Oakland Raiders 27, Cleveland Browns 20.
Derek Carr continued where he left off against the Ravens last week with another breakout performance – this time against the Browns. Again he favorite target was rookie Amari Cooper, who had over one hundred yards receiving before half time.
What was different in this game however was the Raiders also got their rushing attack going to the tune of 139 yards for Murray and 155 yards total.
But the real thing of beauty in this game was the play that ended a late comeback push for the Browns and sealed the victory. It was the 61st interception for future Hall Of Fame defensive back – Charles Woodson. The Raiders bated the Browns into throwing the ball and as soon as it was released it was clear what had happened. Woodson’s interception also ties an NFL record – most seasons consecutive with an interception – at 18 seasons. It also moves him into 11th all-time on the leaderboard.
The eleven game streak of road loses is now a memory and the Raiders now sit at 2-1 and second place in the division behind the Broncos.
