Raiders 24, Titans 21

Raiders get call, then get winner

NASHVILLE — The Raiders found a way to pull out a win on a wet, sloppy day. A quarterback with a little bit of experience certainly helped. And a very timely flag.

Derek Carr threw a 12-yard touchdown to Seth Roberts with 1:21 left after Oakland appeared to turn it over on downs, and the Raiders stopped a three-game skid by edging the Titans.

The Raiders squandered a 17-6 lead in the third quarter but recovered in time to snap a three-game skid to the Titans.

"I'm really proud of the way the guys stayed in it," Oakland coach Jack Del Rio said. "It was tough. There was a reason to be discouraged."

The Titans lost for the ninth time in 10 games after rallying to take a 21-17 lead. They thought they had a game-saving play when safety Michael Griffin broke up a pass in the end zone on fourth down.

But officials flagged cornerback B.W. Webb for holding.

Del Rio said rookie receiver Amari Cooper was held. Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said he had no idea where the flag came from and did not agree with the penalty.

"The one call is the call, it changes the game, changes the outcome of the game," Mularkey said. "It's frustrating, very frustrating."

Two plays later, Carr hit Roberts for the winning touchdown.
