– The Raiders had 508 yards of total offense, the most since they gained 520 yards in a 41-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Nov 24, 2002.

– The Raiders had 29 first downs, the most since getting 31 on Nov. 5, 2000 in a 49-31 win over Kansas City.

– Sebastian Janikowski had seven touchbacks, breaking his own record of six in 2002 against Tennessee.

    Us fans get excited because we see a flash, but can we be consistent, i hope so.

  • aig-raiders

    I think DMAC just made the probowl today if he can stay healthy for the rest of the year.

  • djohnnyg

    That was real nice seeing a RB in a Raider uniform make a long, break-away TD like that.

    McFadden has run like a gamebreaker all year.

    I could watch that long TD run over and over.

    Nice to be on the other side of that.

    103. Word Johnny but it was the blocking that sprung alot of it.

    Veldheer dominated from the LT spot in the run game and played well at center when Satele went down. Think they said concusion.

    ALL of it clicked today.

    Richard Seymour even ran over a line judge. It was sweeeet!

    DMAC for AFC Offensive Player of the Week

    ****************************

    Going to be tough to beat out Kenny Britt, but he will garner some votes for sure.

  • Nnamdi21

    94. Oakland had bad plays. Stupid penalties, gave up points, the typical, usual Raider crap.

    But when your scoring TDs it doesn’t hurt the team as much.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Chargers have the #1 rated offense and #1 rated defense, for yards per game.

    LMAO at that one.

  • aig-raiders

    JFB,

    Chargers are losing because of bad coaching. I believe in that firmly. Marty would not be 2-5.

  • Carl Weathers

    When is Henderson gonna be nack? The next 2 games are against run first teams…

    Go Packers! fvck favre!

  • 100PercentRaider

    The Chargers looked pathetic today.They put up nice stats but they do nt have the balls to win games. They lost 2 fumbles because they didnt play to the whistle. They are a mess right now and its about hte leadership. Norv Turner couldnt motivate a fish to swim and Rivers is a whiny punk, that is where they miss LT the most i think

  • DaRayduh

    nfl.com has a poll to vote for todays best game.

    Browns play tricks on champs
    Ravens work OT to beat Bills
    Hall’s four picks lift Redskins
    Steelers edge Dolphins after controversial call
    Patriots hold off Chargers’ frantic rally

    I’ll be writing a letter to roger to let him know how bogus of a poll that is. There was only one best game today, and he needs to be aware of what his flunkys’ are doin over there on the web site.

    Typical media disrespect for the Raiders. When the tv people were talking about the game, all they talked about was how bad denver looked- not a word about how well the raiders played.

  • raidermarty

    Would probably have to go back to that game against the titans in ’02 to remember a game as sweet as this one but this is sweeter because it was against denver. It was just one of those games where we finally got some breaks to go along with a good high energy effort.
    We still have a long way to go but damn it feels good to win a blowout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m going to let bspn and the nflnetwork tv know it was the RAIDERS that made denver look bad. And they did it because the COACHES and PLAYERS fired on all cylinders. And if they don’t like it, I’ll remind them of the score.

  • R8derdiehard

    So Now I ask wich team do we see agianst the SEAHAGS next week!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://raiders.com A.B. Paine III

    R8derdiehard, I think that 49er game had a real impact on this team. I expect to see a good effort against the Seahawks. Raiders 27, Seahawks 17

  • Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    Good day to be a Raider fan.
    1. Defense had a whole different look and feel today, with none of the usual lapses for big gains.
    2. CJ looks like his groin issue is behind him, tight today.
    3. Front line played like a real line today, adjustments went well.
    3a. Campbell doesn’t look so bad when the line blocks and he lets it fly.
    3b. Campbell IS still learning the offense…that’s on the staff!
    3c. Props to the o-line today.
    4. Mitchell showing promise.
    5. Rolando is adjusting from NCAA 3-4 to 4-3 in the big league. Give him time fellas, it seems he is a perfectionist who is afraid to act yet. Rolando, admit it already, its obvious.
    6. DMC should have been pulled earlier, to rest the Hstring.
    7. Props to the D-line today. Did Seymour look like a waste today? No.
    8. Complete team effort against a team that was playing better than 2-4. It is just one game though.
    9. Give JC some slack, our O-line did not block as well in the SF game. We saw the difference today.
    10. Did you see Marshall heckling AT or WITH Cable as time was running out? What did that mean?
    I am sure that was a relief valve blowing in regard to the D.
    Fellas, when the lines, D, or O suck we are quick to bash them. Give them some love this week, they deserve it.

  • Carl Weathers

    Hey Jerry, when was the last time a team scored 59 or more? On the road no less!!!!

  • LT DAN

    What a game! Nice to see it. Hope our injured are back for next week. Wish we could clean up the false starts and offsides penalties.

  • Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    After week 7, I think we need to draft:
    Round 2. OT
    Round 3. DE or OT (best available)(Sheard from PITT should be available)
    Round 4. C (pick 3 and 4 are interchangeable)
    Round 5. WR (6’2″ or bigger)
    Round 6. OG
    Round 7. OG
    By this I mean that these drafts would plug the needs we have today. Of course, free agency and the rest of the season will change that, or not.
    2012 will be a first round pick for Barkley, you can feel Al seething on that. Smart, stud QB from USC, please…Al will trade his first and second to move up for him, believe that.

    Asomugha was a ghost today. What happened?

    its not his fault if the QB avoids him. Nnamdi play affects the game in other ways and allows those balls to get throwin to the other side of the field

  • dcraiderfan

    Not to rain on this parade. We are still bad! A victory like this is good, what happens next week? 59-14 victory, can this team show up the following weeks? This has been strange year thus far. 2 divisional wins, but we are still 3-4. What happened? The Browns knocked off the reining world champions, Norv’s boys beaten by themselves and the Cowgirls from Dallas looked bewilder. I like the victory but are we 1 and done again? Everyone on the team deserves praises all around. But as a fan from DC, like the mess inside the beltway, are we 1 and done? Raiders fan to the end. Celebrate the win for now. Ask who’s going show up this Sunday?
