HYDE INTERCEPTS CARR
On the first pass of the Raiders’ second possession of the game, Packers DB Micah Hyde swooped in front of Oakland TE Clive Warford and picked off QB Derek Carr’s pass, returning it 34 yards to the Oakland 2-yard line. A penalty on the Packers backed it up 15 yards, but the offense still needed only four plays to score, with FB John Kuhn taking it in from five yards out for a 7-0 lead.
RANDALL GETS A PICK-SIX
On the very next pass Carr threw, Packers rookie CB Damarious Randall was in the perfect spot to intercept an overthrow intended for WR Seth Roberts. Randall then raced 43 yards untouched for his first career pick-six and the Packers had a 14-0 lead. It was Randall’s third interception of the season, tying him for the team lead with veteran CB Sam Shields.
JONES HAULS IN 30-YARD TD
Just three plays after WR Jeff Janis returned a kickoff 47 yards to give the offense good field position, QB Aaron Rodgers found WR James Jones all alone down the far sideline for a 30-yard score. The touchdown put the Packers back in front, 24-20, in the third quarter moments after the Raiders had taken their first lead of the game. Jones, who is from the Bay Area and played for the Raiders last year, finished with six catches for 82 yards. The TD was his team-leading eighth of the season.
