The Raiders went into Minnesota and took care of business going up against the Vikings and their rookie quarterback Christian Ponder. The Silver and Black stuck to the running game behind Michael Bush and mixed it up with long passes over the middle to tight end Kevin Boss. The Raiders got up early and stuck to the lead but they did allow the Vikings to creep back into the game. Next week will be a true test to see where the Raiders are when they Chicago Bears come into town. —Nick Restivo
