Individual Notes

TE Brandon Myers tied the Raiders' franchise record with 14 receptions. The record was set by WR Tim Brown on Dec. 21, 1997, vs. Jacksonville.

Myers totaled 130 receiving yards, the most for a Raider tight end since Zach Miller recorded 139 receiving yards on Oct. 18, 2009, vs. Philadelphia.

Myers had a 17-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, marking his second touchdown catch in the last three games and fourth of the season.

Myers has a team-leading 69 receptions, most by a Raider tight end since Todd Christensen totaled 95 in 1986, and the most by a Raider since WR Jerry Porter hauled in 76 passes in 2005.

QB Carson Palmer completed 34-of-54 pass attempts for 354 yards and two touchdowns. It marked his seventh 300-yard passing game of the season, which ranks second to Rich Gannon's 10 in 2002 in the franchise record book.

Including Sunday's performance, seven of Palmer's 10 300-yard passing games as a Raider have come at Coliseum.

Palmer's 54 pass attempts marked the second most of his career, and ranked fourth on the team's single-season chart. He attempted a career-high 61 passes on Nov. 4, vs. Tampa Bay. Rich Gannon (64, Sept. 15, 2002, at Pittsburgh) holds the record.

Palmer's 34 completions ranked tied for fourth on the team's single-game list.

Palmer completed 10 straight passes over one stretch, beginning in the first half with seven consecutive completions and continuing with his first three attempts of the second half.

Palmer connected with WR Rod Streater for a 64-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. The TD is tied for the longest scoring play for the Silver and Black this season, along with RB Darren McFadden's 64-yard run on Sept. 23, vs. Pittsburgh and RB Mike Goodson's 64-yard catch-and-run on Sept. 16, at Miami.

Streater finished the game with four catches for a season-high 96 yards, the most for a Raider rookie since WR Denarius Moore totaled 101 yards in the 2011 season finale on Jan. 1, 2010, vs. San Diego.

K Sebastian Janikowski played in his 200th career game, becoming the ninth player to reach that mark in a Raider uniform.

Janikowksi booted a 51-yard field goal in the second quarter, giving him 40 career field goals of 50 yards or longer and moving him into a tie with Morten Andersen for third place on the NFL's all-time list.

Janikowski missed a 61-yard field-goal attempt at the end of the first half. Janikowski's only other miss this season came on a 64-yard attempt on Oct. 21, vs. Jacksonville. He's 24-for-26 on the year.

Janikowski has now converted 16 of his last 20 field-goal attempts from 40 yards or longer. His four misses were 59-, 61-, 64- and 65-yarders.

Janikowski kicked two PATs to extend his current streak to 124 consecutive extra points.

RB Jeremy Stewart set season highs with nine rushes for 46 yards, averaging 5.1 yards per carry.

Stewart had consecutive carries of 11 and 14 yards on a second-quarter drive that culminated in Janikowski's 51-yard field goal.

S Matt Giordano recorded a first-quarter interception, picking off a pass by QB Brandon Weeden on the Raiders' 5-yard line. It marked the Raiders' first takeaway since a Michael Huff interception at Baltimore on Nov. 11.

CB Phillip Adams recorded his second career interception, and his first as a Raider, picking off a Brandon Weeden pass near the end of the second quarter. His first career interception came as a member of the New England Patriots on Nov. 21, 2011, vs. Kansas City.

Omar Gaither started at MLB in just his third game with the Raiders. It was Gaither's first start since Nov. 20, 2011, at Detroit as a member of the Carolina Panthers.

DT Christo Bilukidi was credited with his first career pass defensed, batting down a Brandon Weeden pass in the first quarter.

DE Lamarr Houston had a key tackle for loss on a third-and-3 play in the second quarter, dropping RB Trent Richardson for a 2-yard loss and forcing a Browns field-goal attempt.

CB Coye Francies had a career-long 32-yard kickoff return in the second quarter.

CB Brandian Ross saw his first significant action of the season on defense, playing at FS. Ross was credited with a quarterback pressure that forced a field-goal attempt in the third quarter.

DT Desmond Bryant got a piece of a Browns field-goal attempt, earning his first career block. It was the second blocked field goal of the season for the Raiders, following DE Lamarr Houston's effort on Nov. 2, vs. Tampa Bay.

Bryant's deflection snapped a streak of 30 straight field goals by Browns' K Phil Dawson.

DT Tommy Kelly and DE Lamarr Houston batted away Brandon Weeden passes on consecutive plays in the third quarter. It marked Kelly's first pass defensed of the season, while Houston recorded his first pass defensed of the season on Oct. 28, at Kansas City.

Houston was credited with a sack in the third quarter, his second sack of the season and first since Oct. 21, vs. Jacksonville.

WR Juron Criner hauled in four passes for 26 yards, recording his third straight game with multiple catches and establishing a season best.

Inactive for the game were RB Darren McFadden, RB Mike Goodson, OL Lucas Nix, T Willie Smith, DE Jack Crawford and DT Richard Seymour.
