Raiders-Buccaneers: Breaking down Tampa Bay's 30-24 loss by the numbers

A by-the-numbers look at the Bucs' 30-24 overtime loss to the Raiders:

513

Passing yards for Derek Carr, a Raiders record and the most for an opposing QB against the Bucs; Eli Manning had 510 in the Giants' 41-34 win in 2012.

59

Pass attempts by Carr, third-most by an opponent in Bucs history; Steve Dils of the Vikings had 62 in 1981 and Carson Palmer of the Bengals had 61 in 2012. Carr did not throw an interception.

23

Penalties the Raiders committed, an NFL record.

5

Games, before Sunday, in which a team committed 20 or more penalties. Four of the five lost.

200

Yards the Raiders lost on penalties, the most a team has lost since 1999, when the Titans were penalized for 212 in a 14-11 win over the Ravens.

168

Net passing yards for the Bucs. Since Jameis Winston became the starter, the Bucs have managed fewer than 170 passing yards in just one other game (143 in this season's Week 4 loss to the Broncos).

302

Average passing yards the Raiders had allowed (most in the league) in their previous seven games.

11

Explosive plays the Bucs allowed (explosive plays are passes of 25 or more yards and runs of 10 or more). The Bucs executed two.

6

Explosive plays the Bucs allowed on third or fourth down.

50

Percent of third downs the Raiders converted (6-of-12) in the second half. They were 1-of-6 in the first half.

5-0

Record for the Raiders in games this season that have started at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. From 2012 to 2015, they were 3-17 in such games.
