WATCH: Derek Carr connects with Michael Crabtree to win game

By Michael Dixon

The Oakland Raiders and New Orleans Saints engaged in one of Sunday’s best games. So, when trailing by seven points, when the Raiders scored a touchdown, the game appeared headed for overtime.

Jack Del Rio and the Raiders had other ideas and went for two. Derek Carr found Michael Crabtree on a beautiful corner route to take the lead.

The two-pointer would eventually be the game-winner, but not without some more tense moments. Drew Brees got the Saints into position and rookie kicker Wil Lutz attempted a 61-yarder that would have won the game.

Lutz had plenty of leg, but put just a little too much hook on the ball. Oakland escaped New Orleans with a thrilling 35-34 win.
