(TSX / STATS) -- OAKLAND, Calif. -- Derek Carr threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree with no time remaining Thursday night, lifting the Raiders to a stunning 31-30 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs that just may have saved Oakland's season.

The Raiders marched 85 yards in 11 plays for Carr's touchdown pass, tying the game 30-30. Giorgio Tavecchio kicked the extra point.

Instead of falling four games behind the first-place Chiefs (5-2) in the AFC West, the Raiders (3-4) closed to within two games and snapped a four-game losing streak.


Khan: Jealousy fuels Trump's NFL issues

(TSX / STATS) -- Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan thinks he knows why President Donald Trump has had the NFL in his crosshairs.



Pack's Rodgers has surgery on collarbone

(TSX / STATS) -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery Thursday to repair the broken collarbone he sustained Sunday in Green Bay's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, multiple media outlets reported.

There is still no indication of a timetable for Rodgers' return to action. The Packers said earlier this week that Rodgers might miss the rest of the season.


Redskins put rookie DE Allen on IR

(TSX / STATS) -- ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins rookie defensive end Jonathan Allen looked like he belonged from the moment he took the field during organized team activities in May.

A first-round draft pick, chosen No. 17 overall from Alabama, Allen spent the rest of the summer and his first six NFL games showing that initial impression was correct. But his promising first season is likely over after having surgery to repair a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot. Washington placed Allen on injured reserve Thursday, a blow to a defense that has dramatically improved against the run.


Colts shut down Luck, no timetable

(TSX / STATS) -- Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is being shut down due to soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder.

Luck, who has yet to take a snap this season and only recently returned to practice, is without a timetable for his return.


Winston limited, Bucs prep Fitzpatrick

(TSX / STATS) -- TAMPA -- Ryan Fitzpatrick is one of four players to throw a touchdown pass for seven teams in his career. He could be facing one of them Sunday when the Bucs play the Buffalo Bills at Rich Stadium.

Starting quarterback Jameis Winston has a sprained AC joint in his right throwing shoulder and will not attempt to throw a football until later in the week. If he plays, it will likely be a game-time decision.


Vikings QB Bridgewater finally practices

(TSX / STATS) -- EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater practiced for the first time since his horrific left knee injury 13 1/2 months ago. Sam Bradford was absent again as he continues to rehab his injured left knee. And, oh yeah, Case Keenum's knees were fine as he prepared to start a fifth game for a Vikings team that's 4-2, sitting atop the NFC North and holding the head-to-head tiebreaker with Green Bay.

That, in one paragraph, was the Vikings' quarterback situation on Wednesday. Assuming everything stays the same, Keenum will start against the Ravens (3-3) at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday. He'll be backed up by undrafted rookie Kyle Sloter once again.


Trump rips NFL for letting players kneel

(TSX / STATS) -- President Donald Trump continued his criticism of the NFL on Wednesday morning following the league owners' meeting with players to discuss the ongoing national anthem protests.

"The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!" Trump tweeted.


49ers cut CB Hall, re-sign TE Paulsen

(TSX / STATS) -- The San Francisco 49ers released veteran cornerback Leon Hall and re-signed tight end Logan Paulsen on Thursday.

Hall was let go just nine days after signing with the club. He was inactive for last week's game against Washington and practiced with the club four times.


Goodell: No mandate on players standing

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- It appears as if the main thing to come out of Tuesday's meeting between NFL players and owners was mutual respect.

Many owners acknowledged the players' right to protest and what they are protesting about, and seem willing to effect change in whatever form that may take in their respective communities. The players seemed appeased by having the owners at least hear them out on these topics, and in the owners' willingness to continue the conversation in later meetings.
