Washington extended its winning streak to four games and improved to 6-6 with a victory over the Raiders in Las Vegas. Here are four takeaways from the game:

Taylor Heinicke shakes off turnover to lead game-winning drive: The stage was set for Heinicke and the Washington Football Team to seal their fourth straight win with the type of methodical, clock-killing drive Ron Rivera’s squad has made a habit of since the bye week, but it wouldn’t be so easy this time. Clinging to a 14-12 lead midway through the fourth quarter, Washington faced third and four from the Las Vegas 47-yard line. Heinicke took the snap out of the shotgun and stepped up to throw, but defensive end Maxx Crosby hit his arm as he released the ball, which floated into the hands of Raiders cornerback Nate Hobbs.

The Raiders capitalized on the game’s first turnover and took a 15-14 lead on a field goal with 2:22 remaining. Heinicke responded by leading the offense 44 yards on seven plays, including a pair of completions to Adam Humphries. Heinicke caught a break when what should have been a game-clinching interception by Tre’von Moehrig slipped through the Las Vegas defensive back’s hands, but Washington’s quarterback managed to put his team in position to win its fourth straight game on a clutch 48-yard field goal by recently signed kicker Brian Johnson.

Washington starts fast, then stalls: Washington traveled across the country on a short week to face a well-rested Raiders team that last played on Thanksgiving, but the visitors looked plenty fresh on their opening drive. Antonio Gibson ripped off a 22-yard run on the first play from scrimmage to spark a nine-play march that culminated in a leaping, one-handed touchdown grab by tight end Logan Thomas, who suffered a knee injury late in the fourth quarter and did not return.

Heinicke was 5 for 5 for 48 yards on the drive, while Gibson had four carries for 27 yards, including a key conversion on third and short in the red zone after it appeared he would be stopped for a loss. The touchdown was only the second by Washington in the first quarter all season. Washington had the ball for more than 10 minutes and outgained the Raiders 120 yards to 31 in a dominant first quarter but led only 7-0.

Both teams take advantage of penalties: Washington and Las Vegas combined for six punts after Thomas’s first-quarter touchdown, and a Daniel Carlson field goal in the final minute of the first half accounted for the only other points before the break. After the Raiders cut the lead to 7-6 in the third quarter, an illegal block below the waist on Raiders safety Johnathan Abram, who went low to tackle tight end John Bates and took out guard Brandon Scherff’s legs in the process, sparked Washington’s nine-play, 75-yard touchdown drive.

The Raiders answered with a five-play touchdown drive of their own. Las Vegas benefited from a roughing-the-passer penalty on Casey Toohill and a pass-interference penalty on Cole Holcomb in the end zone that set up Josh Jacobs’s one-yard touchdown run.

Defense keeps shorthanded Raiders in check: Washington’s defense, which was fortunate not to face injured tight end Darren Waller, delivered another strong performance against an offense that put up 36 points in an overtime win at Dallas its last time out. The Raiders, who came into the game with a league-best 58 passing plays of at least 20 yards, were limited to two such plays Sunday, both in the second half. Quarterback Derek Carr, who completed 28 of 38 passes for 249 yards, was held without a touchdown pass for only the second time this season.

Washington had no answer for wide receiver Hunter Renfrow, who had a game-high nine catches for 102 yards, but the Raiders converted only two of their eight third-down opportunities. Washington is allowing 17.5 points per game during its four-game winning streak, including 15 in each of the past two weeks.
