps growing. So we just all got to as a team pull together and keep going forward. That's all we really can do."

Since Allen was hired back in 2012, the Raiders have a .222 winning percentage, which is the second-worst mark in the NFL over that time.

Since 2001, the Raiders have had seven head coaches, the most in the NFL during that time.

Raiders ‘Host’ Dolphins at Wembley Stadium

Raiders ‘Host’ Dolphins at Wembley Stadium

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(LONDON) -- The Oakland Raiders will "host" the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on Sunday. 

Oakland was designated the "home" team for their game and both teams are looking forward to the opportunity of showcasing the NFL to new fans.

Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr wants to get his first win of the season anyway possible.

"I'll throw five touchdowns or five picks," Carr said Wednesday.  "I could care less, I just want to win, that's all this game is about, that's all that matters in the NFL."

"It's a good football team," Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said of Miami. "They like to pressure the quarterback; we've got to understand what they're trying to do.  We've got to take care of the front-four; we've got to be able to make some plays down the field when we get some opportunities."

The Raiders are coming off a 16-9 loss last week against New England.

Derek Carr, Raiders, Ready for Jets on Sunday

Derek Carr, Raiders, Ready for Jets on Sunday

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- Oakland Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr will get his first start on Sunday against the Jets on the road.

Carr was named the starter earlier this week over veteran quarterback Matt Schaub and is ready for everything that Jets head coach Rex Ryan has to throw at him.

"He’s got a great blitz package. He’s got, obviously, a lot of different looks that he’ll show. Me being a rookie, he’s probably going to want to show them all. I go in and expect, as much as I can, I expect everything. Then if something doesn’t happen, then I’ll be surprised," Carr said Tuesday.

"That’s how I have to prepare. I have to prepare for everything, even maybe for something he hasn’t shown but could show," he continued. "Obviously I reach out to anybody who can help me. I called my brother because he’s played them seven times. I called him and said, ‘Hey, let’s talk Jets. You were there, you’ve seen them.’ So we talked. I picked his brain, took notes and that was it. Now I went about my business for the rest of the week, picked [Matt] Schaub’s brain, picked the coaches’ brain, so I expect a lot."

The Raiders have a brand new roster full of veterans to go along with Carr. Still, Ryan isn't concerned about it.

"We’re just going to show up and do what we do. Again, we played the Raiders last year, we’ve seen their tape, they’ve seen us and everything else. That part of it is, it’s not like, oh, all of a sudden you’re going to run the wishbone, which by the way, we’re going to run this game. That part of it, ‘oh, we’re holding them back,’ I don’t believe that, everybody, you just play, and that’s really what you do," Ryan said on Wednesday.

The Raiders have lost 12 straight games on the East coast, but Ryan doesn't think geographic location has anything to do with it.

"I think at one point it’s overblown, because I think when you look at last year the teams that had the most success were west coast teams coming to the east coast. Now, obviously with the Raiders having bad numbers, they haven’t had the success of it, but I think it’s football is football, regardless of where you play it,” Ryan said of their poor record.

Raiders Name Derek Carr as Starter

Raiders Name Derek Carr as Starter

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Oakland Raiders announced on Monday that rookie quarterback Derek Carr will start Week One for the team.

Carr becomes the 18th different starting quarterback since 2003, beating out veteran Matt Schaub.

"Not an indictment on Matt Schaub, Derek Carr is mature beyond his years," coach Dennis Allen said. "We feel very comfortable with him helping us win football games. ...Derek is the starting quarterback."

A second-round draft pick out of Fresno State, Carr was 11-for-13 passing in the Raiders final preseason game with three touchdowns to help beat Seattle 41-31. The rookie is expected to be the only first-year player to start at quarterback in the NFL week 1.

Oakland will travel to MetLife Stadium on Sunday to take on the New York Jets in the season opener.

Woodley: Raiders Are Still a Playoff Contender

Woodley: Raiders Are Still a Playoff Contender

Al Bello/Getty Images(ALAMEDA) -- Oakland Raiders defensive end LaMarr Woodley still believes that this current roster is a playoff team in 2014.

The Raiders reported to OTAs on Tuesday and Woodley backed up his comments from March about the team being a playoff contender.

"People definitely reacted when I said this was a playoff-caliber team," Woodley said. "That should always be the main objective. If your goal is to go 8-8, I don’t want you on my team. We’re aiming for the top. Anything less is unacceptable."

Woodley believes that the team has a lot of potential, with new veterans brought in that include quarterback Matt Schaub.

"After going back and looking at Raiders games from last year, they were in a lot of close games and couldn’t seal the deal," Woodley said. "During the offseason, they brought in guys who know how to win. You need that attitude to get to the next level."

Woodley spent his first seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers before coming to Oakland this offseason.
