Jamarcus Russel Finished With A 149.1 QB Rating

Jamarcus Russel Finished With A 149.1 QB Rating

As the Oakland Raiders went into the 2nd half ahead 10-3 this Sunday, the Raiders had still failed to score an offensive touchdown. The Raiders stretched their scoreless streak to 15 quarters and only took the lead with another spectacular Johnnie Lee Higgins kickoff return.

But as the Raiders came out the 2nd half, they realized that Denver defense is, well, Denver defense. The Raiders came out and shut down Cutler and company and beat the Broncos 31-10 after losing 41-14 in week one.

Fargas pounded out 104 yards on 24 carries while McFadden delivered the finishing blows with 38 yards and 2 touchdown runs. Ashley Lelie returned to Denver posting a big 7 catch 105 yard against his old team including a monster 51 yard catch over two defenders. As for Russell, the former number one pick worked efficiently and led the Raiders down the field on a number of key drives. He finished the day completing 10 of his 11 passes, throwing one touchdown pass to Lelie, and an outstanding 149.1 QB rating.

After a disappointing loss to Miami last week, this Sundays game against Denver brought Raider fans a glimmer of hope. With a healthy quarterback and backfield, the Raiders displayed what talent could do with proper coaching and belief. The Raiders face division rivals in the upcoming weeks and at 3-8 the Raiders look to top their 4-win season from last year.
