The road warriors were back at it Sunday afternoon, as the Oakland Raiders won their third-consecutive road game, toppling the Baltimore Ravens 28-27 at M&T Bank Stadium.

Wide receiver Michael Crabtree enjoyed a career day in Sunday's win over the Ravens, hauling in three touchdown passes, but none were more impressive or important than his game-winning score with 2:12 left in the ballgame.

The veteran wideout's touchdown gave the Silver and Black a late lead, and the throw from Carr paired with the reception by Crabtree is this week's Right Combination play presented by State Farm.

Following the touchdown, both Crabtree and Derek Carr broke down the game-winning score.

Pre-snap:

Carr:"They had a cover-4 look to Crab's side. The safety was flat-footed.

Crabtree:"They had the corner playing outside, shaded on me the whole day. 'DC' [Carr] kind of coached me up on that last play. He just told me, 'don't stop running.' I went out there and I executed the play, and the result was a touchdown."

Throwing the ball to Crabtree:

"Crab beat his one-on-one, and took it up the sideline. He made a great play, especially, it's really tight quarters for that kind of route, but he did a good job of dragging that foot, and he scored."

Securing possession and dragging his toe before tumbling out of bounds:

Crabtree:"I credit [wide receivers coach] Rob Moore for that. We toe drag every day. I usually toe tap, and he was like, 'I don't like that, you need to drag it.' I did that for him right there. It was a big play, man.

"Like I said, I'm just grateful to be in this situation. I'm thankful, blessed, and I'm going to keep working. The sky is the limit for this team."
