OAKLAND, CA - Doug Martin rushed for career highs of 251 yards and four touchdowns, while a pair of late interceptions helped derail an Oakland comeback as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Raiders, 42-32, in Week 9 action.

Martin is a rookie from Boise State, who was born in Oakland, but raised in Stockton, where he attended St. Mary's High School. He set a new franchise record with his 251 rushing yards against Oakland on Sunday.

Josh Freeman finished 18-of-30 for 237 yards and a pair of scores through the air for the Buccaneers (4-4), who have won three of their last four outings.

Mike Williams added 68 yards and one touchdown on four receptions, with Vincent Jackson posting a TD grab to cap Tampa's first-ever win in Oakland.

Carson Palmer threw for 414 yards and four touchdowns but was intercepted three times on 39-of-61 efficiency for the Raiders (3-5), whose two-game win streak was halted.

Marcel Reece led the receiving corps with 95 yards and one score on eight catches, while Brandon Myers totaled two TD receptions and 59 yards in a losing cause.

Darren McFadden departed in the second quarter with a leg injury after gaining just 17 yards on seven carries. X-rays taken proved negative.
