Final: Raiders 26, Jaguars 23, OT

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, October 21st, 2012 at 5:33 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Beat a hasty retreat downstairs before I got a chance to post this . . .

Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 40-yard field goal following a fumble recovery by Joselio Hanson as the Raiders escaped with a 26-23 overtime win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Oakland, 2-4, trailed 20-6 entering the third quarter and generally had itself to blame for the Jaguars being in position to win.

Jacksonville won the toss, got the first possession in overtime, and wide receiver Cecil Shorts III was stripped by Lamarr Houston on a short gain on third-and-21.

After quarterback Carson Palmer kneeled on the ball one time, Janikowski kicked the game winner to send the Jaguars to their fourth loss in five defeats.

Palmer had tied the game with a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter to cap a 58-yard drive.

It came after Oakland had considered sending the field goal team on the field with 3:53 remaining to cut Jacksonville’s lead to 23-19.

Oakland thought better of it, called time out _ it was their last time out and came back with a an end zone heave from Palmer to Darrius Heyward-Bey. He was fouled by Aaron Ross in the end zone, giving the Raiders the ball at the 1-yard line.

Following a Jacksonville penalty for too many men on the field, putting the ball at the half-yard line, Palmer snuck in for the score to tie the game 23-23.

It capped a 58-yard drive, with the big play an 18-yard strike to a leaping Streater on third-and-6 to 25-yard line.

The Raiders forced to punts before the end of regulation without letting Josh Scobee within field goal distance, punted once themselves, and took over at their own 12 with 29 seconds left.

Following a 13-yard run by Darren McFadden to the Raiders 31-yard line, Palmer spiked the ball with 11 seconds left and found Streater for a 23 yards to the 46-yard line. Sebastian Janikowski was short on a 64-yard field goal attempt as time expired.

The Raiders pulled within a score on a 31-yard field goal by Janikowski, with Oakland penalizing itself out of the red zone and settling for a field goal with 6:52 left in the fourth quarter.

After the Jaguars’ first score on an 80-yard drive _ and a 42-yard touchdown pass from Gabbert to Shorts on a blown coverage _ the Raiders essentially gift-wrapped the next 16 points, with Jacksonville needing only 33 net yards to get to 23 points.

A 5-yard Rashad Jennings run capped a 16-yard drive courtesy of a muffed punt on a fair catch by Phillip Adams.

A 50-yard field goal by Scobee resulted from a desperation back-handed attempt at a shovel pass while going down from Palmer, with Derek Cox getting the interception.

A 40-yard field goal by Scobee came on a 4-yard drive courtesy of a 28-yard punt return by Mike Spurlock, setting up a 17-yard drive to the Raiders 22.

Finally, a 45-yard field goal by Scobee resulted from a sack-fumble of Palmer, the Jaguars recovering at the Oakland 24.

    I’m frustrated as heck… But happy too. As mad as that game made me, I couldn’t help but jump up and raise my fists sky high when the fg sailed through.

    I don’t see how some of you can be a true fan and honestly be okay with going out and losing for a draft pick. Even in our worst years, that final game of the season, I wanted one thing: A win.

  • Raider E

    This win does one thing…..Shut off the conspiracy theorists.

    When a team is 1-7, I would agree to lose for a better pick. Much like the Colt’s did a year ago.

    Eastoak-why aren’t you upset Cable wasn’t rehired?We were losers for 8 years before he became coach.As HC he brought the team up to 8-8.Didn’t he deserve another year?

    Pathetic showing.

    I dont want to hear any crap about a “win being a win”.

    We still tried to lose that game.

    That game didnt feel like a win. Just barely better than a loss.

    All I can say is, build on it. Beat KC and we are just a game away from .500 and just a game away from a 3 game win streak.

    After a 3 game win streak, anything is possible.

    But our O-Line has to pull their heads out of there a55es. Meyers cant block. Briesel sucks. Palmer keeps getting killed. Veldheer is unrecognizable. Just plain pathetic.

    I’ll watch next week. But only half heartedly like I did this week. This team is consistently inconsistent and it is beyond frustrating. It’s not scheme, its not playcalling, its not coaching. It’s execution. Im tired of watching guys drop balls that I would catch. Counting the preseason, I think we’ve dropped 6 TDs in the endzone to date. Just pathetic.

    we wont be overconfident going into KC , which we might have been with a blowout. this was the biggest comeback win in a long time. thats a good sign..

    Moore almost cost us the game by not getting that first down, though. Any other team would but the Jags would have got in field goal range after that.

  • Raider E

    We are going the right direction. We are not a playoff team, but we can get it together and give em a run for their money.

  • realtruraider

    Hue is the reason Cable went 8-8 PERIOD

  • http:///Albert_B_Paine Albert Bigelow Paine

    This team is still struggling with a new system. You never know when the offense might start clicking. If they can win next week, you never know what might happen. Denver is playing the Saints next week, they could lose that game.

  • mcfadden20.

    RaidO is a pathetic troll and he keeps coming back for more whooping

  • bigsnow81

    The defense is stopping the run. Win the next two games and then lets see if the team is for real verse the Ravens and Saints.

    maybe the comeback springboards us to 500 but with knapp at the helm it seems far fetched unless DA gets him in line since he hired him. this will tell a lot about DA.

    I will always root for a win, don’t get me wrong. I will never watch a game wanting my team to lose. Although, at 1-7 your pretty much eliminated from the playoffs. So, winning just messes up your draft position.

    The way they played in the 1st half they would be lucky to beat a HS team, but that schit isn’t goin to happen every week, that was just horrible football, we tried to give them the game but they didn’t want to take it.

    Alias is here in full force but maybe some of us can continue to talk positively about the Raiders.Everyone says Jacksonville is the worst team in the league and if we would have lost we would have been the worst.Haven’t they already won a game?Or is it possible that the saying on any given Sunday is actually true?

    to me cable just didnt have that IT facor or swagger that Hue had and I credit Hue for bringing our O back to respectability as the OC then HC. Cable was striped of playcalling and it was given to Hue and it paid immediate dividends.

  • RaiderRetribution

    I wonder Vehldeer no longer having Wisniewski playing beside him is effecting his play; there was definitely a lack of coordination between Vehldeer and Carlisle on that sack on Palmer with a fumble.
