It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but the Raiders ultimately got the result they were hoping for last Thursday with a 36-33 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

They relied on the efforts of QB Derek Carr, who passed for one TD and 373 yards on 39 attempts, and RB Josh Jacobs, who punched in one rushing touchdown. Carr's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals two weeks ago.

McKissic filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD.
