Raiders Make It 2 In A Row; Stomp Seattle 33-3
OAKLAND (AP) – Jason Campbell threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns, and Oakland’s defense delivered one of its best performance in years to help the Raiders even their record at the midpoint of the season with a 33-3 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Darren McFadden ran for 111 yards as the Raiders (4-4) reached the .500 mark this late in the season for the first time since 2002.
They did it by finally putting together back-to-back wins, a feat that had eluded them the past two seasons. Oakland had lost its last seven games following a win, being outscored by 17 points per contest. But the Raiders followed up their 59-point offensive outburst in Denver a week ago with a defensive masterpiece against the Seahawks (4-3).
Oakland didn’t allow a first down until more than 27 minutes into the game and gave up just 162 yards of offense, including 47 on the ground.
