Marshawn Lynch Ejected for Pushing Referee After Marcus Peters' Late Hit

An offensive pass interference call on Crabtree on the next play wiped out another touchdown.

Long before going in the direction of the sure-handed Crabtree for the victor and the leaping 6-foot-5 tight end to set it up, Carr and offensive coordinator Todd Downing made a concerted effort to get Cooper involved early, going at the two-time Pro Bowler on Oakland's first offensive play of the game - albeit a pick up of just 12 yards. Oakland still doesn't have an interception and surrendered some humiliating touchdowns to Smith and the Chiefs.

For the man who trademarked the phrase "I'm just here so I won't get fined", Marshawn Lynch is now likely facing a hefty fine and a potential suspension after he was ejected from the Raiders vs. Chiefs game Thursday night for shoving a referee during a brawl between the two teams.

When the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders play a game, emotions are expected to be heightened.

The Chiefs were then called for holding on the ensuing play, after Jared Cook wasn't able to come down with the ball. Kicker Giorgio Tavecchio, who missed a point-after-attempt last week, hit the PAT with no time left on the clock to give the Raiders the win.

The Raiders on Thursday night offered their own trip aboard Space Mountain, the final few twists and turns altogether wacky.

Alex Smith threw for 342 yards and three touchdowns but it wasn't enough for the Chiefs (5-2). Tyreek Hill eclipsed 100 yards receiving in the game and accounted for one of the touchdowns, while rookie running back Kareem Hunt finished with 117 all-purpose yards as well.

As for the Raiders, Lynch's behaviour aside, it was a good day at the office. The Raiders only sacked Smith once, putting last year's top sack leader Khalil Mack at just 4.5 sacks through the first seven games of the National Football League season.

Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper has touchdown catches of 38 and 45 yards, though he also has a big drop.

LONG DRIVE: After Marquette King pinned the Chiefs at their own 1 with a ideal punt early in the second quarter, Kansas City needed little time to turn the momentum.

Oakland also gave up 30 points through the first three quarters. Carr hit Crabtree in the front corner of the end zone to tie it at 30.
