Cooper's massive night sets up Carr-Crabtree Thursday heroics

Giorgio Tavecchio won it with the extra point with no time on the clock. The Raiders thought they had the lead when a Jared Cook catch was ruled a touchdown with 18 seconds left, but replay overturned the call marking him down at the 1.

If you missed the Chiefs-Raiders game on Thursday, all you missed was possibly the wildest finish of the 2017 season.

Also, another controversy surrounding this match because the referees made two straight defensive holding calls on the final play of the game, and made it possible for the Raiders to be in the better position before the last attack. They're real close, they're more like brothers than cousins, they're real close.

Crabtree's touchdown came on a third untimed down. Carr rolled out to his left, zeroed in on Crabtree and tossed a dart to a spot where only his man could catch it. Crabtree held onto the ball a yard inside the end zone and completed the process of the catch. He lived up to his reputation on Thursday night, burning Raiders defensive backs for a jaw-dropping touchdown to give the Chiefs their first lead of the game.

Cooper then put an exclamation point on the first quarter with a second impressive score, catching a Derek Carr pass at the Chiefs' 30 and burning a pair of K.C. defenders for seven. Heading into Thursday's game, Amari Cooper had just 146 yards (a smidge over 24 yards per game) and a touchdown.

LONG DRIVE: After Marquette King pinned the Chiefs at their own 1 with a flawless punt early in the second quarter, Kansas City needed little time to turn the momentum. Smith has already equaled last year's season total with 15 touchdowns and is yet to throw an interception. While Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington did their best to man the depleted running back corps, Lynch chose to watch the rest of the game from the bleachers because Oakland.

The scuffle started after a third down play in which Raiders lineman Donald Penn, Gabe Jackson, Vadal Alexander and Kelechi Osemele approached Peters after the Chiefs committed what they felt was a late hit on Carr.

While the play was the first visual representation of the relationship between Lynch and Peters, the bond between the two runs much deeper. Peters also was called for a personal foul on the play.

"I've never been part of a game that came down so dramatic", linebacker Derrick Johnson said. "Marshawn's smart. He's going to learn from that moving forward".

Till that point, Lynch had managed only nine yards off two carries - the Oakland native is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry so far this season and is yet to have a 100-yard game this season, tallying more than 50 yards only twice. Lynch guided the prospect through the draft process after he got kicked off the team his senior year.
