The Las Vegas Raiders took care of business against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12, and here are three surprises from the victory on the road.
With their season on the line, the Las Vegas Raiders made a holiday road trip to Arlington, Texas, where they took on the 7-3 Dallas Cowboys. A big underdog going into the game, the Raiders were able to come away with the victory, though they had to work overtime to do so.
In the end, Derek Carr played one of his best games of the season, doing it without Darren Waller for much of the game, as Waller went down with a knee injury in the first half. The defense was able to get some stops when needed, including a three-and-out in overtime, as the Silver and Black snapped their three-game losing streak.
With a home game against the Washington Football Team on the horizon, the Raiders have a real chance to move to 7-5 before a road trip to Arrowhead to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The team is at a crossroads, but passed the first test, though choppy waters are still ahead for the franchise.
