Seahawks beaten black and silver in Oakland

Published on November 1, 2010 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

This one had ugly written all over it.

It started with a gaggle of drops, missed tackles and penalties. Sprinkle in eight quarterback sacks, a handful of injuries and just plain bad luck, and you’ve got the Seattle Seahawks’ 33-3 meltdown to the Oakland Raiders on Halloween at the Oakland Coliseum.

The Seahawks allowed the Raiders to roll up a season-high 545 yards of offense, managing only 162 yards themselves.

The 30-point loss was Seattle’s worst of the season. Nonetheless, the Seahawks (4-3) remain alone atop the NFC West because Arizona (3-4) lost at home to Tampa Bay.

“We got nothing done,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “We accomplished nothing in any aspect of our (game). We got whipped at the line of scrimmage on both sides …, and the only redeeming factor is halfway through the third quarter we still had a chance, after really not playing well at any point.”

After playing their worst half this season, the Seahawks trailed 10-0 and had a chance to rally. But receiver Mike Williams dropped a pass from Matt Hasselbeck on third-and-9 from the 11 that would have given Seattle a first-and-goal.

Seattle’s Olindo Mare then missed a 29-yard field goal, his second miss of the game. Mare missed a 51-yarder wide right in the first half, breaking his streak of 30 consecutive made field goals since last year.

From there, the Raiders took off, helped by a fortuitous play that was reminiscent of Franco Harris’ legendary “Immaculate Reception.”

Jason Campbell’s pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey bounced off the receiver’s knee across the field, was bobbled by fellow receiver Jacoby Ford and snagged by running back Michael Bush, who ran 55 yards to Seattle’s 30. Six plays later, Oakland settled for Sebastian Janikowski’s 22-yard field goal for a 16-0 lead and control of the game with a little over a quarter remaining.

“The ball just didn’t really bounce our way today,” said Seahawks cornerback Roy Lewis.

Carroll said his team has to learn from the loss and move on, because the foe next Sunday at home is the tough New York Gians (5-3), who are coming off a bye week.

“This game doesn’t have to be more of a factor than it was today,” he said. “That’s the challenge we face.”

Raiders fullback Marcel Reese catches a 30-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-1 in the second quarter, beating Seattle safety Lawyer Milloy. Both are former players for the University of Washington. An injury-ravaged offensive line can’t protect Matt Hasselbeck, who gets sacked eight times by the Raiders before suffering a head injury and giving way to Charlie Whitehurst on the final series. Hasselbeck reportedly has a “slight concussion.” Raiders coach Tom Cable grew up in Snohomish, but he has no loyalty to the Seahawks. “The Seahawks weren’t in Seattle when I was a little kid,” Cable said. “They didn’t come until what, ’75 or ’76? By then I was 12 years old. So I’d always been a Raiders fan.”
