Raiders hang on after losing QB

OAKLAND, Calif. — A day that began with a tribute to late owner Al Davis ended with questions about the Raiders' future following a serious injury to starting quarterback Jason Campbell.

Oakland overcame Campbell's broken collarbone thanks to Jacoby Ford's 101-yard kickoff return and Kevin Boss' 35-yard touchdown catch from punter Shane Lechler on a fake field goal.

"This football team will be fine," coach Hue Jackson said. "This team is a little bit more resilient than everyone thinks they are."

The Raiders showed that after Campbell was knocked out late in the first half when he landed hard on his shoulder after being hit at the end of a scramble by Chris Gocong and Scott Fujita.

Kyle Boller entered and struggled, but the Raiders got enough big plays to win consecutive games for the first time this season.

"I'm not going to let this football team blink," Jackson said. "We'll continue to press forward and get better."
