LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Derek Carr threw a 31-yard TD pass to Zay Jones after the Raiders squandered their first possession of overtime, beating the Baltimore Ravens 33-27 in the team’s first game with fans in Las Vegas.

Carr’s second TD pass of the game came after Carl Nassib’s strip sack of Lamar Jackson at the Ravens 27.

Nassib made big news this offseason when he became the first active NFL player to come out as gay.

The Ravens had won five straight openers.

Carr went 34/56 passing for 435 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Josh Jacobs ran in two touchdowns on 34 rushing yards. Darren Waller hauled in 10 receptions for 105 yards and one TD.

Lamar Jackson went 19/30 for 235 yards and one touchdown, along with 12 carries for 86 yards. He fumbled the ball three times and lost it twice.
