Carson Palmer Week 13 Fantasy Update

The Oakland Raiders had one of their worst games of the 2011 season on Sunday when they were handed a 34-14 loss against the Miami Dolphins. In actuality, the score only got that close at the end, as Oakland was completely shut out until the second half of the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Carson Palmer was the lone offensive force for the Raiders, outshining his opposite number in Miami's Matt Moore as the leading passer of the game.

Palmer finished the game going 20-for-41 with 273 passing yards, an interception and Oakland's only two touchdowns of the game. The fourth quarter touchdown passes were a 40-yarder to T.J. Houshmandzadeh and a short pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey.

Although Palmer was one of the bright lights for Oakland, nothing about the game was particularly glimmering. Palmer's 20-for-41 record in the game should be noted, as the Raiders only converted two third downs all day. Heading into Green Bay next week, that type of performance will hardly wash against a Packers team that can smell blood.
