Raiders happy to spell 'ugly' with 'W'
OAKLAND, Calif. — Carson Palmer wasn't going to apologize for a mistake-filled win by the Raiders a week after they lost perhaps their best-played game of the season.
Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 40-yard field goal after the Jaguars' Cecil Shorts III fumbled on the first drive of overtime, and the Raiders overcame three turnovers and a 14-point deficit.
"An ugly win is better than a pretty loss," Palmer said. "I know that. I'm just proud of the way we fought because it wasn't pretty."
A week ago Oakland took unbeaten Atlanta down to the final second on the road but lost 23-20.
The Jaguars missed star running back Maurice Jones-Drew (left foot) and quarterback Blaine Gabbert (left shoulder) for much of the game, and backup QB Chad Henne struggled. Shorts got stripped by defensive end Lamarr Houston after a short pass to set up Janikowski's fourth field goal.
