Recap From Raiders 40-34 Win

The Las Vegas Raiders saw overtime heroics for the second week in a row as they beat the Seattle Seahawks, 40-34.

There's a lesson to be learned for the Las Vegas Raiders from their last two games, both of which were overtime victories. 

It's that, especially when all else seems to be failing, it's normally best to get the ball in the hands of your play-makers and get out of the way. 

That's what the Raiders learned last week when wide receiver Davante Adams scored a walk-off touchdown in overtime, and it should only be reinforced after running back Josh Jacobs did the same against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. 

Jacobs' 86-yard winning run was the punctuation mark on a day full of offense by both teams in a 40-34 Raiders win. 

It wasn't all perfect execution, as both teams combined for four turnovers, but that didn't take away from the offensive fireworks. 

Jacobs finished with a career-high 229 yards rushing and two touchdowns, while quarterback Derek Carr threw for 295 yards and three touchdowns. 

Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith dueled with Carr in kind, throwing for 328 yards and two touchdowns. 

Smith also was under threat from the Raiders pass rush for much of the day, with defensive end Maxx Crosby finishing with 1.5 sacks. 

It was the rare time where it felt like anybody's game the whole way, though, but now the Raiders have room to breathe. 

It's going to take a blazing finish to make fans forget at all about the missteps for the Raiders this season, but this two-game winning streak can be the first try in rebuilding some goodwill.
