Jordan helps Oakland get first victory

Raiders 19 Cowboys 13

Week Four

October 03, 2005

Oakland, Calif. -- This was supposed to be the week Randy Moss got more involved in the offense. Instead, two Raiders who had struggled in the first three games helped Oakland to its first win.

Maryland alumnus LaMont Jordan ran for 126 yards and a score, Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals and Oakland's defense had a late goal-line stand yesterday to lead the Raiders to a 19-13 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

With Moss going up against the team he's tormented for 10 touchdown receptions in five wins in his career, it figured he'd have a breakout game. But other than a long catch on Oakland's first drive, he was more of a decoy.

Jordan was the workhorse, running up the middle for tough yards a week after getting just 19 yards on 16 carries.
