Daniel Carlson hits GW field goal to give Raiders a win over Cowboys (Video)

For the second game on Thanksgiving, the game came down to a field goal.

The Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys ended regulation all tied up at 33. The Cowboys had the ball first and did nothing. The Raiders got three opportunities to make a game-winning field goal.

The first two didn’t count because the Cowboys were called for offsides, which moved the Raiders up for a 29-yard attempt by Daniel Carlson.

Carlson didn’t miss to send the Cowboys home with a loss.

With the win, the Raiders improved to 6-5 on the season, while the Cowboys dropped to 7-4.
