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.

BEST OF MAXIM
After getting outscored by 21 points in the 3rd quarter, the Oakland Raiders were able to get back in the game with 22 points in the last quarter on what could have been an incredible comeback. Well, it wasn’t enough. An interception with a little over 2 minutes left in the contest confirmed the loss, after the Silver&Black gave up [...]

There were concerns after Pro-Bowl guard Nicks went down for the rest of the season. People were saying that the statement game against Minnesota was now also the swan song for Doug Martin and his season. Well just letting you all know the Martin show might have been cancelled but it looks like this one will survive it’s first season. One week in without Nicks and Martin...
Darrius Heyward-Bay of the Oakland Raiders had one heck of a grab during their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Bay hauled in a deep pass from Carson Palmer with one hand, and it was a thing of beauty.

There is no other way to lead a recap of Sunday’s games than with a discussion of Doug Martin’s effort. I spent the week talking about how the loss of the best guard in football may have an impact on this line (lets give Tampa’s o-line some credit, too) and the run game. Martin and his teammates proved me wrong on game day. Oakland fought valiantly to stay in this game, but...
Week 10 is not a week that will turn around your fantasy football season.You won't find many gems out there, yet there are a few safety valves that are worthy pickups if you need a bye-week substitute or want to take a flyer on a couple of gambles.
In this short post I go over the Sit ‘em & Start ‘em picks that I made before the weekend. I also go over players who had a breakout game and could be worth a waiver wie pickup.
