Third quarter: Bengals 17, Raiders 10

Scoring

Oak–Sebastian Janikowski 52-yard field goal, 9:59.

Cin–Shayne Graham 25-yard field goal, 3:29

Notes:

– Tyvon Branch, Chris Johnson back-to-back stuffs of Bernard Scott to bring up third-and-11. Carson Palmer hits Laveranues Coles to the 36-yard line _ a 40-yard gain _ to end the quarter. Johnson defending, Coles made nice leaping catch.

– Bruce Gradkowski’s third-and-3 pass batted down by Frostee Rucker at line of scrimmage, Raiders go three-and-out following Bengals field goal.

– Raiders open at 27 after holding Bengals with first and goal inside the 5. Raiders get 17 yards on Bengals pass interference, but Dhani Jones hits Michael Bush, forces fumble, Bengals Robert Geathers returns it to the 13-yard line.

Raiders defense holds again, forcing Graham field goal attempt from 25 yards. He makes it after earlier miss.

– Bernard Scott races 61 yards following Janikowski field goal, Bengals get to 6-yard line with third-and-goal and can’t convert. Tyvon Branch breaks up play on second down, Carson Palmer too high to Andre Caldwell. However, Stanford Routt called for roughing the passer _ helmet to helmet, yet.

Routt makes up for it on third and goal, sacking Palmer for 18-yard loss. Graham misses from 37 yards _ nice defensive stand.

– First drive of half, Raiders drove to the Cincinnati 34, Bush stopped for a yard on third-and-5 (conservative call). Janikowski converts field goal attempt from 52 yards.

A 38-yard drive in 10 plays. Some good downhill running, a 7-yard Gradkowski to Darrius Heyward-Bey pass for a first down. Deep left sideline strike to end zone incomplete to DHB, Leon Hall covering. DHB helps break it up.

    amazing what having a competent QB will do for a team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • raidermarty

    YEEAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SnakeStabler

    Murphy already got screwed once this year

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    A hail mary. Russell could have done that, too. Our blitzing and that hail mary is all that has saved us. Russell got gyped!!!

  • SnakeStabler

    Man he didn’t get in raiders might be better off waste some more time off the clock

  • aig

    i dont care if we lose this game. we finally look like we belong in the league for once.

  • Tonio

    Poor Murphy.. .is always getting replayed

  • AbusedByAl

    review… why?? looked good to me

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    Lefty, Russell can’t hurl a hail mary? There was no skill involved with that. Gradkowski just hurled it up there. You guys are the dumbest football fans on the planet, I swear.

  • Sec 124

    its now on tv

  • http://www.us.army.mil/ texguy

    Terrapin look at the stats:

    Russell – 9 starts 2 TD’s
    Grad – 1 start 2 TD’s

    Points is what matters. Russell cannot put the Raiders in position to score points.

  • PaleRaider

    Well, then why hasn’t he done it? Oh, I forgot, the coaching staff sabotaged him with the playbook, never mind he really never bothered to learn the whole thing.

  • SnakeStabler

    Told you this ref was dumb.

  • Terrapin

    Russell made a game winning TD to Murphy vs SD …com’on Lefty …you know better.

    Thanks to blitzing. We could blitz every week and it would reap dividends. We just don’t, and we won’t after this week. We never blitz two weeks straight.

  • Canadian Raider

    the real MR we have figured you out your not a Raider fan your just a punk who hasn been laid. Go get a boyfreind and have some fun douchebag

    MR – It was the 10 plays before the TD that Russell would have been 3 and out.

  • raidermarty

    Game’s on TV now awesome!!!!

  • SnakeStabler

    good point why they let murphy get one on one so close to the goal line

  • RaiderNsuede

  • RaiderMac

    Why is Cable playing for overtime?? Should have gone for 2. What do we have to lose

  • aig

    see mrs….

    what you dont understand is that Grad put the ball where it gives the wR a chance to play the ball…Russell did that last year at the end but he sucked at it this year….now go buy a grad jersey mrs.

    blitzing and luck got the Raiders this one. We won’t blitz next week, and we likely won’t be lucky next week, either. at some point al davis has to build a football team. you can’t bank on wins like this.

  • SnakeStabler

    Can’t believe bengals will get ball back again

    Why didn’t the Raiders make the move earlier?

    Who drafted Russell?

    Why was he starting if he was not even coming prepared to practice?

  • SnakeStabler

    Janos had too long to think about this

    TexGuy, you were ready to shoot yourself 5 minutes ago. Listen to you know. Confident all along, ey? We blitzed, period. We put pressure on the qb we play better. The fumble was luck. Tell me that fumble wasn’t luck. Tell me there was some kind of Raider skill that got that fumble return.

  • Tonio

    eyeah baby !!!!!!!!!!
