Final: Bucs 42, Raiders 32

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, November 4th, 2012 at 4:38 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    sounds like a da failure to me…

    ============================================

    No, it was a Seymour, McClain and Kelly failure. All three of which were brought in by Al…

    ========

    I doubt you can blame DA for having the worst 3rd quarter point differential in the league right? Maybe we should have just kept Art II & Tom Walsh

    Why we lost:

    1. Offensive line is worthless trash.
    2. Offensive line is worthless trash.
    3. Offensive line is worthless TRASH.

    Any questions?

    ——————————————————

    Don’t disagree with you that the Oline is garbage, but I do have a Question, Was it the Oline that gave up 250 yards rushing? That lost us the game more than anything imo

  • KRAWFDADD

    Lamar Houston is a beast but we need a speed rusher off the edge so that when he beats his block and is bearing down on that qb he cn accelerate and explode to the qb track him down from behind and get him down on the ground

    TB was better than we were today.At the end,when they needed to pressure Palmer,they did.When we had to stop them,their rookie RB broke off big plays.Their players are better than our players.

    —————–

    Mark Barron, Doug Martin, Lavonte David, Jeremy Zuttah

    us

    Coye Francies, Rolando McClain (half a good series, if any) and many former picks wasted on special teams (like Michael Mitchell), Taiwan Jones (near fumble, some special teams tackles)

    have to get better draft picks that contibute more…we need more than just Burris…but 84 (from Arizona did well on the 2 point conversion)

  • DJ Johnny

    I’m a big Palmer fan as you guys know but he needs to come through some time.

    We can blame the int. against SD on Ford falling down, the one in Atl. was all Palmer and then he ALMOST pulled off the miracle today, but this is getting sooo old now.

    Palmer makes the big comeback and everything is set up nice and then…he throws the KILLER int.

    We can blame it on Streator for not being where he’s supposed to be but at some point Palmer has got to close it out and win a big game like this and be the man despite everything.

    The excuses I make for him are valid i think but i guess i’m just sick of having to make them.

    Does that make sense?

    Dangit, i’m just really disappointed right now.

    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’

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

    Umh no. Discussion not over. 1 practice would have made us tackle and execute blocks and run correct routes? Really? Well I can’t wait for our next Monday night game cause I guess we will be FING PERFECT!!!

    Your talking from your @ss. Or maybe it’s just from pain, I could empathize w that. But we r learning how to win. And we r learning how to finish. And we r learning to NEVER give up. Because any raider fan that will be honest with themselves KNOWS every team since the Gruden years would have packed it in at 35 to 17. They’d be on their cell phones lining up tee times for tomorrow. But not this team.

    They hung in. It still sucks, and there r no moral victories in the NFL. I’m not happy or proud. But I’m getting more optimistic every week. Even w knapp, and I was a huge hater. Idk wtf is going on w the O line, losing Barnes hurt more than everyone thought it would. So maybe that’s coaching. Maybe that’s ZBS. But now we r doing gap blocking which seemed to work last week, but not so much this week. But then again, we only ran it 9 times, and we lost both of our tail backs, so whatever I guess.

    Point is, it’s way more lack of execution, injuries, and lack of talent than coaching. These r grown friggin men for Christ’s sake. Tackle somebody!!!

    And one more thing, did you happen to read the Tampa injury report vs. ours? They had 3 guys listed as probable. That’s it. Not questionables, no doubtfuls. We still don’t have either of our starting corners and r really missing Ford in the slot (Moore was there all day today, maybe that was his problem. Streeter played the Y receiver), and Willie friggin smith should go out and shoot himself and his family. He’s gonna get Palmer killed. Point is, think maybe we could USE a day off? DA doesn’t care if these guys like him, only of they respect them. Half of them won’t even be here in 2013.

  • ChrisinNC

    Yes, the d-line/LBs gave up a ton of inexcusable yards rushing. But our offense can’t keep going 3 and out, 3 and out, 3 and out, constantly punting the ball back for the first 3 quarters expecting our defense to bail them out.

    Taiwan Jones will ball the fk out next week against the 20th ranked run D and be a big part of why we win the game, you heard it here first :)

  • RaiderRetribution

    Freeman had all day today.

    Raiders have the worse pass rush in the NFL.

    We’ve been up against backups everygame, can’t sack a bag of raw eggs.

  • ChrisinNC

    DJ Johnny,

    Me too. This was basically our season today, we’re playing at home against a Bucs team that has NO pass defense, should be able to exploit them, and the offense basically lays a big fat egg for the first 3 quarters. Pisses me off.

  • Plunketthead

    yeah, we almost won the game, and france called….

    they want their surrender monkey back.
    &^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    LOL RaiderSam

    Martin was not to be stopped. He will do that to a few more teams before the year is out.

    5-3 or better over the next 8 games or I will eat a cactus from my front yard

    Wow, you’re fck dumb! Cue the racist insult! Lol

  • http://raiders.com Albert Bigelow Paine

    That Palmer INT sure looked like another miscommunication between him and Streater.

  • nycraider

    35-32 we get the ball n im thinking could this be the day it turns for us? cp3 tremendous effort but seemed like he had nothing left in the end. the lbs had a bad day as did seymour and kelly. on one of martin’s runs he cut back in between kelly and seymour and was off to the races. Down 18 in the 4th and with 2:30 left we have the ball with a chance to win. Wrs made some plays but no one stood out, it really was Cp3 carrying us. that qb sneak on 4th and 2 was amazing.
    in the end we are 3-5 , 1 game out of the wild card. ill keep hoping until i see this team quit. 1st half our D was good O was bad. 2nd half D was bad , O was good. look forward to when both units play well for an entire game.

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

    Makes sense. I wish it were true. But I still don’t put this on him. Something just occurred to me il while I making my last post. DMoore played the slot all day. That’s not his spot. He’s a Y. Streeter played the Y. That’s why Moore looked clueless, and actually caused the first two picks. I’m not making excuses. And I’m sure Palmer an Moore won’t either, but I really think that’s what happened. Should have left Hagen in the slot and used streeter to spell Bey and Moore. May have worked better.

    Did you miss the steelers and Jags games? Heck I could throw in the Falcons game, yes he threw a pick 6 but came right back in the clutch and tied it up, D let us down that game aswell as this game just as much as Palmer did. Football is the ultimate team game and games like this don’t fall on one person what so ever

  • morilla

    Let us remember, Palmer is the ONLY reason we got back in that game. Dude can’t carry the whole team. Yeah, some picks but the receivers were off with him all day. It takes mire than a QB to overcome and win with that deficit. He had over 60 attempts today. Holy crap.

  • papertiger418

    It’s just a shame to see the defense implode same way they did against Miami and Denver. Our lack of consistency on offense contributes to that, but it’s still a shame. I’m not angry, just really disappointed.

    Why are you sweating your ass off? Masterbating to Michael Dukakis pictures or did you want the Raiders to win? Kill yourself!

  • mcthompso

    Our run defense looked like the run defense of 2009. We got gashed. It killed us. Timely interceptions didn’t help.

    We showed fight. This is not a playoff team that we watch every week. Its a team showing some promise, and some struggle. Bad loss- but still heading in the right direction.

    Lost to a good football team today, but looked like an actual NFL team in the process. Knowing what we knew coming into the season about the fallacies of this team: I’m OK with it. Its hard to swallow, but the Raiders are a team rebuilding. We’ve just been able to take games here and there.

  • backstageatapuppetshow

    Shall I include some more FACTS?

    Like this one for example:

    BUCS came into the game running inside (A or B Gap) on 1st Down over 40% of the time….

    Were we prepared?

    You tell me!

    Why would anyone that refers to themself as a puppet, take what they say serious?

    Change of topic: why does Al Michaels hate Al Davis? I read online that it was because he thought Davis was responsible for planting an adultery story in 1997, but that seems silly.

  • Purvisman/Intrepid/ Full Disclosure

    We had 19 yards rushing? Not counting Palmers’ 3 ? Can’t you just feel the excitement of Knapps offense? Oh, I guess not anymore, cause he killed both of our running backs.
    but we’ll stay the course. Listening, JFB? Their guy had 251. I’m not a footbqll guru bbut if one of their guys gets 251 yards and we get 19, would you say there is a problem with the offensive game plan?

  • Just Fire Baby

    We will be 19th in scoring, but the bet was for the season.
