Ryan Fitzpatrick and Fred Jackson lead the Bills to 2-0 with win over the Raiders

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to David Nelson with 14 seconds left to cap a wild back-and-forth fourth quarter and lead the Buffalo Bills to a 38-35 victory over the Oakland Raiderson Sunday.

The Bills scored touchdowns on all five of their second-half possessions to overcome a 21-3 first-half deficit. The teams traded leads five times over the final 14:10.

Fred Jackson scored twice and had 117 rushing yards for the Bills (2-0) in their home opener. Fitzpatrick finished 28-of-46 passing for 264 yards and three touchdowns.

The Raiders (1-1) haven’t fared well when traveling East. Last season, they were 0-3 when taking cross country trips.

Jason Campbell went 23 of 33 for 323 yards and two scores before having his last desperation pass intercepted by Da’Norris Searcy in the end zone.

But it wasn’t until some 10 minutes after the game ended that the result was official.

With both teams in their locker rooms and much of the stadium empty, referee Mike Carey returned to the field to review the final play and if Oakland wide receiver Denarius Moore caught the ball.

Carey then announced the call stood as an interception.
