Negative passing yards, but a win OAKLAND, Calif. -- David Carr completed 22 straight passes two weeks ago and didn't win. So he doesn't feel bad about getting one on a day he didn't complete a single pass in the second half and his team finished the game with minus-5 yards passing. "It's the weirdest feeling I've ever had in a football game," Carr said. The Texans (4-8) became the first team in 25 years to win a game with negative yards passing, using Demarcus Faggins' 58-yard fumble return for a touchdown and two long returns on special teams to beat Oakland, 23-14.

SAN DIEGO - The kickers differ as much in size as in mind-set. The Raiders' Sebastian Janikowski, who stands 6 feet 2 and 255 pounds, wants the pressure. The Buccaneers' Martin Gramatica, who is much smaller at 5-8, 170 pounds, would prefer to relax. In a game where Oakland's top-ranked offense takes on Tampa Bay's top-ranked defense, the game may come down to a kick just like last year, when Adam Vinatieri's field goal won the Super Bowl for the New England Patriots. "I would love to kick the winning field goal," Janikowski said.

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.

NEW ORLEANS -- In olden days, Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, like any self-respecting Southern football coach, didn't give a dadgum about kickers. Didn't even want to waste a scholarship on those footsie boys. Bowden loved real football. He loved World War II generals. He had no place in his heart for skinny little guys who wore kicking shoes and did not hit anybody. Then, Bobby Bowden watched a few field goals go wide right. "I'm no genius," he said. "But you hit me in the head enough times, and maybe I'll figure things out."

1 Ravens 2 Raiders 0 Both defenses stood tall in the first quarter, but it was the Ravens' defense that put points on the scoreboard. Rookie linebacker Jameel McClain, an undrafted free agent from Syracuse, corralled Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell in the end zone on a blitz, with help from Terrell Suggs, for a safety. Ravens: Russell sacked in end zone by McClain, 10:32. 2 Ravens 19 Raiders 0 After being shut out in the first quarter, the Ravens' offense showed up in a big way. Jim Leonhard gave the Ravens good field position with a 46-yard punt return near the end of the first quarter, and Willis McGahee capped a five-play, 17-yard drive with 14:26 left in the second with a 1-yard touchdown run. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took advantage of a busted coverage to connect with wide receiver Demetrius Williams on a 70-yard TD about seven minutes later.
