After a sluggish start that included a blocked Connor Barth field goal, the Buccaneers relied on a rookie to get them going. Running back Doug Martin would set team records in route to a 42-32 victory over the Oakland Raiders. The Bucs would jump ahead of Oakland 7-3 in the second quarter after Josh Freeman hit Vincent Jackson in the end zone from 20 yards out.But with under two minutes to play in the first half, a one handed catch by Darrius Heyward-Bey down the sidelines put the Raiders deep in Tampa Bay territory leading them to score and head into halftime with a 10-7 lead. Enter Doug Martin. On his third carry of the first drive in the second half, Martin broke a 45 yard touchdown run to put the Bucs up 14-10. The Bucs would extend the lead to 21-10 after Josh Freeman found Mike Williams from four yards out for his 14th touchdown pass of the season on the team’s second drive of the third quarter. After Oakland’s ensuing possession ended when Leonard Johnson intercepted Carson Palmer, two plays later, Doug Martin exploded for a 67 yard touchdown run to put the Buccaneers up 28-10. Oakland would finally answer :49 seconds into the fourth quarter when Carson Palmer hit tight end Brandon Myers to make it a 28-17 ballgame. But it would take just one play for the Bucs to respond as Doug Martin ran for 70 yards for his third touchdown of the game, making it 35-17. However, the Raiders would make it interesting after scoring two touchdowns-one off a LeGarrette Blount fumble-to bring the game to within three points. The game would be sealed when Doug Martin scored a team record fourth touchdown from one yard out, moving the Bucs to a 4-4 record. Martin finished with team records of 251 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries. Martin is also in the NFL record books as his touchdown runs of 45, 67, and 70 yards are NFL records.
