An anemic Oakland passing game came to life just when it had to.
After not creating any offense in the first two series of overtime, Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell hit receiver Javon Walker and tight end Zach Miller for big pass play. It setup a 57-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski with 2:30 to go in overtime. It was an Oakland record for a field goal.
Just when it looked like the game was headed for a 13-13 tie, the Raiders' offense showed unfamiliar life. Will this be the start of something big or was it simply good timing to give a bad team a rare win?
We'll see, but right now, in Oakland, where the Raiders won in overtime for the first time in eight years, it doesn't matter.
Was it a textbook win for Oakland? No, but that's not the point. The Raiders were desperate for good feeling and they left the field feeling fine Sunday for first time since Week 2 in Kansas City.
