Ken Blaze- USA TODAY Sports

Browns fans inside FirstEnergy Stadium witnessed a tight game Sunday between Oakland and Cleveland. The Raiders secured a 27-20 win and improved to 2-1 on the season. Quarterback Derek Carr completed 20 of 32 passes for 314 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers.

Ex-Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper became the first Oakland Raider to record back-to-back 100-yard receiving performances since Randy Moss in 2005. He was targeted 11 times, totaling eight catches for 134 yards. Cooper averaged 16.8 yards per reception.

Oakland will travel to Solider Field next week and face the Chicago Bears (0-3).
