The Oakland Raiders ran past the Jaguars, winning 19-9.
The Jaguars made the Raiders offense behind Darren McFadden and Terrelle Pryor look like an all-star team. McFadden ran for 129 yards and Jacksonville couldn't find the end zone until the final minutes of the game. Terrelle Pryor threw for 126 yards and ran for 50 in his first start at home in Oakland.
According to the Associated Press, Jacksonville came too close for comfort to being the first team since the 2006 Raiders and Bucs to go without a touchdown in the first two games. However, with 2:53 left in the game, they finally scored a touchdown.
Usama Young, a back up safety for the Raiders playing Sunday in place of an injured Tyvon Branch, had two of the Raiders' 5 total sacks, SFGate.com reports.
Marcel Reece scored the only Oakland touchdown on an 11-yard run after a broken tackle. Sebastian Janikowski drilled four field goals to aid the team in Sunday's win.
There seems to be a direct correlation between the Raiders winning and their high sack totals. When the Raiders sack the opposing quarterback three or more times, their record is 17-4 since 2010.
