The NFL's Oakland Raiders pulled out a 23-20 overtime win over division-leading Kansas City, putting the Raiders above .500 in November for the first time since Rich Gannon was calling the signals in 2002.
The Raiders trailed by 10 points at the half.
"In the past, a lot of Raiders teams would have folded in a game like today," Oakland offensive lineman Khalif Barnes said. "People would have been like, 'Same old Raiders again.'
"But this team, even when it was down today, it just kept doing what it needed to do on offense and defense and special teams. We just kept playing."
SI.com's Don Banks in his Snap Judgments says this victory against an improved Kansas City squad could be a turning point for Oakland as the team is now just half a game behind the Chiefs in the AFC West. The Raiders have won three in a row and are unbeaten within the division, but can they keep up the momentum?
