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.

    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?

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

    LOL!

  • Just Fire Baby

    would you say there is a problem with the offensive game plan?

    ***********************************

    Yes, but I would say that is more of a problem defensively.

    We scored 32 points. That’s pretty good.

    We gave up 42 points. That is putrid

    Lmao. You stated a fact? Well one fact I guess, a day off from practice. Didn’t see you state anymore. Just a bunch of whining and conspiracy theories.

    And I’m not making excuses. IM STATING FACT. Players play games. And players lose games. Coaching can help. And coaching can hurt. Maybe that’s worth 1 or 2 wins or losses a year. But it’s execution genius. Ever play the game? I didn’t play in very many games where I could blame the coaches after a loss. I could point to myself. Or I could point to other players or I could point to the other team out performing us. But rarely coaching.

    So I think I’ll stay on this blog, I kinda like it here. Even when in have to deal w whining, conspiracy theorist, untrue and uneducated 49ers fans like yourself. I talk about lack of execution, injuries and lack of talent an you try to turn that into my making excuses for coaching. Your a joke. Haha. You really are.

    Good question.

  • JB

    I’m a Palmer fan but today, he just sucked. He would have made Linda Lovelace proud. For the first 3 quarters the whole team was just simply bad. Palmer was just off on every aspect of his game today. The drops didn’t help either but most of it was on Palmer. The dink & dunks killed us. we only seem effective of 20+ yard plays. There was some excitement at the end of the game but it was over early & we played it that way.

    On the D I can say there were a number of key WHIFFS by our own McCheese. IMO, we should dump this guy as soon as possible. He’s more of a detriment than contributor. There is NO FUTURE for him in Oakland.

  • oakfoshow

    Are you giveing Reggie credit for a 3-5 team? What a stupid little prik!

  • VanHeathen30

    How many 1st downs resulted in 0 or negative yards today?
    Can’t consistently be in 2nd or 3rd and long EVERY POSSESION.
    We have got to find a running game…

  • nycraider

    i respect those opinions about cp3 needs to deliver a win. i realize wins and losses are all that matters. but in palmers defense, his WRs are all average or below average. we have speed , but guys dont go up and make plays.
    our Oline play is sad. Our RBs havent delivered, yet Palmer in spite of all the negatives around him is manging to keep our team competitive. If you were to list offensive players on the raiders who are in the top 50% of the league at their position it would be hard to come up with anyone but Palmer.
    Sadly Dmac injury isnt even a big deal at this point.

    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!

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

    EXECUTION. You really think if you know that, that the coaches don’t too? Your ridiculously arrogant. If you don’t tackle then you can win. If you don’t get to your spots then you watch guys run by you. Your still a joke. Just shut up.

    It was really weird that after the first 3rd quarter TD, the whole stadium, at least from my couch, seemed very out of it. You can hear booing, no cheering, no excitement.

    We were down 4 points. It’s like we paniced at that point.

    can u give us a hint?

  • VanHeathen30

    An OFFENSE that can’t get positive yardage on 1st down is not going to win much…
    Why haven’t we gotten any help for ‘Blind’ Willie Smith is a good question too.
    Guy is routinely holding or straight up getting BEAT!
    Seems we’d help him out with a TE, but always flex guyout if we do…

    I happen to agree with the man below. You gotta beat a good to team to get a day off. Carson and the wide receivers need a lot of work. That’s is why I am fond of tall bodies, jumpers, and big bodies close to the end zone until there is better communication with Palmer and the other reeivers.

    Hell, ANY Consistent positive yardage on the ground would be a step in the right direction.

  • aig-raiders

    ah we lost another game and all the boo birds came out loud and proud on here. We’re 1 game behind my predicted 4-4 at this point in the season. There are a few things we learned today.
    1. Let’s stop force feeding the ball to DMAC. Let’s play like NE or GB and use our passing game to set up our ground game. We proved we can score and score plenty when we go with a more passing focus.
    2. Tommy Kelly and Seymour are overpaid and overrated. Reggie needs to solve their cap hit.
    3. Doug Martin is the real deal. I thought Tampa was stupid for not running him more in the first half. We never really stopped him in the first half. Tampa stopped him by not running him. He is so small and so strong. Dlinemen and LBs were bouncing off of him today. He did things today that DMAC has never done…breaking tackles with LBs.

    So have at it boo birds. We’re going to be fine and start scoring now that we are going to stop force feeding DMAC.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Martin, the 31st pick in April out of Boise State, became the first back since at least 1940 to score on three TD runs of at least 45 yards in one game, according to STATS LLC.

    Well it’s time for Wantai to show up and prove he is asset to our team. I think the passing game will set up the runnign game real well. Reece would do just fine imho. We were moving the ball at will. I prefer a 5-6 dink and dunk vs a -1 yd rush.

    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…..
