OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Jerry Rice won't stand for being embarrassed in his 19th NFL season.Something had better change in a hurry, because the likely Hall of Famer is annoyed with how the Oakland Raiders are playing.
Yes, they should. Warrick had a good performance against a great secondary. This should be a great sign for coach Marvin Lewis. If Warrick can show consistency in his performance, he could be a great complement to Chad Johnson.
Question on the Raiders: Has the competition caught up to Oakland or is it the injuries?
It's a combination of both. The injuries are obviously hurting this team, but the other teams in the AFC have gotten better. This is not going to be a runaway for the Raiders.
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
While the Raiders appeared more disciplined on special teams, they still made their share of penalties a week after committing 17. Four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson intercepted a pass by Kitna midway through the third quarter, but was called for defensive pass interference. The Raiders would have had great field position. Bill Romanowski was flagged for pass interference against eligible lineman Levi Jones that gave the Bengals first-and-goal at the 1, and Dillon scored to make it 10-10. ... Tyrone Wheatley, inactive last week, scored on a 2-yard run in the first quarter for a 10-0 Raiders lead.
