Recap: Oakland vs. San Francisco

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Derek Carr had three touchdown passes to lead the Oakland Raiders in a 24-13 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Carr went 22-for-28 for 254 yards with touchdown passes to Donald Penn, Marcel Reece and Mychal Rivera as the Raiders (2-11) bounced back from a 52-0 loss at St. Louis last week.

"We stayed together as a team is supposed to," Carr said. "We came out here and fought."

Colin Kaepernick went 18-for-33 for 174 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the 49ers (7-6), who have dropped two straight to deal a hard blow to their postseason hopes.

"We didn't play well enough to win," San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh said. "The Raiders made plays and got stops in crucial situations."

Trailing by three points, the Raiders took the lead for good with 4:09 to play in the third quarter as Carr found Reece for a 9-yard score and a 17-13 lead. The big play of the 80-yard drive was a 27-yard catch by Rivera.

A three-and-out from San Francisco saw Oakland get the ball back at its own 20, and the team was able to pad its lead.

Facing a 3rd-and-8, Carr and Rivera hooked up for a 27-yard gain down to the San Francisco 29. Two more first downs saw the team get down to the 49ers' 3, and Carr eventually finding Rivera for a 24-13 lead with 10:39 to play.

San Francisco got into scoring position and Phil Dawson lined up for a 47-yard attempt, but he missed it to the left with 5:07 to play.

Oakland was quickly forced to a three-and-out, but Kaepernick was picked off by Charles Woodson to seal the victory for the Raiders.

The first snap of the game saw Kaepernick picked off by Brandian Ross as Oakland took over just short of midfield.

Oakland managed to gain just 12 yards, but that was enough for Sebastian Janikowski to calmly drill a 57-yard field goal to give his team an early 3-0 lead.

After an exchange of punts, the 49ers started a drive at their own 40 and Vernon Davis had a catch-and-run for 23 yards on the first snap. Facing a 1st- and-goal at the Oakland 8, Kaepernick tossed a soft pass to his left and Bruce Miller ran it in for a 7-3 lead with under two minutes to play in the first quarter.

The Raiders answered on their ensuing touch with an 11-play, 74-yard drive that saw Carr hit Vincent Brown for 20 yards on a 3rd-and-9. Facing a 3rd-and- goal at the 3, Carr rolled out to his left and hit left tackle Penn, who checked in as an eligible receiver, for a 10-7 lead with 10:45 to play in the half.

San Francisco had a 54-yard field goal from Dawson on its next possession nullified due to a holding call, but was able to get a 52-yarder from Dawson with just one second left in the first half to send the game into the locker room tied at 10-10.

The Niners first touch of the second half bore fruit, as a nine-play, 44-yard drive was capped on a 20-yard field goal from Dawson for a 13-10 lead with 8:34 left in the third. Bruce Ellington's 23-yard punt return gave the team good field position to start the drive.

Game Notes

This was Oakland's first home win over the 49ers since 1991, when the team was based in Los Angeles ... The Niners had won three straight over the Raiders coming in ... Rivera finished the game with seven catches for 109 yards ... Oakland plays at Kansas City next Sunday ... San Francisco plays in Seattle next Sunday ... Oakland controlled the ball for almost 33 minutes, and outgained San Francisco, 330-248.
