The Oakland Raiders’ offense might very well be among the most talented in the entire NFL. Entering Week 3, Derek Carr and Co. ranked in the top 10 in scoring.
Add three touchdown passes from Carr to Michael Crabtree, and there’s reason for hope in Oakland. Hope that the Raiders may break their long playoff drought.
After Oakland seemingly gave the game away against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Carr hit Crabtree in the end zone for the third time in the game.
And it was a thing of beauty.

Not only was this an amazing throw by Carr, it was an equally outstanding catch by Crabtree. His ability to get two feet down is what made this play.
By virtue of this 23-yard pass and catch, Oakland took a one-point lead into the two-minute warning.
