Rookie Doug Martin ran for 251 yards and four touchdowns as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Raiders 42-32 in Oakland Sunday.
Sunday, the Oakland Raiders failed to win three in a row for the first time this season. Facing an upstart Tampa Bay Buccaneers team, their first-round draft pick Doug Martin had a career game against the Raiders in his homecoming to the Bay Area.
Rookie Doug Martin rushed for four touchdowns and Ahmad Black intercepted a Carson Palmer pass after Oakland had cut an 18-point deficit to 3 in the fourth quarter and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers held on to beat the Raiders 42-32.
The Raiders have 16 players in the injury list while the Bucs have only four. But Tampa Bay is missing left guard Carl Nicks who is a big part of the Bucs offense. Can the Raiders defense exploit his absence?
