"This is a billion dollar industry and it comes down to that?" - Greg Papa, on a piece of paper being used to determine if the football's nose reached the chain for a first down.

Crabtree comes away with two TD catches (0:46)

Derek Carr has 2 TD passes against the blitz. He had 1 TD against the blitz in his last 6 games combined, per ESPN Stats & Information.

That Cowboys scoring drive was set up by the fake punt on 4th and 11 in Dallas territory...when the Raiders had two returners back, giving Dallas a man advantage up front and giving punter Chris Jones the option to take off and pick up 24 yards on the run.

Derek Carr also joined Ken Stabler (150), Daryle Lamonica (148) and Rich Gannon (114) as the fourth Raiders QB to throw at least 100 TD passes. https://twitter.com/ESPNNFL/status/942596909813858306

Sean Smith's 22-yard pick-six is overturned. he was touched and downed by Cole Beasley. The last Raiders player with a multi-pick game was Charles Woodson, in 2015, vs. the Broncos' Peyton Manning.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

That was Derek Carr's 100th career TD pass, becoming the ninth QB to throw at least 100 TDs in 60 games, joining Dan Marino (145), Johnny Unitas (111), Andrew Luck (111), Matthew Stafford (108), Kurt Warner (106), Peyton Manning (105), Aaron Rodgers (104), Carson Palmer (101).

Thinking out loud here...but can you say a touchdown was 'nullified' by penalty when the TD was made possible by said penalty? That happened on both the Jared Cook (Cook pushed off) and Cordarrelle Patterson (Xavier Woodson-Luster tackled a Cowboy in front of Patterson to spring him) scores. So instead of leading the Cowboys, 14-10, the Raiders still trail, 10-0.

Donald Penn (foot) is OUT...

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

So this was letting it rip, as Raiders coach Jack Del Rio insisted his offense would do against the Cowboys? Meh...before going hurry-up with 2 minutes to go in the half and getting as close as the Dallas 11-yard line -- Jared Cook's TD was waved off for pass interference on him -- the Raiders had all of 52 yards of offense. Then, Giorgio Tavecchio's fourth-missed field goal of the season, at the gun, ensured a scoreless first half for the fourth time this season for the Raiders. Letting it rip? This season is almost R.I.P.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Raiders LT Donald Penn (foot) is QUESTIONABLE to return, while DT Treyvon Hester (ankle) is OUT.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

First quarter ends and Cowboys outgaining Raiders in total yards, 148-7. The Raiders have gone three-and-out on offense both times they had the ball, despite having 2nd and 1 and a 2nd and 2.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

With Donald Penn limping off the field, Marshall Newhouse moves to left tackle and Vadal Alexander comes in at right tackle. Two weeks ago, when Penn came out for a series, rookie David Sharpe replaced Penn at left tackle. Sharpe is inactive tonight.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The presence of NaVorro Bowman helped create that Sean Smith interception as Dak Prescott's pass to Dez Bryant was high. And with Bowman closing in on an exposed Bryant, Bryant pulled back and went alligator arms, and the ball landed in Smith's hands. That is just the third INT by the Raiders this season, the first by a cornerback.

Rodney Hudson named winner of Raiders Commitment to Excellence Award for 2017 season.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Jerry Jones and Mark Davis chop it up.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Per ESPN Stats & Information, the only remaining playoff elimination possibilities this weekend are in the NFC – the Packers (with a Falcons win at Tampa Bay tomorrow night) and the Cowboys (with a loss to the Raiders AND a Falcons win).

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

And...the 49ers do the Raiders a solid by beating the Titans, whose loss keeps Oakland alive in the AFC playoff race no matter what happens tonight vs. the Cowboys.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Derek Carr had shown steady improvement in his deep passing the first 3 seasons of his career, but this year he's back to square one now on passes traveling at least 20 yards downfield, per ESPN Stats & Information - 2014 (22% completion rate, which ranked 33rd in the NFL), 2015 (37%, 13th), 2016 (49%, 4th), 2017 (26%, 33rd)

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Derek Carr's next TD pass will be the 100th of his career and Sunday is his 60th career game. Only 8 QBs have thrown 100 Pass TD in their first 60 NFL games - Dan Marino (145), Johnny Unitas (111), Andrew Luck (111), Matthew Stafford (108), Kurt Warner (106), Peyton Manning (105), Aaron Rodgers (104), Carson Palmer (101).
