OAKLAND, Calif. - JaMarcus Russell's debut may have drawn the biggest cheers. Josh McCown delivered the biggest plays.
McCown threw three touchdown passes for Oakland despite missing two series when Russell played for the first time, and the Raiders capitalized on Denver's mistakes to beat the Broncos.
Justin Fargas carried 33 times for 146 yards and a touchdown and Oakland scored 24 points off four turnovers to snap a five-game losing streak to Denver. The Raiders also ended a 12-game home skid to AFC West rivals a week after snapping a 17-game losing streak in the division by winning 20-17 at Kansas City.
