OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Doug Martin ran for 251 yards and scored four touchdowns Sunday, helping the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hang on for a 42-32 victory over Oakland.

Despite Martin's career-high day, the Buccaneers (4-4) needed two late interceptions to turn back a Raiders comeback and record their first-ever victory in Oakland.

Josh Freeman connected with Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson on scoring passes, finishing 18-of-30 for 237 yards as the Bucs notched their third win in four games.

The Raiders (3-5) couldn't keep their two-game winning streak alive despite 414 yards and four TD passes from Carson Palmer.

The signal-caller went 39-of-61 through the air but was intercepted three times.

Raiders running back Darren McFadden was taken out in second quarter with a leg injury. X-rays of the injury proved negative, the team said.
