Raiders finally pack win to bring home
CLEVELAND — Derek Carr threw for two touchdowns and safety Charles Woodson made a clinching interception with 38 seconds left as the Raiders snapped an 11-game road losing streak, beating the Browns.
Latavius Murray rushed for 139 yards as Oakland held off a late Cleveland comeback for its first road victory since Nov. 17, 2013, and ended a 16-game skid in the Eastern time zone dating to 2009.
"It was hanging over the whole organization's head," Woodson said of the road slide. "You gotta win these type of games to make the change you want to make."
The Browns were driving for a tying touchdown in the final minute but Woodson intercepted former Bucs starter Josh McCown. Woodson has at least one pick in each of his 18 NFL seasons.
"This is a new group of guys," Carr said. "It's a new coach here, it's a new way that we do things and for this team to get its first road win, it feels awesome."
