49ers 21, Raiders 20



SF–Delaney Walker 1-yard pass from Nate Davis (Walker pass from Huard), 14:57

SF_Alex Romero 28-yard field goal, 11:16

SF_Kory Sheets 5-yard run (Romero kicks PAT), 8:54.

Oak_Charlie Frye 14-yard run (Frye pass incomplete), 3:30


Getting in position to head down the field at the two-minute warning . . .

— Raiders take over at 23-yard-line with 2:20 remaining after forcing 49ers three-and-out, but on re-kick following 49ers penalty, Nick Miller fumbles the ball, with Reggie Smith recovering from San Francisco.

The 49ers take over, run one play, and the two-minute warning arrives with San Francisco at the Oakland 26.

— Brandon Myers makes another great catch, this one a 31-yard pass downfield from Frye under traffic to the 22. Frye finds Nick Miller for 14 yards to the 8.

Frye’s 13-yard scramble puts the Raiders at fourth-and-goal at the 1, but coach Tom Cable challenged the call, believing Frye had scored on the play. The successful challenge tacked on another yard and got the Raiders the touchdown.

To Cable’s credit, he went for two, but Frye threw one up for grabs and incomplete on the two-point conversion.

— Frye’s first pass is intercepted by Carlos Thomas, with Davis hitting Jason Hill to the 10-yard line on the first play following the turnover.

The 49ers convert at 8:54 with Sheets taking a toss to the right and scoring from the 5. Sheets has 34 yards on seven carries and the 49ers have rushed for 261.

— The 49ers drive 19 yards in six plays after McKillop interception, with Raiders holding and forcing a 19-yard field goal to tie the core.

— Gradkowski, after perfect 158.3 rating in third quarter (3-for-3, 44 yards, 1 TD), is picked on his first throw of the fourth quarter by Scott McKillop, giving 49ers the ball at the 29.

— Davis capped an 80-yard, 11-play drive with a 1-yard pass to Walker, then found Walker for the two-point conversion to bring the 49ers within 3.

    Jhill,i’m not happy with the run Def. either,but if we score it won’t be that big of a deal because teams will have to abandon it.at least that seems to be the idea behind things.i’m also sure it isn’t acceptable to the coaching staff and will be addressed.the fact is we know that will probably be our weakest link this year but we can’t go out and replace all our players.we’ve done a lot to improve our Off. this year.as the saying goes-Rome wasn’t built in a day.

    Could care less about the score , Jruss and DHB need a little time to get to know each other and how and where DHB likes the ball, hopefully the do a little Berry and Unitas and throw it around after practices. Im out

    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    dogg imma say this one last time. u know it was u cryin over russell end of story. be a man and stop acting like u so above it. i know its hard for u but atleast try. umm 69 yards rushing in the game. the fact that we didnt open alot of holes as they did last week. the whiners did a good job of swarming around the line. didnt u see that? pass protection was okay but we did not cut our backs loose this week.

    dhb is more ready to start than i thought. he commands alot of attention and he gets open pretty often. alot of the experts claim he wasnt a good route runner but it looks like hes doing just fine. now if we could only get him the ball. i dint know what to make of his selection but i can see what they were saying about making his teammates better. now we just need to make him better.

    Yea our Run D looks pretty bad. (the rights side big time) we need to work on that in these last 3 weeks. were almost there. fix our run D and we will be a complete team. JR needs to play catch with DHB for a whole day so he understands his speed and where he wants the ball thrown. our 1st team gave up 3 points which is good considering they ran 157 yards on our 1st and 2nd team. I say speard the ends more and make them run in the middle where we have kelly and waren.then collapse on the with the line backers.
