Sunday’s result marked the first time that the Buccaneers have defeated the Raiders at home.
Palmer’s 414 passing yards marks his second-highest total as a Raider, falling just 3 yards short of his 417 vs. San Diego on Jan. 1, 2012. His total is the fourth-highest single-game mark in franchise history, passing Tom Flores’ 407 passing yards against the Houston Oilers on Dec. 22, 1963.
Palmer’s attempts and completions both rank second in franchise history to Rich Gannon’s 43-for-64 effort on Sept. 15, 2002, at Pittsburgh.
Palmer’s four touchdown passes marked his highest single-game total as a Raider, and the most since throwing four as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals on Dec. 26, 2010, vs. San Diego.
Palmer connected with 10 targets, with seven of those players recording multiple catches.
Palmer extended his franchise-record streak of passing for 200 or more yards in a game to 14 consecutive contests.
TE Brandon Myers hauled in a career-high eight receptions, for 59 yards, and recording his first two career touchdown receptions.
Myers, who leads the team with 39 receptions, scored on a diving 4-yard effort and a 1-yard catch in the fourth quarter.
Myers’ two touchdown catches marked the first time a Raider tight end has hauled in two scores in a single game since Courtney Anderson accomplished the feat on Sept. 8, 2005, at New England.
Myers’ 39 receptions are his most in a season at any level. He had 34 as a senior at Iowa in 2008, and a school-record 33 at Prairie City-Monroe High School as a prep senior in 2003.
In the fourth quarter, Myers caught five passes for 28 yards and two touchdowns. He entered the game tied for seventh in the NFL with 15 fourth-quarter receptions.
Janikowski also has converted 117 consecutive PATs, having last missed a point-after Dec. 14, 2008, vs. New England.
QB Carson Palmer and WR
RB Taiwan Jones’ reception of Lechler’s pass marked Jones’ first of the season and the third of his career. Each of Jones’ receptions has come from a different passer (Jason Campbell, Carson Palmer and Shane Lechler).
Streater’s touchdown reception marked the second of the season for the non-drafted rookie free agent. Streater hauled in a 2-yard touchdown pass in the season opener vs. San Diego on Sept. 10.
Streater drew a pass-interference call in the end zone on a fourth-quarter drive, setting up a 1-yard touchdown pass from Palmer to TE Brandon Myers.
DT Richard Seymour recovered a Buccaneers fumble in the fourth quarter, setting up a touchdown drive. It marked Seymour’s first fumble recovery of the season and first since Sept. 12, 2010, at Tennessee.
