    Daniel Carlson, who had missed what turned out to be a significant extra point in regulation, kicked two field goals in overtime to help secure the 31-28 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Las Vegas.

    Carlson’s first field goal came from 38 yards to give the Raiders a 28-25 lead over Miami to cap the first possession of the extra period.

    Miami had one possession to try to tie or win the game, and the Dolphins survived a fourth-and-20 situation when QB Jacoby Brissett found tight end Mike Gesicki for 27 yards. That set up a tying 50-yard field goal by Miami’s Jason Sanders with 2:49 left.

    But QB Derek Carr needed less than a minute to drive the Raiders back to field goal range with a series highlighted by a 34-yard pass to Bryan Edwards. Carlson then kicked the game-winner from 22 yards.
