Raiders let Drew Brees throw for 400 yards, but stunned the Saints with a two-point conversion

A Herculean performance by Brees was washed out by a gutsy play call.

This is either the start of something great in Oakland or a simple aberration from the Raiders norm. Which ever it is, the two-point conversion to send the Saints home empty handed was a special one.

Derek Carr and the Raiders overcame a 14-point, second-half deficit and a 424-yard, four-touchdown performance by Drew Brees to beat the Saints 35-34 on an incredibly gutsy two-point conversion.

Carr lobbed a beautiful ball to Michael Crabtree with just 47 seconds left for the winning points.

Carr completed 24-of-38 passes with 319 yards and one touchdown, while Crabtree finished with seven catches for 87 yards.
