Sweet Revenge: Culpepper Leads Raiders Past Dolphins 35-17

Culpepper, right, dives for the end zone to score as Miami Dolphins' Donnie Spragan

With a chance to show his former team he still has what it takes to win in the NFL, Daunte Culpepper went just 5-of-12 passing for 75 yards but tossed a pair of touchdowns and ran for three more as the Oakland Raiders beat the Miami Dolphins, 35-17, at Dolphin Stadium.  Filling in for an injured LaMont Jordan, Justin Fargas ran 22 times for 179 yards while Jerry Porter caught three passes for 52 yards and two touchdowns as the Raiders improved to 2-and-2 on the season.  Oakland finished with 299 yards rushing, their most in a game since the 1987 season.  In the loss, Trent Green went 14-of-25 passing for 158 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.  Running back Ronnie Brown had a huge day, running 15 times for 134 yards and touchdown while catching six passes for 73 yards as the Dolphins dropped to 0-and-4. The Raiders are off this weekend and return to action on Sunday, October 14th in San Diego.
