↵Damon Huard began the game with a few series of mediocrity before getting an errant pass picked off by Ty Branch. Tyler Thigpen replaced Huard and completed three passes in nine tosses. Beautiful. Sebastian Janikowski believes in Lane Kiffin, and nailed a 56-yarder early. After a Seabass chippie, the Raiders lead 6-0. Everyone still has a job.
