Some of the marks Raiders players set in their big win Sunday over the Ravens.

When a franchise has struggled as long as the Raiders have over the past 13 years, you find that when they have a big win, it tends to offer a few things they haven't done in a while. Here are a few of their superlatives from this one.

This win ends a 4-game win streak by the Ravens over the Raiders. The Raiders hadn't beaten them since 2003. Oddly, despite the Ravens having a 6-2 advantage in the series, the Raiders now have a 2-1 record against them in Oakland.

The Raiders put up 37 points in the game. It's the most the Raiders have scored in a game since December 19, 2010 when they beat Denver 39-23. It's also the most points they've ever scored on the Ravens.

Derek Carr's 351-yard performance marks his second career 300-yard passing game, making him the first Raiders player with more than one 300-yard game through his first three NFL seasons.

Amari Cooper (109 yards) and Michael Crabtree (111 yards) became the first pair of Raiders receivers to each post 100 receiving yards in a game since Darrius Heyward-Bey (130 yards) and Denarius Moore (rookie, 101 yards) did so on Jan. 1, 2012 against San Diego.

Not only did Coop and Crabs have 100-yard games, but they both also each scored touchdowns. That hasn't happened since December 31, 2005 (Randy Moss and Doug Gabriel).

Cooper had seven catches in this game. He is the first rookie in franchise history to catch at least five passes in each of his first two NFL games.

This is Crabtree's first 100-yard receiving game since Dec. 23, 2013 at Atlanta.

Cooper's 68-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter was the longest touchdown reception by a Raiders rookie since Louis Murphy caught a 75-yard touchdown from Bruce Gradkowski, Dec. 6, 2009 at Pittsburgh.

TJ Carrie's forced fumble on the Raven's first play of the game was the Raiders' first takeaway of the season. It led to a 23-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski, to give the Raiders an early 10-0 lead.

Sebastian Janikowski was 3-for-3 on field goals in the game (23, 46, 48). His third field goal moved him past Norm Johnson (366) for sole possession of 12th place on the NFL's all-time field goals list.

Janikowski's 13 total points on the day moved him ahead of Al Del Greco (1,584) into 16th place on the NFL's all-time scoring list.

Marquette King punted just twice in the game. His second punt went for a career-long 70 yards and pinned the Ravens inside their own 10-yard line.
