Raiders finally succeed in beating Baltimore Ravens

/ 06:54 AM September 14, 2021

Derek Carr lofted a 31-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Zay Jones with 3:38 left in overtime to give the Las Vegas Raiders a wild 33-27 victory over the visiting Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

The winning score came two plays after Carl Nassib forced a fumble by Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, and Darius Philon recovered at the Baltimore 27.

Las Vegas, which won the toss to start overtime, appeared to win the game earlier in OT when Carr hit Bryan Edwards with a 33-yard pass up the right sideline that was ruled a touchdown on the field. The call was reversed following a replay review that showed that Edwards’ knee hit the ground before he extended the ball over the goal line.

Carr was then stopped on a sneak, and after rookie right tackle Alex Leatherwood picked up a 5-yard false start penalty, Carr threw an incomplete pass. On third-and-goal, Carr’s pass intended for Willie Snead was deflected and intercepted in the end zone by Anthony Averett.

Baltimore took a 24-17 lead on an 8-yard touchdown run by Latavius Murray with 6:04 left in the fourth quarter. The touchdown came one play after Jackson connected with Sammy Watkins for a 49-yard completion.

But Carr, connecting on 6 of 8 passes for 82 yards, drove the Raiders to the tying touchdown, hitting Waller with a 10-yard touchdown with 3:44 to go.

Tucker appeared to win it for the Ravens when he connected on a 47-yard field goal with 37 seconds left.

Instead, Carlson tied it with his 55-yarder with two seconds remaining. It came after Carr hit Edwards, who hadn’t caught a pass the entire game, for completions of 20 and 18 yards.
