Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Sebastian Janikowski's 40-yard field goal in overtime capped an impressive comeback as the Oakland Raiders rallied for a 26-23 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jacksonville began the extra session with the ball, but a fumble by Cecil Shorts on a catch on third down was recovered by Oakland at the Jaguars 21- yard line. After Carson Palmer took a knee to line the ball up, Janikowski calmly hit the ball down the middle for the win.
Palmer went 26-for-46 with 298 yards, one touchdown, one rushing touchdown and one interception for the Raiders (2-4), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Janikowski connected on four field goals and two extra points in the win.
Jacksonville suffered early injuries to starting running back Maurice Jones- Drew (left foot) and quarterback Blaine Gabbert (left shoulder).
That left Chad Henne under center and he went just 9-for-20 with 73 yards while backup running back Rashad Jennings had 21 carries for 44 yards and a score for the Jaguars (1-5), who have lost three straight.
