Raiders Set NFL Record For Penalties, Still Win
The Oakland Raiders had a rough day on Sunday (Oct. 30), racking up 23 penalties, an NFL record.
Despite the mark, the Raiders pulled out a 30-24 win in overtime against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On the day, the penalties accounted for 200 yards, which is the third-most all time for yards penalized in one game.
Individually, quarterback Derek Carr had a huge day himself, passing for 513 passing, a franchise record, previously held by Cotton Davidson with 427 pass yards on Oct. 25, 1964.
Carr also tied Phil Simms for 10th all time in single-game yardage.
The Raiders currently sit atop the AFC West with a 6-2 record at the midpoint of their season.
