CLEVELAND (AP) - Derek Carr threw two touchdown passes, Latavius Murray rushed for 139 yards and the Oakland Raiders snapped an 11-game road losing streak, beating the Cleveland Browns 27-20 on Sunday.

Carr connected with Andre Holmes and Seth Roberts in the first half and the Raiders (2-1) held off a late Cleveland comeback to win their first road game since Nov. 17, 2013. Oakland also ended a 16-game losing streak in the Eastern time zone, a drought stretching to 2009.

The Browns (1-2) were driving for a tying TD in the final minute, but Charles Woodson intercepted Josh McCown with 38 seconds left. Woodson has at least one pick in each of his 18 NFL seasons.

Carr, who went 0-8 on the road as a rookie in 2014, finished 20 of 32 for 134 yards.

With some fans chanting for Johnny Manziel, McCown passed for 341 yards and was sacked five times.
