#24 Charles Woodson after intercepting Bills QB Kyle Orton
QB Derek Carr and the offense did enough to take a lead and the defense made sure it stuck. Running Backs Latavius Murray and Marcel Reece gave us some electrifying moments along with Darren McFadden, who it was good to see get pass a few initial tacklers. Receivers Kembrell Thompkins and Andre Holmes pulled in enough passes to give kicker Sebastian Janowski decent field position for 4 of 5 field goals made.
Best news of the day was rumor that the Raiders are about to sign a 1-year contract to play next season at the Oakland Coliseum. Heck, we'll take whatever we can get when it comes to making sure the Raiders stay in Oakland.
After seeing the San Francisco 49ers squander a brilliant 28-7 half-time lead and lose in overtime to the San Diego Chargers yesterday, I can say that today's blue collar Raiders win leaves silver and black football fans with a bright outlook for bay area football. And if you saw rookie LB #52 Kahlil Mack putting hits and pressure on the opposing quarterback today, you'd understand our enthusiasm.
Shout outs to defensive players Antonio Smith, Justin Tuck, T.J. Carrie, Miles Burris, Brendian Ross and Ray Ray Armstrong.
Good Job Soldiers!
