Raiders quarterback Derek Carr passed for 351 yards and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw for even more in an entertaining afternoon in Oakland. The game-winning home run came late when Carr hit Seth Roberts for a score.
All Raiders quarterback Derek Carr wanted after he threw a late interception was another chance. When he got it, he made the best of it.
