|Raiders Get Past Rams
|OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Bruce Gradkowski replaced an ineffective Jason Campbell after halftime and led the Raiders to three scoring drives and a 16-14 victory over the St. Louis Rams in the home opener on Sunday.
Gradkowski threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Louis Murphy, Darren McFadden ran for 145 yards and Sebastian Janikowski kicked three field goals to give Oakland (1-1) its first win in a home opener since 2004.
Sam Bradford threw two touchdown passes to Mark Clayton but was unable to get the offense moving for much of the second half as the Rams (0-2) lost for the 27th time in 28 games.
