OAKLAND _ Safety Michael Huff led a charge that dropped Marcell Shipp in the end zone for a safety as the Raiders took a 22-3 lead against Arizona with 5:44 left in the third quarter.

Huff hit Shipp first, with Terdell Sands following up in the middle of the Oakland line. Moments before, it appeared Tyrone Poole had sacked Matt Leinart in the end zone for a safety, only to have officials rule first contact had occurred inches outside of the end zone.

Arizona’s possession started at the 20-yard-line, with Derrick Burgess getting his second sack of Leinart, putting the Cardinals at the 10.

The 19-point lead is the biggest Raiders lead this season.
