Panthers Can’t Rally Late; Fall to 4-7 After 35-32 Loss to Raiders in Oakland

Carolina Panthers v Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr came back from an injured pinkie to lead another fourth-quarter comeback and the Raiders won their fifth straight game, beating the Panthers 35-32 on Sunday.

Carr threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns despite missing a series after the injury, leading the Raiders (9-2) back from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to clinch their first winning season since 2002.

After leading a game-tying drive earlier in the fourth quarter, Carr hit Michael Crabtree on a 49-yard pass on third-and-9 from the 14 to help set up Sebastian Janikowski’s 23-yard field goal with 1:45 left that gave Oakland the lead.

Cam Newton led the Panthers (4-7) into Oakland territory on the final drive but Greg Olsen dropped a pass on third down that would have put Carolina in field goal range and Khalil Mack stripped Newton on a fourth-down sack to seal the win.
