The Raiders were unable to establish any sort of offensive momentum for most of the first half, but found their groove late in the second quarter after Rod Streater hauled in a 25 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Carson Palmer. His catch capped off a four play, 71 yard drive that took up just 21 seconds of playing time. It was spurred on by a 46 yard reception by Darrius Heyward-Bey.
The Buccaneers, meanwhile, recovered from a slow start to score early in the second quarter on a 20 yard pass from quarterback Josh Freeman to star receiver Vincent Jackson. Freeman is 11-of-19 for 153 yards and a touchdown on the day. Palmer is 13-of-22 for 151 yards and a touchdown of his own.
Oakland has struggled to get a running game going, as Darren McFadden has just 17 yards on seven carries. The Raiders trail the Buccaneers in total offense thus far, 205 to 156 yards.
