Dissecting the Raiders 'ugly' win over the Jags

The Oakland Raiders stole one from the Jacksonville Jaguars, 26-23, in overtime Sunday afternoon, scoring 20 points in the second half with little to no run game to speak of.

Darren McFadden once again disappointed both his fan base and fantasy owners with 53 yards on 19 carried, but Carson Palmer was able to have success through the air by speeding the tempo up. Here's what Levi Damien of Silver and Black Pride had to say about how the Raiders got things going late:

"The first half of this game the Raiders looked like the worst team in football..The second half began the same way the first half ended. The Raiders went three and out, the Jaguars had a big punt return and were able to add to their lead with a field goal. But that's when things began to turn around. Suddenly the Raiders were utilizing the no huddle offense and surprise, surprise, it worked."

With 13 points after the halfway point of the fourth quarter, this new strategy got the Raiders right back into the game. But as Damien points out, the defense deserves some credit for the comeback as well:

"The Jaguars would not convert a single third down in the second half. They scored on a field goal off a fumble when Carson Palmer was strip sacked. But that was it."

Oakland will be looking to carry the momentum from this game into next week's AFC West battle against the Chiefs in Kansas City. For continued Raiders coverage, head on over to Silver and Black Pride.

Jaguars lose Gabbert, Jones-Drew and game

It looked as if the Jacksonville Jaguars would be able to escape with a road victory against the Oakland Raiders, but the team was unable to hold on late in the fourth quarter, losing by the score of 26-23.

That wasn't the only bad news of the day for Jaguars fans, as star running back Maurice Jones-Drew missed nearly the entire game due to an ankle injury. Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert played well, completing 8 of 12 passes for 110 yards and 1 touchdown, but his day was cut short after suffering a shoulder injury towards the end of the first half.

In came backup quarterback Chad Henne, whose performance leaves Adam Stites of SB Nation's Jaguars blog, Big Cat Country, quite frankly disgusted by the lack of competence.

Control might be a nice way to put Henne's grasp on the quarterback spot. Completing just nine-of-20 passes for 73 yards, Henne walked in to multiple sacks and gave the Raiders the opportunity to come back. And come back they did, very slowly and poorly. Had the Jaguars showed any semblance of competency on offense, they could have held off the terrible come back by the Raiders, but they didn't and they couldn't.

Now falling to 1-5 on the season, jt doesn't get any easier for the Jaguars, as the team will head out to Lambeau Field for a showdown against the Green Bay Packers.
