"It's an exciting time. It's an exciting time in Oakland...we've come a long way so we're enjoying it. But we have yet to do anything." - Derek Carr

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

"Yeah, I hope so." - Michael Crabtree, on his left ring finger, after it was popped out of place in the game.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Raiders came back from a 24-9 deficit to win. The last time they came back from at least 15 down to win was Sept. 10, 2000 against the Colts, when they trailed 21-0 and won 38-31.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

LeSean McCoy references "super snowball effect" of Raiders' 29 unanswered points. McCoy adds "it sucks" to lose the way Bills did.

"All three phases started clicking...when we have that type of effort, we can have a happy ending." - Jack Del Rio

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

There should be some frustration with Amari Cooper fantasy owners. Cooper caught a touchdown today and he posted 59 yards receiving. But he only saw 4 targets. By comparison, Michael Crabtree was targeted 11 times by quarterback Derek Carr. Given his smooth route running -- and ability after the catch -- I'm surprised Cooper isn't getting more touches in the game plan.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Raiders QB Derek Carr was 10-22 in his first 2 seasons as a starter. He's now 10-2 this season.

Derek Carr put up another MVP-caliber performance. Khalil Mack wrecked shop in his push to be the NFL's defensive player of the year. And the Raiders (10-2) cleared another hurdle with another comeback win, this one 38-24 after trailing 24-9 in the third quarter. But a bigger challenge awaits...and on a short week...and on the road. Paging the Kansas City Chiefs (9-3).

Raiders rally to beat Bills 38-24 to improve to 10-2. The ViewFromVegas is they also covered as 3-point home favorites and improve to 8-4 ATS. The game also flew over the betting total of 49 points to make the Raiders also 10-2 with the over.

Murray finds the end zone twice to spark Raiders (0:42)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack now has 3 forced fumbles in the 4th quarter in his last 5 games. It's the 2nd straight week he had a strip sack in the 4th quarter and recovered the fumble.

How do you win games in the fourth quarter? With a big-time pass rush (or pass-rusher). That's what the Raiders have in Khalil Mack, who just clinched a game for the second consecutive week with a strip sack. Mack is a great player regardless, but he seems to shift into competitive overdrive in the fourth quarter. The Raiders will take it.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Khalil Mack is closing out games again for the Raiders. There's the strip-sack of Tyrod Taylor to force a turnover. Mack just takes over in the fourth quarter. And shows up in critical game situations.

play
Carr finds Cooper for 37-yard touchdown (0:48)

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

There's that smooth route running ability from Raiders WR Amari Cooper. The slant and go. Double-move. Cooper set up the CB to take the bait on the TD pass from Derek Carr. Raiders now up 30-24 over the Bills in the fourth quarter.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Amari Cooper absolutely worked rookie CB Kevin Seymour with a double-move before hauling in the 37-yard TD from Derek Carr. As Greg Papa said on the radio, it was a SLUGGO play, a slant and go.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

For those of you keeping score at home.,,Derek Carr has already led five game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime this season. The Raiders currently trail, 24-23 early in the fourth quarter.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Momentum has shifted here in the Black Hole, the Raiders answering the Bills' two third-quarter TDs with two of their own, The question, as has been all season, is this - can Oakland's defense stay stout as Buffalo leads 24-23 with 57 seconds to go in the third quarter.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Michael Crabtree played with fire on his post-TD celebration. Twice before this season Crabtree was flagged for taunting when refs thought he was doing a throat slash, rather than a Kenny Powers-inspired finger sniff celebration. So had Crabtree been interpreted as doing another throat slash, he would have been ejected from the game with his second personal foul, having been flagged earlier for taunting.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie SS Karl Joseph has a foot injury. Status is QUESTIONABLE.

play
Taylor fools everyone on the keeper for TD (0:34)

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills used the zone-read with a kick-out or wrap block on Tyrod Taylor's TD run. And that was after Buffalo created an explosive play on the counter run to LeSean McCoy. Bills jump to a 17-9 lead over the Raiders in the third quarter.
