>Grading the Bills
A : Jackson sensational with 117 yards on 15 carries and 2 TDs. Spiller had finest day as pro with 63 on four tries. Had 217 yards and 8.7 average as a team.
A : Think the price of a Fitzpatrick contract extension is going up? He threw for three more TDs and has seven after two weeks. Raiders tried, but had no sacks.
C : Raiders had 131 yards and three TDs, but held McFadden to 3.6 per carry and forced game-changing fumble with Oakland driving in third quarter.
C- : Bunch of obscure backups had big days and Campbell was terrific. McKelvin struggled and still marginal as starter. No sacks as Merriman barely a factor.
B : Another fine day for DeHaven's kickoff coverage unit as they stopped four returns inside the 20. Blocked field goal at end of first half a low point.
A- Gailey's playcalling was extraordinary in the second half. Team didn't panic after weak first half. Some dubious clock management just before halftime.
>Grading the Raiders
B : Committed as usual. Got 131 yards and three touchdowns. McFadden a horse, but failure to protect ball with Raiders driving in third quarter was killer.
A : Campbell gets little respect as playmaker, but made big throws down the field and threw for 323 yards. Good protection as Bills failed to get a sack.
F : Brutal tackling. Coach Hue Jackson says he's building a bully. Really? What kind of bully allows the other team to rush for 8.7 yards a carry?
F : Not often you see a team get carved up for five TDs on five second-half possessions. Couldn't get to Fitz or figure out who to cover in the big moments.
C : Blocked field goal was nice. Lechler is elite punter. But guys, running kicks out of the end zone doesn't make you tough. It makes you stupid.
B- : Saunders did wondrous job of calling plays. But coverage was abysmal against the pass and team seemed to lose its bearings after McFadden fumble.
