Raiders QB Derek Carr earns first win Thursday vs. Chiefs
The Raiders jumped out to an early lead on the strength of the running game but watched the Chiefs score 17 unanswered points in the late third and early fourth to take the lead. Carr was able to march his team down the field in the waning moments of the game, capping an 80-yard drive with a nine-yard touchdown pass to James Jones with less than two minutes left to put the Raiders back in front. The win snaps a 16-game losing streak for the Oakland franchise. They'll look to make it two in a row when they hit the road to face the Rams in Week 13.

Chiefs' Kevin Vickerson questionable to return

Adrian Peterson: "I won't ever use a switch again'
"I won't ever use a switch again," Peterson said. "There's different situations where a child needs to be disciplined as far as timeout, taking their toys away, making them take a nap. There's so many different ways to discipline your kids."
Peterson added that he would "love to go back and play" for the Vikings, "[b]ut if there's word out that hey, they might release me, then so be it. I would feel good knowing that I've given everything I had in me."
Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter to Peterson that the running back had failed to show remorse for his actions. "Ultimately, I know I'll have my opportunity to sit down with Roger face to face, and I'll be able to say a lot of the same things that I've said to you," Peterson said. "Don't say that I'm not remorseful, because in my statement, I showed that I was remorseful. I regretted everything that took place. I love my child, more than anyone could ever imagine."
The NFL Players Association appealed the decision to suspend Peterson for at least the remainder of the season Thursday morning.
