The Oakland Raiders saved themselves the embarrassment of possibly becoming the second team in NFL history to finish a season with an 0-16 record.
The Raiders defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 24-20, to improve to 1-10 as the Chiefs fell to 7-4. They took the lead in the fourth quarter with 1:42 remaining, and their defense was able to hold strong despite showing a lack of discipline on a couple of plays.
A pass interference penalty was called on fourth down, and defensive end Justin Tuck called a timeout when the Raiders prematurely celebrated a sack.
Quarterback Derek Carr came through in the clutch for his team as he threw the game-winning touchdown to wide receiver James Jones, and running back Latavius Murray enjoyed a great game as he rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns on four carries.
For the Chiefs, quarterback Alex Smith threw for 234 yards and two touchdowns on 20-of-36 passing and rallied his team back from a 17-3 deficit to give them a 20-17 lead before they lost it again.
Running back Jamaal Charles ran for 80 yards on 19 carries and added four receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown.
