A pretty grim first quarter considering Jaguars lost running back Maurice Jones-Drew to a foot injury after a single carry.
The Raiders offense has been pretty much contained to a 59-yard Carson Palmer sideline strike to Darrius Heyward-Bey _ his first catch since absorbing a Sept. 23 concussion. The Raiders stalled inside the 10, however, with Sebastian Janikowski kicking a 21-yard field goal.
The Jaguars drove 80 yards for a touchdown, the last 42 coming on a Blaine Gabbert to Cecil Shorts III touchdown behind a blown coverage, with Phillip Adams and Tyvon Branch having some sort of communication breakdown. The Jaguars converted a third-and-6 play when Oakland’s best tackler, missed a tackle against Rashad Jennings before the stake on a play that wen tfo r13 yards for a first down.
Jacksonville opens the second quarter with a first-and-10 at its own 35 with the help of 5-yard penalties on Christo Bilukidi and Matt Shaughnessy.
