Raiders lose Jimmy Garoppolo, still hand Patriots third straight defeat

Jimmy Garoppolo threw a touchdown pass before leaving with a back injury and Daniel Carlson kicked four field goals as the host Las Vegas Raiders defeated the New England Patriots 21-17 on Sunday afternoon.

Garoppolo completed 14 of 22 passes for 162 yards and was intercepted once before Brian Hoyer replaced him to start the second half. Several reports said Garoppolo was taken to a local hospital for further testing.

Hoyer completed 6 of 10 passes for 102 yards as the Raiders (3-3) won their second straight contest after a three-game losing streak. Josh Jacobs ran 25 times for 77 yards for Las Vegas.

The Patriots (1-5) continued to struggle offensively, though they did end a 12-quarter touchdown drought. Mac Jones threw for 200 yards and an interception on 24-for-33 passing.

New England coach Bill Belichick failed for the third consecutive week to join Don Shula and George Halas as the only NFL head coaches to win 300 regular-season games.

On the first possession of the third quarter, former Cowboy Ezekiel Elliott ran 2 yards for his first touchdown with his new team, providing New England with its first touchdown since the second quarter of a 15-10 victory against the New York Jets on Sept. 24.

Elliott’s TD trimmed the Las Vegas lead to 13-10 before Carlson kicked a 30-yard field goal that pushed the lead to six points by the end of the third quarter.

Carlson added his fourth field goal, a 24-yarder, to increase the lead to 19-10 early in the fourth.

Rhamondre Stevenson’s 1-yard touchdown run pulled the Patriots within 19-17 with 3:33 remaining, but Jones was sacked for a safety with 1:47 left.

The Raiders received the opening kickoff and used 16 plays to drive 69 yards, with Carlson kicking a 25-yard field goal that left Las Vegas with a 3-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The hosts extended the lead to 10-0 early in the second when Garoppolo threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jakobi Meyers.

The Patriots closed within 10-3 when Chad Ryland kicked a 43-yard field goal near the midway point of the quarter.

Carlson added a 37-yard field goal that extended the Raiders’ lead to 13-3 at halftime.
