Watch: Michael Crabtree catches TD after Malcolm Smith forces fumble

Friday December 25th, 2015

A late Michael Crabtree touchdown gave the Raiders a lead over the Chargers with less than five minutes remaining. 

Crabtree’s touchdown followed a Raiders fumble recovery. Malcolm Smith stripped the ball from Chargers tight end David Johnson, and Benson Mayowa scooped it up and returned it inside the Chargers’ five–yard line. 

On the next play, Derek Carr found Crabtree on a fade in the left corner of the endzone. 

The touchdown and ensuing two–point conversion gave Oakland a 20–17 lead. 

The Chargers tied the game with a field goal on their next drive.
