The Oakland Raiders pulled off a big upset over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles with a 13-9 win on Sunday. And who could have predicted that win after the lousy play so far this season.
But it wasn’t the offense that won the game, JaMarcus Russell did complete a short pass that resulted in the single touchdown of the game, but he also through two interceptions. The defense came out swinging as Raiders Coach Tom Cable had asked them to, and the Eagles offense could not handle the Raiders when they rushed Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.
Too bad the Raiders have already lost most of their fans for the year, the Oakland Coliseum looked pretty empty at the start of the game, and didn’t get a whole lot better as the game progressed.
Cheap tickets are still available for the Raiders vs NY Jets game on Sunday October 25th.
