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.

    Huff got abused, RT got abused, DL in general got abused , safeties got abused, receivers left some points on the board , got to correct everything to win

    ———-

    Stop blaming the D-Line for our LB’s missing their gaps.

    Our interior D-Line do a great job of eating up lineman and creating gaps. Our LB’s have to fill those gaps. They routinely dont fill em.

    ——-

    your right, but our D line didn’t pressure Freeman on that long pass completion to Vjax, then thats when our run D broke down

    ———

    Exactly, the complextion of the defense changed after that big play. But getting pressure on the QB in that situation is on the DEs, who by and large, have been missing most of the year.

    We need RT, RG, DEs, and then our WRs need to grow the F up and start making all the plays theyre supposed to make.

    But it all doesnt matter. We should have gone into the half with a 21-7 lead and we didnt. That changes the whole game.

    And the 3rd quarter mystery needs to be front and center. DA cant hide from this issue anymore. IDK what they are doing at halftime but it aint working.

    The stupid OC EMPTIED the backfield

    ————————————————————

    Palmer has to know he can’t hold the ball with the pass protection he has and no back to help out.

    HAS to make the quick read instead of the deep throw.

    Palmer has to play better in end of game situations. No way you can condone TWO game losing ints.
    ******************************************

    Not condoning anything BUT I understnd it. Here’s a guy working with very young WR’s. The reason we came back is we brought in Reece to help him out. He’s busting his ass GIVE HIM SOME HELP with your playcalling. You had 2 t/o’s and 3 mins. use it to give him a breather and collect himself. You could’ve run a few and changed the pressure and coverage totally.

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    Is Palmer reminding anyone else of late 80s Dan Marino? No defense, no running game, and we’re still in it at the end.

    If Hue were still in charge the final would have been 52-48 Bucs. Sure, Huebris could design an offense, but, he would have a defensive coordinator of his choosing still giving up way too many points.

    Hue would have brought somebody in better than tarver who is unproven Hue probably would have gotten someone with more experience like Jack del rio.

    I don’t care if you throw 20 passes, or 60. Quit with the excuse that anyone throwing that many times is going to make bad mistakes. Either you make the throws, or you don’t. And Carson cost us this game because he folded under pressure, like I knew he would. Bring back Jason.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    I knew someone was gonna be dumb enough to say something like this, but I was hoping it wasn’t you, because I don’t feel like going back and forth with you all night about how wrong you r. But I have to address it.

    The first two picks were absolutely on DM. He ran the wrong routes. Just because that Tampa homer Lynch and his half a retard partner didn’t point it out doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Do you even watch football? Have a DVR to take a second look? You should get one. The first pick Moore was supposed to go post and he cut off the route instead and the ball sailed right over his head. The second pick, just the opposite. Palmer is expecting Moore to turn in at the first down marker and DM is just strolling down the field to the post. Do you really think Palmer is gonna miss by 10 yards in a situation like that? No way. He was on all day.

    The 3rd pick? Yea, I’ll put that on Palmer. But down 10 on your own 30 w not timeouts and a minute and a half to go, who really gives a SH1t???

    Idk what Moores problem was today, he’s still the man. But for some reason it just looked like him and Palmer were not on the same page at least 3 or 4 times. Some of those balls dropped harmlessly. 1 got us in trouble. The 2nd lost us the game.

    Would have been the most awesome win ever! Too bad we have no running game, can’t stop the run consistently and can’t gain a yard on special teams. None of that is on Palmer. And honestly, I’m not so sure it’s coaching anymore either (maybe pollard, maybe knapp) but its really about poor execution, injuries an lack of talent.

    And btw, WTF IS W KHALIF BARNES???!!! Anyone EVER see a lineman out for two months for a groin??? WTF! Did he drop a ball or something??? Cause Willie smith sucks huge balls, and he’s gonna get Palmer killed.

    Have to disagree. It’s not the cooks, it’s the ingredients.

    Same players on defense would have netted the same ugly defensive effort.

    KK watch that game again and watch the coverage he’s trying to give his young rec’r a chance but young rec’s do things he doesn’t expect. So when you empty the backfield you’re asking HIM to win it exclusively.

    Palmer is a baller we had no business being in the game and once again he was getting smashed back there and he still just stands tall and makes plays, If only Hue and his staff were still here the Oline wouldnt have regressed and we would be the toast of the AFC AND NOT JUST THE WEST.

Offense is stale because of no running game period. The runner in the raiders scheme now needs to pick up few yards by himself with power alone.

    #179…I’ve been calling for Reece forever. I give Hue credit, he did a great job utilizing him. Knapp, not so much. Reece is so good. He was finally used and that’s only because DMC went out. I don’t get it at all. Frustrating.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Finally utilized Reece?

    He almost has more yards than all of last year already.

    Knapp uses Reece WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than Hue did.

  • Trepadicious Raider

    CP3 cannot wait til we are behind the game to go into the no huddle because it relies on our defense stopping them. Once our run game was stuffed, the team became to reliant on the pass, tho it worked outta the no huddle in the fourth. 19 yards is equivelant to a pretty much dead running game. The no huddle offense works. Whats wrong with this picture? Play calling and scheme.

    The no huddle works, but we don’t use it til its to late.

    The gap run works but we don’t use it.

    Martin rips us apart and we don’t key him.

    This loss hurts.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    This game is 100% on Dennis Allen….

    He made an emotional decision last week to give the team a day off after winning 2 games in a row against teams with a combined record of 2-14….

    Safe to say Coach Allen wishes to be liked by his team….rather than respected…

    This team lost because of a lack of preparation….because of our day off….we had 5 days to prepare for the Bucs…while they had 10….

    Once again, this team has the horses to get the job done….but no Coaches to lead them….

    What is worse is the staff takes no responsibility….NONE….instead they blame the players and their apparent poor tackling…..

    Coaches are to blame for today’s loss!

    End of discussion’
