Recap

Bruce Gradkowski replaced an ineffective Jason Campbell and led the Oakland Raiders to a 16-14 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Darren McFadden ran for 145 yards on 30 carries and Sebastian Janikowski kicked three field goals for Oakland (1-1), which won its home opener for the first time since 2004.

Rookie Sam Bradford was 13-of-23 for 171 yards and a pair of touchdown passes for St. Louis (0-2), which has lost 10 straight and 13 in a row to AFC foes.

Gradkowski finished 11 of 22 for 162 yards with a touchdown and an interception in place of Campbell, who was 8 of 15 for 87 yards and an interception before being pulled at halftime.

Gradkowski hit Louis Murphy for a 4-yard touchdown with 6:07 left in the third, giving the Raiders a 13-7 lead. Janikowski extended the lead to 16-7 with 9:05 remaining in the fourth.

Bradford’s second touchdown toss to Mark Clayton drew the Rams within 16-14 with 3:18 remaining. St. Louis had a chance to get the ball back with the Raiders backed up, but a questionable roughing-the-passer call gave Oakland first down at its own 24-yard line.

McFadden’s tough running then helped the Raiders help run out the clock.
