GAME HIGHLIGHTS        Click on the box below to watch the clip
The Raiders cruised to an easy win in this game whilst admitting their minds were really focused on an upcoming Monday Night encounter with the Bengals.   Ken Stabler ran his season touchdown total to 23 with a pair of scores in the second half and spent the entire fourth quarter on the bench watching the back-ups earn playing time including future Buc QB Mike Rae who threw a late touchdown pass to Mike Siani. Oakland had been favoured by a then-season-high 23 points going into the game.
GAME HIGHLIGHTS Video footage from the expansion season is limited to occasional clips from the NFL Films season highlight film as NBC who broadcast all 14 games that season, destroyed the master tapes some years later leaving none of the games available in the way other games from Buccaneer history are.
