Doug Martin has exploded for two touchdowns in the third quarter, leading the Bucs to a 28-10 lead over the Raiders with only 15 minutes remaining.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't waste any time to start the second half, scoring two touchdowns on all three of their drives in the third quarter to take a 28-10 lead over the Oakland Raiders. Doug Martin scored on the Bucs' opening drive on a 45 yard run, and followed that up near the end of the quarter with a 67 yard touchdown run. Mike Williams had a touchdown catch in between the two Martin runs, as well.

It seemed that Oakland had a chance to get back in the game with a few minutes left in the quarter, but Carson Palmer threw an interception to Leonard Johnson to kill the drive. Martin's 67 yard run came just a few plays later.

Josh Freeman is 16-27 for 225 yards and two touchdowns, and Martin, who had 31 rushing yards at halftime, now has 174 yards and two touchdowns on the day. Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams both have touchdown receptions.

Raiders running back Darren McFadden has left the game with a leg injury, and his return is questionable. Mike Goodson has replaced him as Oakland's primary back, and has zero rushing yards and 40 receiving yards. Carson Palmer is 24-38 for 265 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
