End 1st qtr: Raiders 3, Bucs 0

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, November 4th, 2012 at 1:43 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Sebastian Janikowski’s 29-yard fieold goal with 45 seconds left in the quarter accounted for the only scoring.

The Raiders continued their struggles in the red zone after a first-and-goal at the Tampa Bay 10-yard line, with Darren McFadden losing a yard and Carson Palmer throwing incomplete twice.

Lamarr Houston set up the drive by blocking a Connor Barth’s 36-yard field goal with his left hand, catching it out of the air, and returning it 33 yards to the Tampa Bay 44-yard line. A high school running back in Texas, Houston looked it on his return.

The Bucs faced third-and-15 from their own 15 to start the second quarter.

    If Palmer can connect on those routes with either Streater and Criner , we should win those matchups 9/10 times

    Thats why they need to be called more.

    See how much better the Raiders are when they throw the ball downfield, instead of side to side?

  • mcfadden20.

    Now we will let them come back and tie the game

  • Just Fire Baby

    McFadden = can’t count on him

  • RaiderRockstar

    When our WRs catch the ball, we score easily.

    ***

    RB’s & TE’s drop a lot too!

    Calm down , We are calling those plays under Knapp , we didn’t change any thing

  • mcfadden20.

    We didn’t change the OC over night, give Knapp some credit

  • morilla

    Carter is showing up today. Getting good pressures.

  • raidertalk

    That’s Palmer’s game.

  • mcfadden20.

    And thanks to Martin for going back 7 yards and killing more time lmao

    McFadden is, unfortunately, an injury waiting to happen. Another bust but being injury prone isn’t something you can properly scout.

  • raidertalk

    Good pursuit on that one

  • RaidingTexas

    Jesus, Freeman has all day to throw the ball. Just ridiculous.

  • Marks hair

    KK, I hope you and everyone else knows this is a troll. I don’t do families it’s off limits. The powers that be need to put a stop toi this troll crap.

    But they wont because it’s money..

  • mcfadden20.

    Seymour almost got the Int on that one

  • Los Raida Locos

    Palmer > knapp

  • raidertalk

    That what I like to see grass stains on the opposing QB

  • RaiderRockstar

    Bucs looking to tie

  • mcfadden20.

    Letting Freeman step up and make those easy throws

    And that’s exactly why I am decidedly against scheming the offense around him. Why would you do that with a guy who has not made it through a full season once in his career?

  • raidertalk

    Damn hard to defend that one

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    I know Priest

  • RaiderRockstar

    Pat Lee!!

  • mcfadden20.

    As long as they keep hitting freeman , we should get him out in 3rd quarter

  • jackasspuria

    Loved the follow through from Houston on that hit on Freeman. He made sure Freeman felt that pop.

    Lynch is a dummy

  • Que

    I had to come on and see what everyone is saying. Reggie everyday Im so happy to have you. Go raiders and let the chips fall where they may. Get those draft picks and continue building. Futures bright guys im telling you. Win or lose.

  • DaTruth91

    why does it seem that we call Time outs at the wrong time

  • jackasspuria

    If McFadden is out for a prolonged time, we get to truly see if it’s the scheme or player.

    Goodson seems to run better than DMC in the ZBS.

  • Los Raida Locos

    Defense needs to show their teeth.

  • raidertalk

    LEE almost gets another one

  • Dakota

    FU LYNCH HOPE YOUR STUFF ROTTS OFF!

  • mcfadden20.

    Lets get a TO

  • morilla

    I’m actually looking forward to seeing Goodson.

  • RaidingTexas

    When else would he use them? They aren’t getting the ball back this half. Might as well use it here if you think your defense may not be set right for the play.

  • raidertalk

    Whew! false start!!!

  • mcfadden20.

    Lets get another blocked FG

    ———–

    Yep. Finally some DE play.

    Now if we can just get it to be consistent.

  • RaiderRockstar

    McFadden doubtful to return and headed for X-rays on his lower right leg.

    I am too, man. I wouldn’t be surprised if Raider Nation gets a reality check on the whole ZBS-DMac-Knapp issue.

    ^^^^^^^^^

    i disagree, the offense is tired and out of sync

  • raidertalk

    Watch number 83…better to call the timeout make sure the D is in proper position

  • Dakota

    Mitchell can catch!

  • mcfadden20.

    Block it please

  • RaiderRockstar

    54-yard field goal attempt

  • mcfadden20.

    Almost blocked it

    Ya he is, but he’s also a very handsome dummy.
