MARTIN WAS UNSTOPPABLE AGAINST THE RAIDERS
Wed, 07 Nov 2012 01:30 AM EST

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie RB Doug Martin celebrated his Northern California homecoming with a record-setting day Sunday against the Raiders at the O.co Coliseum.

Martin rushed for a team-record 251 yards and 4 touchdowns on 25 carries, leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 42-32 victory over the Raiders He broke James Wilder’s record of 219 yards that had stood since 1983.

Martin scored on runs of 45 and 67 yards in the 3rd quarter and 70 yards and 1 yard in the 4th, and the Buccaneers roared back from a 10-7 halftime deficit for a big win.

The Bucs improved to 4-4, winning for the 3rd time in their past 4 games.

The Raiders fell to 3-5 and lost RB Darren McFadden to an ankle injury midway through the 2nd quarter.

Oakland coach Dennis Allen announced X-rays on McFadden’s ankle were negative, but he was not sure the limits of the injury or whether McFadden would be available to play next week against the Ravens in Baltimore.

Raiders QB Carson Palmer completed 39 of 61 passes for 414 yards and 4 touchdowns, but he was intercepted 3 times.

“Clearly, to come back and then to not finish a team, it was difficult,” Palmer asserted. “But we fought, showed lots of heart, but did not make enough plays when it was all said and done.” Scores

The Raiders waged an furious late comeback, beating much of a 28-10 3rd quarter deficit to pull inside 35-32 with 3:51 left to play on Palmer’s 13-yard touchdown pass to fullback Marcel Reece and 2-point pass to Juron Criner.

But after the Raiders’ defense forced a punt, Bucs safety Ahmad Black intercepted a Palmer misfire and returned 34 yards to the Oakland 22. Martin’s 1-yard touchdown run increased the Bucs’ lead directly to 42-32 with 1:49 remaining.

“Mistakes like that you can’t overcome, and you cannot make, and me being the quarterback, you cannot do that,” Palmer claimed. “I can’t throw that ball. You simply need to take a sack sometimes if things are off of the same page and come back the next play.”

Buccaneers free safety Ronde Barber credited Palmer for making the game closer than “it probably should have been” down the stretch.

“I think we knew coming into this game how good Carson had been playing in the 2-minute drill,” Barber said. “They were basically in it for 20 minutes, 20 minutes of clock time, just made it troublesome. We just wanted to make a play or two with all that drop-back pass they were doing. He just made some good throws. He’s a good player. He’s been around a long while. He comprehends how to handle that kind of player, but at the end of the day, we came up with 2 turnovers in their last 2 possessions, and that ultimately won the game.”

The Buccaneers trailed 10-7 at halftime but quickly moved back ahead early in the 3rd quarter when Martin broke loose for a 45-yard touchdown run. Martin shot over left guard, angled towards the left sideline and outran Raiders safeties Matt Giordano and Tyvon Branch, putting Tampa Bay ahead 14-10 with 12:09 left in the 3rd.
