NFL Game Summary - Washington at Oakland



(Sunday, December 13th)

Final Score: Washington 34, Oakland 13

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Quinton Ganther scored the first two touchdowns of his career during a fourth-quarter surge as Washington topped Oakland, 34-13.

Ganther ended with 50 yards rushing on 14 carries while Jason Campbell threw for 222 yards and two scores on 16-of-28 passing for the Redskins (4-9), who had dropped seven of their previous eight games.

Fred Davis had three receptions for 50 yards and two TDs while Santana Moss grabbed four passes for 58 yards in a winning effort.

"I don't consider what we did today was lucky," said Moss. "Just going out there for 60 minutes and playing tough football and knowing that we could have given the game away a long time ago. This game was ours."

The Redskins had eight sacks, four of them by first-round pick Brian Orakpo.

Bruce Gradkowski finished 10-of-18 for 153 yards before leaving the game with a knee injury early in the third quarter for the Raiders (4-9), who couldn't keep momentum going from a 27-24 win over defending-champion Pittsburgh last Sunday.

JaMarcus Russell went 10-of-16 for 74 yards and one interception for the remainder of the contest, and Justin Fargas rushed for a score in defeat.

Gradkowski suffered a sprained MCLs in both knees.

"Injuries hurt us and the penalties killed us," said Raiders tight end Zach Miller. "It was a frustrating day. We just didn't play good enough football."

Washington's back-breaking drive to expand their lead to 24-13 was a 13-play, 80-yard affair that melted six minutes off the clock. Ganther's one-yard touchdown run -- his first career score -- capped the series with 11:22 left in regulation.

LaRon Landry picked off Russell at the Raiders' 39 on the first play of Oakland's ensuing drive, and four plays later Ganther leapt in from the one for a 31-13 contest.

Graham Gano's 41-yard boot on Washington's ensuing series capped the scoring at 34-13.

Sebastian Janikowski booted a 34-yard field goal to put the Raiders ahead in the first quarter, but Davis was on the receiving end of a six-yard TD pass from Campbell to put the Redskins in front.

A one-yard run by Fargas early in the second quarter put Oakland ahead 10-7 before Gano nailed his first career field goal, a 46-yarder, to forge a 10-10 tie.

Davis then made a fingertip catch in the left corner of the end zone to put the Skins ahead by a score with 56 seconds remaining in the second and the visitors took a 17-10 edge to the break.

Janikowski, who missed a 66-yard attempt at the end of the first half, nailed a 54-yarder to bring the Raiders within 17-13 for the lone score of the third quarter.

Game Notes

Washington has won both of its games in Oakland since the Raiders moved from Los Angeles in 1994, the last victory coming on November 29, 1998...Oakland still has won seven of the 11 all-time meetings.
