The Raiders set an NFL record with 23 penalties in a 30–24 overtime win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The penalties, which totaled 200 yards, broke the previous record of 22 reached by three franchises. The Brooklyn Tigers and Chicago Bears each committed 22 in a game in 1944, and the 49ers reached the mark in 1998.

Oakland was called for holding four times, unnecessary roughness four times, pass interference, illegal use of hands, illegal formation, 12 men on the field and false start twice, and picked up one taunting, intentional grounding, ineligible downfield on a kick, delay of game, and illegal block above the waist.

The team also had three penalties declined and one offset with another.

Derek Carr passed for 513 yards and threw the game-winning touchdown to Seth Roberts in OT.
