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.
