And Cordarrelle Patterson's inability to wrangle a pass before stepping out of the back of the endzone was bailed out by Eric Murray's defensive holding on a first un-timed down.

Coming into Thursday's game, only the 0-6 Browns were seeded lower than the Raiders in the AFC playoff race and Oakland had yet to win a divisional game in two previous chances.

On 25-of-36 passing, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith accounted for 342 of the game's 759 passing yards - Carr: 417 on 29-of-52. Albert Wilson and Travis Kelce had the other touchdowns for the Chiefs.

Wins have been so hard to come by for the Oakland Raiders that it took three tries at the final play for them finally to pull this one out and possibly save their season.

The Oakland Raiders beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night after a mad finish to the game which saw the Raiders score a touchdown to tie the game with time expired. Lynch congratulated his teammates in the locker room after the game but didn't speak to reporters. Nine of Cooper's 11 receptions went for either first downs or scores - 82 percent - including a long grab of 45 yards, which ended in a touchdown. Tight end Jared Cook's fantastic grab unfortunately had him a foot short of the goal line.

Tenbrink is a convicted felon, police noted, and could face an additional charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The office said in a tweet that he had brought a gun onto the campus after being hired by a media organization as security.

Facing 3rd-and-10 on the Chiefs' 43-yard line, the Raiders lined up in an empty-set formation with Lynch on the sidelines.

The Raider's kicker has had a troubled last couple of games and, although a late gust of wind took his kick and surely gave Oakland fans a fright, he converted to give his side the win.

That streak is over and the Raiders are winners for the first time since Week 2, having used as improbable a final scoring drive as it was freaky, the result a 31-30 victory against the Chiefs at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. After a short run, Tyreek Hill beat David Amerson for a 64-yard touchdown pass that gave the Chiefs their first 99-yard drive since doing it December 3, 2006, against Cleveland. With time up, the Chiefs were hit with a penalty for pass interference.

The Raiders were one play away from being 2-5 and riding an atrocious five-game losing streak. Tavecchio also had a false start on an extra point in the third quarter.
