Rod Streater’s 25-yard touchdown reception from Carson Palmer with 1:20 left in the half kept alive a notable streak and allowed the Raiders to go into halftime with a lead.
The Raiders have scored inside the final two minutes of the first half in every game this season, and none was bigger than Sunday’s score. Trailing 7-3 and sputtering, Palmer hit Darrius Heyward-Bey down the right sideline with a 46-yard strike, a one-handed catch against Eric Wright.
After throwing incomplete twice, Streater beat E.J. Biggers and caught a perfectly thrown sideline pass from Palmer for the touchdown.
The bad news was running back Darren McFadden was out with a leg injury and questionable to return.
Tampa Bay’s Connor Barth missed a 54-yard field goal attempt at the gun.
