Sadly, the Oakland Raiders VS. Philadelphia Eagles game was not televised, and I wasn't at the game (i was close to getting tickets, but I couldn't). So, I coldn't visualize this game, in which the Raiders had their first win in the 2009-2010 season at the coliseum.

This means I spent the whole time with my laptop open, Radio on. It was quite a game from those. A well needed win for the Raiders, and a disappointing loss for the Eagles.

An Offensive line without Robert Gallery did a pretty good job, allowing only two sacks. Also allowing a rushing total of 87 yards, and a total Raider rushing of 116 yards.

Meanwhile, the defensive line had 6 sacks. The Defense in a whole was amazing, shutting a great offense from Philadelphia.

JaMarcus Russell had 17 completions, his most of a not-so-good season. He played a good game, and now has his 2nd TD pass of the season. I am very sad saying that after week six, but maybe he'll get better...soon...for permanent. He showed its possible today, and I look forward to seeing how he does next week.

The Eagles totalled to 9 points, 3 David Akers feild goals.

The Raiders had 13 points, but they had chances to get much more. A PI call by the ref on Stanford Routt which Greg Papa questioned to say the least, erased a TD.

Still, this is easily a good win for the Raiders. Next week we have the Jets, and who knows what can happen.
