Watch: Raiders Derek Carr off flea flicker throws 38-yard TD to Amari Cooper vs Chiefs

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

After the Chiefs drove for a game opening field goal, the Raiders answered in a big way, going up top for a 38-yard touchdown pass to Amari Cooper.

Carr went to Coop on the first play of the drive for 12 yards. Two plays later, Carr rolled right and threw for Jared Cook on the move for 24 yards. The next play, the Raiders went with some trickeration, going with the flea flicker. Marshawn got the ball, tossed it back to Carr who went up top to Cooper for a 38-yard touchdown just over the left pylon.

It gave the Raiders a 7-3 lead with just over eight minutes left in the first quarter. That’s the best start the Raiders have had in at least a month.

Update: The Chiefs right back down the field to score a touchdown and go back up 10-7. Now we see if that Raiders magic was just an opening drive thing.
