Cowboys defeated by Raiders, 36 to 33 in overtime on field goal following penalty


After Anthony Brown’s fourth pass interference penalty, Daniel Carlson kicked an extra 29 yard field goal to keep the drive alive. The Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Dallas Cowboys by 36-33.

Carlson scored his fifth field goal after Brown was penalized for interfering with Zay Jones’ third-and-18. Brown received all four interference penalties on third-down incompletions.

With their first victory on Thanksgiving since 1968, the Raiders (6-4) ended a losing streak of three games. They were making their fourth appearance at Thanksgiving since 1968. The Cowboys had suffered two previous losses.

With 1:52 left, Carlson gave Las Vegas the lead 33-30 by scoring a 56-yarder that was a record-breaking effort. Greg Zuerlein made up the difference with a 45-yarder, just 19 seconds after Dallas’ first TD.


Tony Pollard made a 100-yard kickoff recovery for Dallas in quarter three, but was stopped by the 15 minutes to begin overtime. Three-and-out was the Cowboys’ first move, starting at their 7. The Raiders then won the third AFC West victory against the NFC East-leading Cowboys (7-4).

Brown was looking at Jones while Derek Carr made the throw with Las Vegas’ 43 yard line. Dallas won the penalty and was at their 24. The winning kick was scored after Dallas received two penalties for running past the line before snapping.

Each team had season-highs in yards and penalties. Dallas was 14-for-166, while Las Vegas had 14 and 110.

Carr passed for 373 yards including a 56 yard touchdown to DeSean Jackson. Marcus Mariota was able to score a point on a shotgun keeper.

Dallas was without CeeDee Lamb (concussion) or Amari Cooper (COVID-19 protocol), while running back Ezekiel Elliott is still recovering from a right knee injury.

Dak Prescott threw for 209 yards of his 375 yard passing total in the fourth quarter. After trailing by almost two minutes at the beginning, Dalton Schultz’s touchdown of 32 yards and his 2-point conversion throw to the tight end brought the Cowboys within 30 seconds.

Jackson tip-toed successfully on the sideline to open the scoring and drew one of the interference penalties against Brown in the end zone to set up Josh Jacobs’ 1-yard TD.

Sean McKeon had his first career touchdown, a 10-yard catch for the Cowboys’ first points. Elliott was restricted to just nine carries of 25 yards and had a 1-yard touchdown.


Roderic Teamer and Kelvin Joseph, both from Dallas were kicked out of the Raiders after they received personal foul penalties for executing a Las Vegas punt that occurred on the first possession. Field judge Tom Hill sustained a slight cut on his face during the brawl on Raiders sideline.

This was the Cowboys’ second encounter with an opponent in punts. After staying at home, Joseph was able to play the remainder of the game.


Jackson has six career TD catches in his past six seasons with Philadelphia. Five have been at least 56 yards. This includes a 91 yarder for the Eagles in 2010, and an 81 yarder last year.


TE Darren Waller of Raiders was ruled ineligible after he left the game with two injuries to his back. De Carl Nassib, a DE from the Raiders, also suffered a knee injury and did not return to play. CB Brandon Facyson was also out of action.
