6:51 pm
carries for 112 yards and 3 touchdowns it was a career day for him, but unfortunately. wilson suffered a high ankle sprain will likely have to go on the injured reserve later this week where they watch every single play on the whole game. >>i mean every time he gets hit, there's it looks like the goal line is right in front of them and he's doing everything you can to cross that you can see it on the field i want to try to talk to him during the 2nd quarter barely could communicate with me because he was in that spot side and try to mess a mess it up. but i was very happy for him and how hard he played in this extremely unfortunate got hurt. >>yesterday i spoke about tom brady tormenting the raiders throughout his patriots career starting with the infamous tough rule, but maybe the raiders would have better luck against tampa time. wishful thinking tampa time had his best game as a bump as you can see him talking trash and he killed that raiders team and their porous defense 4
6:52 pm
touchdown passes. and a touchdown run and you could see him chirping all game long. it was a humble humbling afternoon for the raiders who won who have now find themselves at 3 in 3. 2 and a half games behind the chiefs. the biggest issue may be that defense only one team in the nfl is giving up more points snag then raiders are per game. 32.8. you hate to see it on offense. the raiders aria problems yesterday. the offensive line hatton practice all week and it showed they gave up 3 sacks and their car was under constant pressure. he also threw an interception all in all this is a team with a lot of holes with the most glaring ones coming on defense. >>we play some really good offense just so you know, tom brady's a problem for a lot of people so is drew brees and certainly a lot of the guys players. we're going to stick together bond together and make some changes in the lineup possibly in the scheme that we use and we're open we
6:53 pm
change the results that we're getting. >>yeah the raiders just getting killed on the defensive end 2 teams trending in the opposite direction. you have the raiders trending down and the forty-niners ever sense that blowout loss a couple weeks ago to the dolphins. they've looked like that team that won the suit went to the super bowl last year yeah i can't get too sad about it the raiders are no longer bay area teams and not going to get many people yeah a lot of raiders fans still that's going to remain the case goes first in line yeah, all right still to come this evening, a heart tugging surprise a young boy celebrates his birthday with the best gift could possibly imagine. >>and certainly gusty winds around the bay area now and a cold night ahead we'll talk ab
