The Raiders can never make things easy, can they? After holding a 25-14 lead in the fourth quarter, the game ended up going to overtime with the Raiders having a second possession with under three minutes left.
On 2nd and 15, the Raiders found Mr. Overtime in Bryan Edwards. It was a 34-yard reception that helped get them across midfield and nearly into field goal range. It was a gorgeous ball by Derek Carr to help gain the first down and set up the eventual game-winning field goal.

Edwards finished the game with 89 yards on three receptions. He led the team in receiving yards for the first time in his career and second-year receiver Henry Ruggs also made a few huge plays, as well.
The Raiders sit at 3-0 for the first time since 2002 and a huge reason is due to their young receivers. Through two games, Edwards has totaled 210 yards and one touchdown. Look for him to continue to be a focal point in the offense for the Raiders going forward.
