Final: Bucs 42, Raiders 32

A Raiders defense that had prided itself on preventing big plays was overwhelmed by them Sunday in a 42-32 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday at O.co Coliseum.

Tampa Bay rookie running back Doug Martin, born in Oakland and raised in Stockton, rushed for 265 yards on 21 carries including touchdown runs of 34, 67, 70 and 1-yard.

Martin’s last touchdown put the Bucs up by the final margin with 1:49 to play. It was the second-most yards given up to the Raiders, behind Shawn Alexander’s 35-carry, 266-yard effort in 2001.

Quarterback Josh Freeman added touchdown passes of 25 yards to Vincent Jackson and 4 yards to Mike Williams, both against cornerback Michael Huff.

Jackson also caught a 64-yard pass against Huff preceding his touchdown as the Bucs improved to 4-4.

The Raiders, down 28-10 at the end of the third quarter, closed to within 35-32 on Carson Palmer’s 13-yard pass to Marcel Reece and a two-point conversion pass to Juron Criner with 3:51 left.

The Raiders, 3-5, got the ball back with 2:42 to play, but Palmer’s overthrown pass was intercepted by Ahmad Black and gave the ball back to the Bucs deep in Oakland territory and set up Martin’s game-clinching touchdown.

Oakland played without running back Darren McFadden after he left with a leg injury in the second quarter. McFadden went to the hospital for X-rays, which were negative, and there was no word on his prognosis.

Running back Mike Goodson, who took over for McFadden, also failed to finish with an ankle injury.

Passing on virtually every down to get the Raiders back in the game, Palmer threw touchdown passes of 25 yards to Rod Streater, 4 and 1 yards to tight end Brandon Myers, and the score to Reece.

Palmer completed 39 of 61 passes for 414 yards and had three interceptions to go along with the four touchdowns. He received some boos after a final interception with the Raiders down by 10 with less than two minutes to play.

    Andre Carter with our only sack today.

    Pretty sad that a guy off the street with no camp can outperform our $20 million dollar DT’s

  • 303Raider

    Also, DA made some rookie coach decisions. Knapp called too many long passes when we had the ball towards the end. I know that was working but I would have liked to get some first downs and get at least a FG, try.

    The way he was playing it he must of thought a TD was necessary, which I don’t doubt him with Martin beating us down…..

  • VanHeathen30

    Let’s refrain from using the name Reggie and “Genius” in the same sentence…
    He’s done some good, but he’s also got us some “lemons” off of the free agent pile.
    50% on acquisitions won’t get it done…

    and a black qb won for them,

    dumbass =========== WRONG…YOUR 3 DUMB BABOONS SEYMOUR/KELLY/MCCLAIN LOST THE GAME.

    Did they throw 3 interceptions, Idiot?

    thats what i thought. ========== NO…..YOUR DUMB BABOON WR’S CAN READ A DEFENSE AND RUN THE WRONG ROUTES = PALMERS INT’S YOU STUPID FOOL….LEARN FOOTBALL MORON

  • Just Fire Baby

    Philip Adams, two punt returns for zero yards.

    WTF!!!! Why can’t we get a guy who can return a punt 10 yards?

    We are going on 3 years now with this ish

    Too many haters.

    We learned that Carson is our best offensive player, anyone who is hating on him is an idiot.

    He has a weak OL, no running game, and young WR’s.

    What the hell is up with the OL?

    Reggie inherited Seymour, McLain, and Kelly, not his fault.

    Once he gets a draft,we will see his true genius.

    BTW, we are only 2 games out with 8 left.haters go away…..

    Reggie didnt inherit Spencer,Bartell,Allen,Knapp or a few of those weak olinemen you speak of.

    I bet we play good and keep it real close with BALT. They are beatable and I think this team will keep it close and pull out a 3 point win.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    these dimwits keep pulling their pants down for reggie mccheese…

  • VanHeathen30

    Adams ‘dancing’ with the ball after the catch on punts is ridiculous…
    Goes 3 yards in every direction and ends up at the spot he caught it.
    When was our last TD on a punt return?

    The Goodson injury would be a bummer.

    He is our best RB out of the backfield, and has almost as many yards from scrimmage as Bush does this season (296 to 242)

    Don’t worry, Jones will make you forget about Goodson

    As expected, DMC gets hurt before 1/2 a season is done. I’ve been saying since March that Michael Bush should have been kept. Bad move, Reggie. Bad move.

    Reggie’s “true genius” must also be responsible for the our rushing game going from #2 & #7 the past two years to #30..His “genius” must have also showed that a RB did something against the non Al Davis defense that hasn’t been done for 72 years.

  • fangsraiders

    RIGHT ON SLAYER…YOU SPEAK THE TRUTH TOO !

    Bush wasn’t the answer at RB last year when he had his chance…

    Really? How many rush yards did we have today?Mcfadden couldnt run in the zone scheme 3 years ago when Bush made it look legit. Bush is a much better back then McfaGGen

  • 2romes

    Yes, you hit the nail on the head!!! It simple stuff like this ALLEN and Reggie cannot get corrected that puts the Raiders in the hole right away in games. Tell the returners if they cant get the ball to the twenty yard line do not take it out on kickoffs and on punts one move and go. Don’t ask for anything more until they get comfortable back there.Coach Allen should make that the rule for the next game!!!

    WTF!!!! Why can’t we get a guy who can return a punt 10 yards?

    We are going on 3 years now with this ish

  • Mistic1 Tha Supavillain

    whats up wit it folks?

    The bucs led by josh freeman and doug martin manhandled our beloved raiders. They bludgeoned at beat them at every turn. The bucs are not any where a top team, they are middle of the road at best. They fell asleep at the wheel, as middling teams will do, and let the raiders make a late run. However they did enough end the end to prove that they are a better team than the raiders. The defense is better, the offense is better, and the qb is better.

    The raiders on the other hand continued to prove and hammer home the fact that they still have not met mediocrity, and only struggle against the bottom feeders of the nfl.

    Carson palmer with 3 second half picks also is closer to cementing his dubious distinction as one of the all time sports trade bust. Three and five, barley alive, no super bowl, no validation.

    bush 10 carries 16 yds in todays game. lol..hes averaging 3.7 yds per carry this year. i doubt he would average more than 2-3 yds per carry with our offensive line. my point is he wasnt worth the money he got in chicago. I also dont think he either is a good fit for zbs either.

  • papertiger418

    Mistic1

    The mere fact that you write about this loss with such glee is proof that you are not a Raiders fan. Go somewhere else.

  • manassamauler

    looks like Mcinjured got hurt again. palmer might throw for 5000 yards this year. And I’m glad we have seymour and kelly up front. nothing like paying your Dline 20 mil to give up 250 rush yards to one player at home. should cut seymour and kelly, time for them to start collecting Social security at this point.Looked like the 2004 raider Run D out there. pathetic.

  • manassamauler

    Raiders need an OLINE, a RB, a #1 Corner, a pass rushing DE AND A DT. not too much top ask.
