OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders already slim playoff hopes all but disappeared when the ball slipped out of Derek Carr’s hands as he was diving toward the goal line for a potential winning touchdown.

“I’m super competitive,” Carr said. “I try not to lose at anything so I had an opportunity to try and win the football game.”
