Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) -
It has been a long 368 days for Oakland, but there was finally joy at the Black Hole on Thursday night.
Rookie quarterback Derek Carr led the way as the Raiders put an end to their 16-game losing streak with a thrilling 24-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Carr's late touchdown pass to James Jones capped off a lengthy drive that proved to be the difference as the Raiders (1-10) won their first games since Nov. 17, 2013 against Houston.

When it came to the Adrian Peterson punishment, the only real issue was whether Roger Goodell was going to temper the tyrannical act or return to his default settings as judge, jury and executioner of all things related to personal conduct in the NFL.
That was answered Tuesday when "Moral Roger" resurfaced, taking on his "700 Club" persona to not only suspend Peterson for at least the remainder of the 2014 season but also pontificate from a horse so high, the Guinness Book of World Records was called in to document the height of his soap box.
