Raiders Beat Giants to Climb into Tie for Division Lead

Crabtree is eligible to return for next week's game against Kansas City but Cooper's return against the Chiefs is more in question.

NY benched Manning earlier in the week, ending his streak of 210 straight regular-season starts, and he spent his first game as a spectator since November 14, 2004, walking around the sideline with no helmet and listening to the play calls with an ear piece.

Mack attack: put on a clinic with a pretty strip-sack of Smith in which he recovered his own forced fumble on a play that began at the Raiders' 4-yard line late in the first half.

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 101 yards with a 51-yard touchdown, Derek Carr threw for 287 yards and a score, and the Oakland Raiders defeated the New York Giants 24-17 at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Sunday.

Fortunately, the vulnerable secondary of the Giants still may leave a few opportunities for Carr to capitalize on.

"I looked at the stats, I said 'Oh, he's still got it, ' " Raiders linebacker NaVorro Bowman said. "I'd try to support all the guys and be ready to play if I was called upon, support Geno, support all the guys, and do what I had to do to". Tight end Clive Walford surpassed his season total of three receptions for 10 yards, by catching four passes for 57 yards.

Johnny Holton hauled in 3-of-7 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Giants.

"Those are some big shoes to fill", Holton said. "That's motivation from a vet, a guy who has been in this league for a long time, just to text us and let us all know to do your thing".

"I did see one of my ex-coaches say he wouldn't want me to be his quarterback. For him to come out and say that shows you how much of a coward he is".
