OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jason Campbell threw two touchdown passes to give Washington the lead and Quinton Ganther put it away by running for two fourth-quarter scores in the Redskins' 34-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
The Redskins (4-9) had lost three straight, blowing leads of six, eight and 10 points. Those losses came against upper-echelon teams in Dallas, Philadelphia and New Orleans, not the bottom-dwelling Raiders (4-9).
Washington took a 17-13 lead into the fourth quarter this week but just built on it from there against JaMarcus Russell and the Raiders. Oakland had won two of three, led by fourth-quarter comebacks by Bruce Gradkowski, who replaced an ineffective Russell as the Raiders quarterback last month but was injured in this one.
