Daniel Carlson converted a 33-yard field goal Sunday as time expired, lifting the Las Vegas Raiders to a 23-20 win over the host Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts (9-7) tied the score on Michael Badgley's 41-yard field goal with 1:56 left, but Las Vegas (9-7) drove 60 yards in 10 plays to set up Carlson's second game-winner during its three-game winning streak that's kept its AFC playoff hopes alive.

The big play on the winning drive was Derek Carr's 24-yard completion to Hunter Renfrow that moved the ball to the Indianapolis 24-yard line. Three Josh Jacobs runs ran the clock down to two seconds, setting the stage for Carlson.

Carr completed 24 of 31 passes for 255 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, while Zay Jones caught eight passes for 120 yards. The Raiders outgained the Colts 326-262.

NFL rushing leader Jonathan Taylor did his part for Indianapolis with 108 yards and a touchdown in 20 carries. Quarterback Carson Wentz, who was released out of COVID-19 protocol on Saturday and formally cleared to play on Sunday, hit 16 of 27 passes for 148 yards and a 45-yard touchdown to T.Y. Hilton in the third quarter to give the Colts a 17-13 lead.

Las Vegas controlled most of the first half, starting with a 12-play, 75-yard drive to begin the game that chewed up 7:09 of clock. Jacobs capped it with a 2-yard run.

Carlson increased the lead to 10-0 just 48 seconds into the second quarter with a 47-yard field goal, seven plays after a 41-yard punt return by Renfrow set the Raiders up at the Indianapolis 35.

Badgley converted from 46 yards away with 10:07 left in the first half to get the Colts on the board, but Las Vegas restored a 10-point lead when Carlson drilled a 44-yard field goal with 1:47 left.

However, Indianapolis worked its way into contention with a 60-yard drive that culminated with Taylor's 1-yard run with one second on the clock, slicing its deficit to 13-10.
