Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson rushed for only 38 yards but racked up 150 yards receiving and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders.

After someone named Josh Doctson then scored on a 52-yard pass from Cousins at the start of the third quarter for a 21-0 Washington lead, a visit to the roulette table at the MGM seemed like the logical next move.

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, NBC. "Our boys showed up and they played some heck of a ball tonight and I can't be more proud of them". Without tight end Jordan Reed in the lineup, Vernon Davis stepped up to fill the void, grabbing a 26-yard pass over the middle, beautifully placed into his outstretched hands, to convert on the first third down, which the Redskins handled 7-of-15 times Sunday night. "You are going to see full-team protests, coaches included".

The entire Raiders football team, other than starting quarterback Derek Carr, sat during the national anthem with their arms linked.

Under pressure all night, Carr was 19 of 31 for 118 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

For as good as the Redskins were on offense, the Raiders were just as bad. Junior Galette and Jonathan Allen combined to take down Carr, before Preston Smith beat left guard Kelechi Osemele for a sack on the next play.

The Oakland Raiders notably began the 2017-18 regular season with an unblemished 2-0 record, thanks to wins over both the Tennessee Titans and New York Jets.

In Week 3, against a Raiders offense that hadn't committed a turnover in its first two games, Washington's defense recorded three takeaways that resulted in 14 points. He also suffered a chest injury in Week 2 and was limited in practice during the week.

Hoyer first threw a 3 year touchdown pass to Trent Taylor to make the scores 41-33, but even then most thought the touchdown was more a consolation prize rather than the start if an wonderful fight back from the 49ers. From the restart the 49ers recovered the onside kick and it looked like they might pull off one of the most wonderful comebacks. Oakland dealt with multiple drops from Cooper, who had just one catch on five targets for six yards, and Michael Crabtree, who had a catch for seven yards. He had great protection, as he was only sacked by Khalil Mack once in the game.
