LAS VEGAS — A big contingent of Chicago Bears fans arrived in Las Vegas this weekend, and they made their presence known Sunday at Allegiant Stadium as Raiders quarterback Derek Carr took the snap on fourth-and-5 late in the fourth quarter.

Chants of “Let’s go Bears!” rose above the roar, which grew even louder as Carr threw an incomplete pass.

The Raiders provided plenty of hoopla for the guests at their new stadium, with appearances from Criss Angel and Ludacris. But the Bears provided what the fans came to see — a 20-9 upset victory.

Carr was the NFL’s passing leader through four games, but the Bears defense held the Raiders to just three points through three quarters.

The Raiders finally found the end zone early in the fourth quarter, on Josh Jacobs’ 1-yard touchdown run. But Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack got to Carr on the two-point conversion attempt as the Bears maintained a 14-9 lead.

Without running back David Montgomery, the Bears still were able to produce on the ground against a Raiders rushing defense that has had its issues this season.

Running backs Damien Williams and Khalil Herbert combined to rush for 139 yards, including Williams’ 4-yard touchdown run in the first half.

Rookie quarterback Justin Fields played through a couple of hard hits to complete 12 of 20 passes for 111 yards and his first career touchdown pass, a 2-yarder to Jesper Horsted.

Bears kicker Cairo Santos sealed the victory with two fields goals in the final three minutes, both 46-yarders. Those extended his made field goals streak to 34, the longest active streak in the NFL.
