Third quarter: Saints 38, Raiders 0

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, August 29th, 2009 at 3:41 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Score

NO_P.J. Hill 11-yard run (Garrett Hartley kicks PAT), 4:40

Notes:

– Quarterback Jeff Garcia completed a 30-yard pass to Louis Murphy to the Saints 20, but the Raiders hurt themselves with another penalty as Paul McQuistan’s hold pushed the ball back to the 26 on second-and-16.

The quarter ended with Garcia taking a big hit on a scramble to the 22, bringing up third-and-12.

– Garcia comes in with 4:40 left in the quarter. Dwindling fan base cheers, as if JaMarcus Russell was somehow for responsible for a Johnnie Lee Higgins drop and a Louis Murphy fumble.

– Oakland’s first-team defense continued to get shredded by New Orleans reserves, with Hill finishing off a 64-yard drive in 11 plays with Hill’s 11-yard run

The drive put the Saints at 404 yards of total offense with 4:40 left in the third quarter.

– Russell let down for the second consecutive series, hitting Murphy for a 56-yard gain, only to have the rookie fumble when he is stripped on the way down by Pierson Prioleau.

– Russell opened the second half for the Raiders, stuck a third-and-12 throw to Johnnie Lee Higgins which would have put the Raiders at the New Orleans 35, and Higgins dropped it, forcing a punt.

    OUR DEFENSE WOULD DO BETTER AT TOUCH FOOTBALL

  • armond

    we shot ourselves in the foot with drops and fumbles. that was the only way to stay in this game. the run blocking isnt as sharp as it needs to be. that wasnt a fumble by dmc either. his knee was down before that ball came out so that hurt. on 1 bright note dhb catches it when we get him the ball and russell looks much better.he only had a couple of bad throws but too many drops. we gotta help that guy.
