Pictures from the Buccaneers' Week 8 matchup with the Raiders.

A back-and-forth contest ultimately went the way of the Raiders on Sunday afternoon, with Oakland downing Tampa Bay, 30-24.

The Buccaneers jumped out to a ten-point lead in the first half, only to have the Raiders rattle off 17 unanswered points and enter the final quarter holding onto a seven-point lead. Tampa Bay took the lead with a little more than two minutes to go, but Oakland tied the game moments later. Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski lined up for a 50-yard attempt as time expired, but the kicker was wide left and the game went into overtime.

Janikowski would miss again in overtime, but it wouldn't matter. With less than two minutes to go in the game, Derek Carr connected with Seth Roberts for the game-winning touchdown. The scoring play came as the Raiders faced fourth down.

Jameis Winston finished the game completing 16 of 32 passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns. His counterpart, Carr, was called on more often – throwing 59 passes. Carr finished the day with 513 yards. Jacquizz Rodgers carries the ball 19 times for 69 yards and a score while Adam Humphries led Tampa Bay in receiving with 58 yards. Kwon Alexnader led the team in tackles with 14, all of which were solo.

The Buccaneers will have to the page quickly. They are set to host the Falcons on Thursday.
