What a way to end Week 1.

It wasn't the prettiest "Monday Night Football" entrant of all time, but it sure was entertaining as the Raiders came from behind to beat the Ravens 33-27 in overtime. Las Vegas' defense made some huge stops and created turnovers while Derek Carr made just enough plays to snatch victory from Baltimore.

Both teams played well enough to win — and lose — in regulation, but the fourth quarter ended with Baltimore's Justin Tucker (47 yards) and Las Vegas' Daniel Carlson (55) trading field goals. The Raiders won the toss in overtime, setting themselves up for a game-winning touchdown from the jump.

A Las Vegas victory seemed all but certain after a Carr pass to Bryan Edwards was marked downed at the Baltimore 1 after a review. But a quarterback sneak went for nothing, and then on second-and-goal, rookie right tackle Alex Leatherwood was called for a false start. Two plays later, Carr's pass to Willie Snead was intercepted by Ravens corner Anthony Averett — who was in for the injured Marcus Peters — giving the ball to Lamar Jackson and Co.

Unfortunately for the Ravens, Carl Nassib strip-sacked Jackson, giving the ball back to Las Vegas at the Baltimore 27. Two plays later, Carr hit Zay Jones for a 31-yard game winner. Overall, Carr completed 34 of 56 passes for 435 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, including the game-winner. His favorite target on the night was Darren Waller, who caught 10 passes for 105 yards and a score, but six other receivers had multiple receptions. Josh Jacobs rushed 10 times for 34 yards and two touchdowns.

Jackson was efficient through the air, completing 19 of 30 passes for 235 yards and a score; he added 12 carries for 86 rushing yards. But he also fumbled twice, including the one in overtime. Both turnovers resulted in touchdowns for the Raiders. Jackson was the Ravens' leading rusher, though former Raiders back Latavius Murray (10 carries, 28 yards) and Ty'Son Williams (nine carries, 65 yards) scored rushing touchdowns.

All times Eastern

Final (overtime): Raiders 33, Ravens 27

11:55 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, RAIDERS. Carr finds an impossibly wide open Jones for the go-ahead touchdown, and the Raiders win it on the last play of the game! Looks like Humphrey was rubbed by his own guy behind him. What a way to finish off Week 1 of the season.

11:53 p.m.: Horrible clock management there. Delay of game, and the kicking team comes off.

11:53 p.m.: Kenyan Drake gets a yard on first down. Looks like they're setting up field goal positioning.

11:52 p.m.: FUMBLE RECOVERY, RAIDERS. And there's Carl Nassib with the timely strip-sack! He forces Jackson's second fumble of the day. Las Vegas will take over at the Ravens 27.

11:51 p.m.: Johnathan Abram knocks the ball loose from Andrews. Third-and-7 coming up.

11:50 p.m.: Crosby gets 3 on the first-down carry. It's second-and-7 from the 33.

11:49 p.m.: Jackson to Watkins for 10 yards to the 30.

11:48 p.m.: Timeout, Ravens. Coach John Harbaugh got it off in time to avoid the delay of game.

11:48 p.m.: Ravens take over at the 20. Next score wins. Crosby chases Jackson as he rolls right and forces a throw out of bounds.

11:46 p.m.: INTERCEPTION, RAVENS. Oh my goodness. Carr's pass to Willie Snead is high and fast; it goes through his hands, bounces off DeShon Elliott's helmet and into Anthony Averett's hands. Touchback.

11:45 p.m.: The rookie Leatherwood commits a false start. Second-and-goal from just outside the 5.

11:44 p.m.: Timeout, Raiders.

11:42 p.m.: First-and-goal from the 1, coming up.

11:29 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, RAIDERS. Carlson is money! Hits it from 55 and leaves only two seconds on the clock! This game's heading to overtime.

11:29 p.m: Raiders are going for the field goal from here. Looks like a 55-yarder.

11:29 p.m.: Edwards again, this time for 18 yards to the Ravens 37. Only seven seconds left.

11:24 p.m.: Timeout, Raiders (1:29). A first down for Baltimore here guarantees they can kick the game-winning field goal as time expires.

11:23 p.m.: Timeout, Raiders (1:34).

11:22 p.m.: Murray gets 2 yards to make it second-and-8 from the 35.

11:22 p.m.: Timeout, Raiders (1:39).

11:21 p.m.: And now Jackson does what he does so well: He takes advantage of Las Vegas covering the changeup and scrambles for 28 yards to the Raiders 37.

11:17 p.m: Two-minute warning. Ravens have it second-and-10 from their 35. Also have two timeouts.

11:17 p.m.: Jackson to Patrick Picard for a much-needed first down. Baltimore gets a fresh set of downs from its 35.

11:15 p.m.: Ravens get the ball back with 3:44 left. That's a good position to be in for Baltimore.

11:13 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN RAIDERS. Carr hits Waller, who catches the ball at the 3 then spins the rest of the way there. It's 24-24 with 3:44 left.

11:12 p.m.: Carr connects with Waller for 10 yards to get the penalty yardage back. Second-and-goal from the 10. Jacobs, who has scored the Raiders' two touchdowns, is on the sideline.

11:07 p.m.: First-down rush from Drake out to the 37.

11:03 p.m.: Gerald McCoy getting carted off the field. Ngakoue, who's questionable to return with a hamstring injury, is making the sign of the cross on the sideline.

11 p.m.: Jackson hits Watkins for a 49-yard gain. Had his guy against linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, a massive mismatch. Ravens knocking on the door from the Las Vegas 8.

10:59 p.m.: Brown gets 5 yards off the jet sweep on third-and-2. Ravens driving at the 38.

10:57 p.m.: Ravens back at it from their 25.

10:53 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, RAIDERS. One play later, Jacobs slices and dices for a 15-yard touchdown. Excellent vision by him to help make the score 17-17 with 9:18 left in the game.

10:45 p.m.: Jackson to Brown for 13 to the 32.

10:43 p.m.: Carr hits Drake out of the backfield and, to his credit, he gets 21 — not enough for the conversion. Raiders waste the good field position. Ravens take over at their 19 following the punt.

10:43 p.m.: Queen fakes like he's dropping back into coverage then blitzes at the exact right time to sack Carr for a loss of 18. Devious.

10:40 p.m.: Renfrow takes a quick shot after fielding the punt but manages a 7-yard return to the Las Vegas 41.

Third quarter: Ravens 17, Raiders 10

10:37 p.m.: Nothing doing for Jackson there; the Raiders swarm him and Maxx Crosby gets credit for the sack for 5 yards. Ravens will punt on fourth-and-13 at the start of the fourth quarter.

10:36 p.m.: Ravens face third-and-8 from their 30.

10:30 p.m.: TURNOVER ON DOWNS, RAIDERS. Carr throws a yard short to Renfrow on third-and-5 from the Baltimore 17 (good tackle by Humphrey), and then Gruden decides to go for it on fourth down. Jacobs is stopped short after a handoff out of the gun.

10:26 p.m.: Carr attempts to hit Edwards downfield, but misses; Young is called for pass interference, resulting in a 32-yard play, the Raiders' biggest gain of the game.

10:22 p.m.: Carr takes the play action and scrambles left for 4 yards. Slight tap out of bounds by Jaylon Ferguson, but no problem.

10:18 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, RAVENS. Baltimore doesn't come away completely empty-handed, as Justin Tucker sinks a 40-yard field goal to make it 17-10 Ravens with 8:29 left in the third quarter.

10:18 p.m.: Jackson had Williams open but it seems the two were just off the mark. He's 0 for 5 on his last five attempts.

10:17 p.m.: Yannick Ngakoue runs the play down from behind and gets a tackle for loss to make it third-and-5 from the 22.

10:16 p.m.: Jackson scrambles and picks up 11 to the 27. Great downfield jukes on that run, too.

10:12 p.m.: Duvernay fields the 63-yard punt at the 32, but he returns it 30 yards to the Raiders 38. Baltimore's in great position here.

10:11 p.m.: Raiders don't even attempt a pass, just give it to Kenyan Drake for a 1-yard rush to give Cole some room.

10:11 p.m.: And now a delay of game. Raiders going the wrong way.

10:10 p.m.: Carr goes right back to Waller for a 22-yard gain on the underneath route, but it's negated after Edwards is called for offensive pass interference. It's third-and-12 now.

10:09 p.m.: Waller took his eyes off the ball and dropped what would have been a sure first down. Raiders face third-and-9 from the 8 now.

10:05 p.m.: Jackson's third-down attempt is batted and falls incomplete. Timely stop for the Raiders. It looks as if Las Vegas will take over at its 7 after the 49 yard punt from Sam Koch.

10:03 p.m.: Jackson attempts two deep passes on consecutive plays, and both fall incomplete. Trayvon Mullen Jr. is called for illegal hands to the face, however, resulting in a 5-yard penalty and automatic first down. Ravens driving at their 40.

10:01 p.m.: Jackson hits tight end Mark Andrews for a quick strike to the 35; first down.

10 p.m.: Ravens get the ball back and will take over at their 25.
