Raiders beat Cowboys 36-33 in OT on field goal after penalty

Arlington, Texas — Daniel Carlson kicked a 29-yard field goal in overtime after Anthony Brown’s fourth pass-interference penalty kept the drive alive, and the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Dallas Cowboys 36-33 on Thursday.

Carlson’s fifth field goal came after Brown was called for an intervention on third and Jay Jones on 18. All four of Brown’s interference penalties came on third-down imperfections.

The Raiders (6-5) ended a three-game losing streak with their first Thanksgiving win since 1968. It was his fourth appearance on holiday since then, with the last two defeats coming to the Cowboys.

Carlson led Las Vegas 33–30, with a career-long 56-yard distance of 1:52 remaining. Greg Zuerlein, who missed an extra point after the first Dallas TD, answered with a 45-yarder with 19 seconds to spare.

Toni Pollard made a 100-yard kickoff return for Dallas in the third quarter, but was stopped inside 15 to start overtime. The Cowboys went three-out on their 7th start, and the Raiders secured their third win for the AFC West against the NFC East-leading Cowboys (7–4) in the last four games.

Brown turned his back to Jones when Derek Carr threw a pass with Las Vegas on 43. The penalty put the Raiders into the Dallas 24, and the winning kick came when Dallas was penalized twice for moving over the line of scrimmage before the snap.

Both teams had season highs in penalties and yards. Dallas took 14 for 166 and Las Vegas took 14 for 110.

Carr threw for 373 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown strike to Dacian Jackson. Marcus Mariota had a short scoring run on the shotgun keeper.

The Dallas offense struggled early without top receivers Amari Cooper (COVID-19 Protocol) and CeeDee Lamb (concussion) and Ezekiel Elliott running back with a right knee injury.

Dak Prescott passed 209 of his 375 yards in the fourth quarter. His 32-yard touchdown pass to Dalton Schultz and a 2-point conversion toss to the tight end pulled the Cowboys on 30 with 2:54 remaining, when they were nearly trailing from the start.

Jackson successfully tip-toed to the side to open the scoring and drew one of the interference penalties against Brown in the end zone to set up Josh Jacobs’ 1-yard TD.

Sean McCann had his first career touchdown, a 10-yard catch for the Cowboys’ first point. Elliott, who was limited to nine carries for 25 yards, had a 1-yard TD.

Calvin Joseph of Dallas and Roderick Teimer of the Raiders were kicked out after receiving personal foul penalties at the end of the Las Vegas punt on first possession of the second half. Field judge Tom Hill made a small cut on his chin during a crack on the Raiders’ sideline.

This was the second consecutive week that the Cowboys had a face-off with an opponent during a punt. And rookie Joseph ended the rest of the game a week after he stayed home for personal reasons.
