The Oakland Raiders broke their losing streak on the East Coast with their win over the Cleveland Browns

The Oakland Raiders went to Cleveland hoping to beat the Browns to create a 2-game winning streak to go along with ending a couple of other major streaks.

The Raiders did come away with the win, defeating the Browns 27-20, subsequently ending the aforementioned streaks. 

With their win, second-year quarterback Derek Carr earned his first win away from O.Co Coliseum. But the Raiders' struggles on the road go further back than last year when Carr took over as the starter. The win also gave the Silver & Black their first win in the Eastern Time zone in 14 games, dating all the way back to the Raiders' win against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 6, 2009. 

The Raiders haven't just struggled in the eastern time zone though. Oakland had also lost their last 11 road games heading into Sunday's game in Cleveland. And if you take into account the Raiders' "home game" last year that was played in London, they lost their last 12 games away from the Coliseum. 

Head coach Jack Del Rio will have a chance to create a new streak when his team takes on the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field next week.
