The win ends a three-game losing streak for the Raiders and is their first Thanksgiving win since 1968.
It’s a crushing loss for the Cowboys who have Super Bowl aspirations this season.
After the game, as is Thanksgiving tradition in the NFL, a player from the winning team celebrates in style by taking a bite of a turkey leg. And this time it was Carlson’s turn after his clutch kick.
But this time around, they entered the game shorthanded, missing their top two wide receivers to Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
And that resulted in a slow start for the Cowboys offense, as the Raiders took a 17-13 halftime lead.
Despite the loss of star tight end Darren Waller during the game to injury, the Raiders continued to score and lead Dallas.
Carlson scored his fourth basket of the game with 1:57 left in the fourth quarter to give the Raiders a three-point cushion, but Dallas kicker Greg Zuerlein scored a 45-yard field goal with seconds left to tie the game. match at 33-33 and send it overtime.
After the Cowboys’ practice stalled in overtime, the big pass interference play on Brown – fourth called him into the game – in the third and -18 set up Carlson’s winning kick.
The loss is the Cowboys’ fourth in their last five Thanksgiving games.
Carr pitched for 373 yards and one touchdown, while Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott finished with 375 yards and two touchdowns.
There were 28 extraordinary penalties in the game for 276 yards, as well as a scuffle between the two teams that led to two expulsions and a referee who had his chin bloodied in the third quarter.
Lions drought continues
The Detroit Lions will have to wait a little longer for their first win of the season after losing 16-14 to the Chicago Bears earlier at Thanksgiving.
A last-second field goal from Bears kicker Cairo Santos secured the desperate Lions’ winless start to the season, which means they are slipping to 0-10-1 this season.
The game began with a strange opening draw where the Lions chose to postpone after winning the draw. When asked by officials if they wanted the ball, the Bears players chose to postpone, which they were told they couldn’t because the Lions had already chosen to postpone.
But the win could prove to be vital for the pressured Bears head coach Matt Nagy, whose future at the helm of the franchise has been the subject of speculation this week.
“When there are distractions, which is in all sports, in all the facts of life, there will always be distractions,” he told media after his team improved their record to 4 -7 with victory.
“That’s how you deal with them. And again, we got the win today, and it could have gone different ways. But the reason we got the win is because of the the way they handled the distractions, you know?
“It’s there for me, when you’re in this business and leading people, it’s my job to ensure honest and open communication. This is where, for me, I can’t. just not telling you how much this victory means to me today because of what they have done. “
