Cowboys vs. Raiders score: Derek Carr, Las Vegas upset Dallas in overtime Thanksgiving thriller

The Las Vegas Raiders scored their first victory in over a month, as they downed the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, 36-33 in overtime. This was the sixth overtime game all-time on Thanksgiving, and the third for the Cowboys. They are now 0-3 in Thanksgiving games that went to extra time. The Cowboys have recorded four double-digit comebacks on Thanksgiving, with the last coincidentally coming against the Raiders in 2013. While they came close to pulling out another one on Thursday night, the Dallas defense just couldn’t come up with enough stops. Dak Prescott got the ball to start overtime, but he went three-and-out after a pretty bad misfire intended for Noah Brown on third-and-4. With the Cowboys punting and the Raiders just needing a field goal to win, it started to feel like this one was over.Anthony Brown was called for pass interference on third-and-18 — a penalty which got the Raiders all the way down to the Cowboys’ 24-yard line. A few plays later, Daniel Carlson knocked in a 29-yard game-winning field goal. It was a Turkey Day thriller. Check back soon, as this piece will be turned into a takeaways article which dives deeper into what went down in Texas on Thursday night.
