Carr delivers another comeback

OAKLAND, Calif. — Derek Carr came back from an injured pinkie against the Panthers to lead another fourth-quarter comeback and the Raiders won their fifth straight game to clinch their first winning season since 2002.

Carr threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns despite missing a series after the injury, leading Oakland back from an eight-point fourth-quarter deficit. After leading a tying drive in the fourth — his NFL-best 12th tying or go-ahead scoring pass in the quarter — Carr hit Michael Crabtree on a 49-yard pass on third and 9 from the Oakland 14-yard line to help set up Sebastian Janikowski's 23-yard field goal with 1:45 left.

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

The Panthers scored the first 25 points in the second half after Carr left the game when he hurt his right pinkie while fumbling a snap on the second play from scrimmage in the third quarter.
