Carr’s TD Pass Caps Raiders Rally Past Ravens 33-27 In OT
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.
