OAKLAND, Calif. -- A big blown lead, a short week against a rested opponent and a banged-up pinkie for their quarterback.Right now it seems as if nothing can derail the Oakland Raiders.Derek Carr came back from his injury to lead another fourth-quarter comeback and the Raiders won their fifth straight game, beating the Carolina Panthers 35-32 on Sunday.The mood was weve been here before, Carr said. You dont like having been here before. But there was no doubt in my mind we could move the ball and win and score. Theres never a doubt.Carr threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns despite missing a series after the injury, leading the Raiders (9-2) back from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter to clinch their first winning season since 2002.After leading a game-tying drive earlier in the fourth quarter, Carr hit Michael Crabtree on a 49-yard pass on third-and-9 from the 14 to help set up Sebastian Janikowskis 23-yard field goal with 1:45 left that gave Oakland the lead.Cam Newton led the Panthers (4-7) into Oakland territory on the final drive but Greg Olsen dropped a pass on third down that would have put Carolina in field goal range.I just couldnt quite get both my hands up there high enough, and it kind of went off the end of my finger, Olsen said. Id like to have that one back obviously, thats usually a play that I make.Khalil Mack stripped Newton on a fourth-down sack to seal the win.You want to end the game at that point, Mack said. We needed a stop, we needed a stop. That was me.The Panthers scored the first 25 points in the second half after Carr left the game when he hurt his right pinkie while fumbling a snap on the second play from scrimmage in the third quarter.Jonathan Stewart scored on short runs following Carrs fumble and his interception to Thomas Davis when he returned. Newton hit two long touchdown passes, connecting on an 88-yarder to Ted Ginn Jr. and a 44-yarder to Kelvin Benjamin that made it 32-24 early in the fourth quarter.But Carr did what he has done best by leading his team back despite needing a glove on his injured right hand and taking snaps solely out of the shotgun -- including two snaps in victory formation.Carr led a 75-yard drive capped by a 12-yard pass to Clive Walford for his NFL-best 12th tying or go-ahead touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. A 2-point conversion to Seth Roberts tied the game.DC is a competitor, Crabtree said. Hes going to compete in everything so I knew he was going to come back in and do what he had to do. I love that dude and I love my team.BANGED-UP LINE: The Panthers came into the game without two injured starting linemen in center Ryan Kalil and left tackle Michael Oher. Backup center Gino Gradkowski left with a knee injury in the second half and Mack took advantage of guard Trai Turner being forced to play right tackle on the game-sealing sack.GOING FOR 2: After Denico Autry blocked the extra point following Carolinas first TD in the third quarter, coach Ron Rivera went for 2 unsuccessfully after the next two touchdowns. Those missed points kept Oakland down only eight after Benjamins touchdown and the Raiders managed to tie it when they got the 2-point conversion after Walfords score.In retrospect you could say we could keep going with it and keep trying to kick `em, but we started chasing points, we had to try to make that up, Rivera said.MACKS MOMENT: Mack made a big play late in the first half when he fought off a block and leaped to intercept a short pass from Newton. He ran it in 6 yards for his first career touchdown , celebrating with a leap into the Black Hole. He ended the game by extending his sack streak to a career-best six games.CAM THE LOBBYIST: After complaining earlier in the season about a lack of roughing the passer calls going his way, Newton was the beneficiary of a questionable one against Stacy McGee late in the first quarter. That helped jump-start Carolinas offense as Jonathan Stewart ran 47 yards on the next play and Newton finished the drive with a 3-yard run , handing the ball to a young fan wearing a Panthers jersey .---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Vans Shoes Sale . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over .

Theres a story from Mehedi Hasans fledgling first-class career that sums up his enthusiasm to learn. In one of his early matches for Khulna Division, he endured a wicketless session and, after some of the seniors had told him to bowl better, he had disappeared from the dressing room.Moments later, Abdur Razzak who had also left the dressing room to get ready for the next session of play, saw Mehedi bowling in the nets nearby. Before Razzak could say anything, Mehedi asked him: Bhai, can you have a look this way? Am I bowling fine now?The eagerness to absorb every bit of experience around him has remained with Mehedi in his early days in the senior team. Coach Chandika Hathurusingha said that his passion had made him stand out.He is an exceptional talent, said Hathurusingha. He is keen to do well, which is big for me. He has enthusiasm in the game. He is always sitting next to me or the other coaches in the dressing room, listening to every word that we are saying. He is very keen to learn.There was never any doubt in the team managements mind that they had found themselves an exceptional talent - in fact, in an echo of Australias unveiling of Shane Warne on the 1993 Ashes tour, Bangladeshs captain Mushfiqur Rahim admitted that they had deliberately omitted Mehedi for the Afghanistan ODIs last month to keep him as a secret from England.We knew what type of player he is, said Mushfiqur. We wanted him to play against England rather than Afghanistan so that they dont know anything about him.It is all his credit that he did so well. Theres a lot to learn from him, and I know he has the calibre to do well in the future, he said.Mehedi was certainly the surprise package that England couldnt deal with. He picked up 19 wickets in his maiden Test series, beating Enamul Haque jnrs 11-year old record of 18 wickets in two Tests against Zimbabwe in 2004-05 which resulted in Bangladeshs first Test series win.Mehedi was phenomenal in both Tests, starting off with a six-wicket haul at Chittagong on his first day of Test cricket.His maiden Test wicket said big things about Mehedis ability to absorb the information around him. When Mushfiqur told his bowlers to bowl at the stumps on the turning Chitttagong pitch, Mehedi did exactly that, drawing Ben Duckett into a stroke but getting the ball to turn past him sharply.dddddddddddde took six more wickets in that game, while in Dhaka, he ran through England in the first innings by doing a similar job of pitching his offbreaks right up to the batsman at decent pace. He bowled with loop to the left-handers, in particular, but accuracy was his main weapon, especially when armed with the new ball. His arm ball was a constant menace, even though he himself admitted he doesnt know how it came out.His rise to national stardom has been dizzyingly quick, but Mehedi said that after the Under-19 World Cup ended in February this year, he was ready for the call.I always wanted to do well whenever I got the opportunity. I didnt really think it would be this series. It could have been any time in the next year or two. I wanted to come into the national team with a strong mentality so that I could perform well, he said.But it is easy to forget that, even three weeks ago, he was just a first-class cricketer who had graduated from the age-group scene. Almost overnight he seems established alongside the big names of the Bangladesh team, but Mehedi has not stopped learning either.I watch Shakib bhai closely, he is such a brilliant bowler. I try to adopt what he is doing, said Mehedi.It is easy to compare him with offspinners like Sohag Gazi and Naimur Rahman, who also started their Test careers very well. Both faded away fast not only because of their own lack of performance, but also due to Bangladeshs immense dependence on left-arm spin.Mehedi doesnt have trouble with his bowling action, and seems to have a mature approach to his game. It is still early days for him but, even from this point, he shouldnt be judged on his first Test series forever - neither should anyone expect him to be this effective on New Zealands pitches in January.He should be treated more like Mustafizur Rahman than a normal Bangladeshi offspinner. If he is so keen to learn his art, give him a bigger classroom and let him learn his way to the top.
