They were Seahawks beat Eagles 24-14; Raiders beat 49ers 24-13, Broncos beat Bills 24-17 and Rams beat Redskins 24-0. Thus we will recap the Oakland Raiders now 2-11 (4th AFC West) win their second game of the 2014 NFL Season, as they shock the San Francisco 49ers now 7-6 (3rd NFC West) 24-17 at the Oakland County Coliseum in Oakland, California with the game seen of Fox TV.
The Raiders came into this game, having lost last week to the Rams 52-0, and a game they would rather put in their rear view mirror. Then this past Sunday the Raiders put a question mark on the 49ers chances of the 2014 playoffs with their win over San Francisco.
Both teams scored 10 points in the 1st half of the game, then the Raiders score 7 points in the 3rd and 7 points in the 4th quarter, while the Raiders could only muster a FG for 3 points in the 2nd half of the game thus losing to the Raiders 24-13.
The Raiders not only beat the 49ers on the scoreboard, but they also beat them in the Statistics; Oakland managed 19-1st downs on 60 plays for 330 total yards, to SF 18-1st downs on 56 plays for 248 total offensive yards. Oakland passed for 245 yards and rushed for 85 yards, while SF passed for 151 yards and rushed for 97 yards. Oakland had 0 turnovers in the game and possessed the ball for 32:55 minutes, while SF had 2 interceptions and only possessed the ball for 27:05 minutes of the game.
The Oakland defense in the game was superior as the sacked the 49ers QB Kaepernick on 5 occasions in the game, and hassled for the entire game, along with intercepting him twice in the game. Not only did their defense perform well, but their offense had a great day as their QB Carr was 22 of his 28 passes for 3 touchdowns, while amassing some 254 yards, with his best performance of this his rookie season. Also their receiver Rivera who had 109 reception yards for 1 TD on a total of 7 catches in the game.
The tale of the 49ers was laid out as QB Kaepernick was sacked on his 1st offensive play and was sacked on the 49ers last play of the game, and in between his fate was not much better, as he completed only 18 of his 33 pass attempts for a mere 174 yards and only 1 TD in the game, with 2 intercepts and 5 sacks for loss of 23 total yards.
