Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE
Fourth Quarter: A-
The Oakland offense caught fire in the fourth quarter as they fought to overcome an 18 point deficit. They scored three touchdowns in just over 10 minutes and players like Marcel Reece and Brandon Myers had big days.
Reece caught eight passes for 95 yards with a TD while Myers had eight catches himself for 59 yards and two more scores.
Turnovers were the difference, however, as the 3 interceptions thrown by Palmer were too much to overcome.
Third Quarter: D
Without McFadden, the Raiders have had to turn to Mike Goodson and clearly the offense isn't the same. Goodson has only ran the ball twice but he has been effective in the passing game with six receptions for 52 yards.
As a team the Raiders couldn't get anything going until the end of the third quarter. Their first drive of the second half was a three and out while the second resulted in a turnover.
If Oakland is to get back into this game, they must sustain drives and protect the ball, because the defense is giving them no help.
Second Quarter: B
The passing game got going in the second quarter with the touchdown to Streater. Darrius Heyward-Bey also made a highlight reel one-handed catch on a reception that went for 46 yards. It was that play that helped set up the score.
The Raiders' offense did suffer a big blow, however, as McFadden was taken to the locker room with a leg injury. His return to the game is doubtful.
First Quarter: C-
The Raiders ran just 15 offensive plays in the first quarter and weren't able to do much with them, gaining just 42 yards. That's not even three yards per play.
Darren McFadden only had five touches for a total of 20 yards and the Bucs defense swarmed to the ball on every play.
The Raiders will need to get the ball to McFadden in space in this game and Palmer will have to test this Buccaneers secondary with a deep ball to Denarius Moore to capitalize on Tampa Bay's aggressiveness.
