GLENDALE, Ariz. – Arizona Cardinals led the fourth quarter from about five minutes a week. Then they could not do anything else.
This gave the Raiders three cracks in return. The first two attempts did not go anywhere, since it was a bad, insulting crime to continue shooting at the time of the crisis.
Does not matter. The infringement took the third time with charm.
Return Derek Carr tried to ease the tension before he had to win the series, saying Rodney Hudson center to "protect him. We will just play to get out."
Raiders played pitch and caught the field. where Daniel Carlson secured a 23-21 victory at State Farm Stadium with a 35-th shot in the pistol.
That's what they expected before starting the final drive. Despite the lack of consistent pressure, Raiders believed the job would end.
"We believed that the outcome was never in doubt," Carr said after his 15th return in the quarter-finals. "There were times in which we believed, but we did not win … They all had it in their eyes, although it was a little different because:" Hey, this is probably our last chance. ""
Carr made it worthwhile.
He finished two short passes to get the first drop, then he scored the ball to stop the clock. Carr saw Marcell Ateman in the next attack to break into the left and, regardless of the status of the new player, send the ball deep.
Ateman made a huge 32-yard catch that had been raider's in the territory of Cardinal – in his NFL debate, no less.
"He made a lot of catches, holding his feet," said Kar. "In order to do it at his first start, his first game, with all that he opposed … he did his job, entered his landmark when I wanted to be there, and that was him. He made great game and got the ball for it. It was great. "

The disadvantage and the heat left Carr just 25 seconds to work. He correctly identified the defensive blanket Seth Roberts, ready for flash, and quickly got the ball to his veteran receivers. Ateman and fellow rookie Saeed Blacknall have blocked their teams well, allowing Roberts to mop 20 meters in the field.
Roberts did not come out of bounds, and Raiders had zero time limits, which means that Kar quickly transferred the ball to set Carlson goal two seconds apart.
Journalists gathered him, giving his team the necessary victory after five consecutive losses.
"It's been a long time," Carlson told reporters. "We were safe, knowing that it would eventually arrive. It felt really good, it's really sweet to help it happen."
