Raiders back in contention after 21-14 win over Broncos

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) For everything that has gone wrong for Oakland this season, from a four-game losing streak to the defensive coordinator getting fired to the offense regressing, the Raiders somehow find themselves in contention in the mediocre AFC West.

Oakland got a boost Sunday when it eked out a 21-14 win over the Denver Broncos despite losing star receiver Michael Crabtree to an ejection for his role in a brawl and nearly squandering a 21-point lead to a last-place team.

"It's just a lot of relief," said Carr, who threw two TD passes . "And now, we sit where we sit and we know what's ahead of us. It was just a lot of relief getting this win, getting back on the right track, and hopefully we can go on a run."
