Raiders in last-second NFL win over Browns

Daniel Carlson connected on a 48-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the visiting Las Vegas Raiders to a 16-14 NFL win over the short-handed Cleveland Browns.

It was the third field goal of the game for Carlson, who hit from 40 14 seconds into the fourth quarter for a 13-7 edge.

But the Browns (7-7) took their first lead of the game when Nick Mullens threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Harrison Bryant with 3 minutes 45 seconds left.

Cleveland had a chance to wrap up the game after Greedy Williams intercepted Derek Carr with 2:47 remaining, but couldn’t gain a first down and had to punt.

Carr led a 41-yard drive in the final 1:50, finding Zay Jones for a 15-yard gain to put Carlson in range for his 31st field goal in 34 attempts this year.

Carr finished 25 of 38 for 236 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Las Vegas (7-7), who stayed in contention for an AFC wildcard spot.

Mullens, starting because Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum were two of 18 Browns inactive due to COVID-19, hit on 20 of 30 passes for 147 yards with a score.

Cleveland (7-7) missed on a chance to take first place in the AFC North.

Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes and the Vikings’ defence took care of the rest as Minnesota continued their playoff push with a 17-9 victory over the hosts Chicago Bears.

Cousins completed 12 of 24 passes for 87 yards – the fewest in a start in his career – and an interception for the Vikings (7-7).

The Vikings have won two straight games following a two-game slide that had them on the brink of being eliminated from playoff contention.
