It was coming down to the wire for several milestones and records by Raiders players heading into their season finale against the Chiefs. So, how'd they do? Let's see...

Derek Carr

4000-yards passing

He entered the game with 3,797 yards passing on the season. Meaning all he needed were 207 yards to reach 4000.

Did he reach it? No

He passed for 194 yards in the game to finish just short of the 4k mark. However, his final yards total of 3,987 yards is third all time for the Raiders behind Rich Gannon's 4689 (2002) and Carson Palmer's 4018 (2012).

TD passes in first two NFL seasons

Carr came into the game tied for second all-time in touchdown passes (52) with Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson. One more and he would take sole possession of the second spot behind only Dan Mario (68).

Did he reach it? Yes

Carr threw a touchdown pass late in the game to Michael Crabtree from 15 yards out to reach 53 touchdown passes over his first two seasons

Franchise single season TD passes

Carr came into the game with 31 touchdown passes on the season. He needed 3 touchdown passes to tie the franchise record (34) set by Daryle Lamonica in 1969.

Did he reach it? No

Carr's one touchdown pass gave him 32 touchdown passes this season. Still, second place is not too shabby.

Completions over first two NFL seasons

Carr needed just six completions to set the new record for most completions over the first two seasons.

Did he reach it? Yes

Carr completed 21 passes in the game to give him 698 completions over his first two seasons. He moves ahead of Andrew Luck (682) who previously held the mark.

Latavius Murray

AFC rushing title

Early in the day, Jets running back Chris Ivory ran for 89 yards to reach 1070 rushing yards and take the lead in the AFC in rushing. Latavius Murray, sitting at 1035, would need 36 yards to take it back.

Did he reach it? No

Murray had just 31 yards rushing in the game to finish the season with 1066 yards -- second in the AFC in rushing and sixth in the NFL.

Khalil Mack

Franchise single-season sack record

Khalil Mack had 15.0 sacks in the season coming in, which is one short of tying the Raiders franchise record of 16.0 sacks in a season.

Did he reach it? No

Mack didn't have a sack in the game and finishes the season with 15.0 sacks. That is third in franchise history.

NFL sack title

Coming into today, Mack's 15.0 sacks led the NFL, just ahead of JJ Watt's 14.5 sacks.

Did he reach it? No

Watt had an impressive 3.0 sacks Sunday to re-take the sack lead. That meant Mack would need 2.5 sacks to match him. He had no sacks and loses the sack title in the final week of the season.
