Greg Olsen helped out with six grabs for 53 yards and and linebacker Luke Kuechly recorded nine tackles with an interception in the win.

Oakland's Carson Palmer left with a first-quarter injury and Matt Leinart took over, going 16-of-32 for 115 yards and an interception for the Raiders (4-11).

It was the seventh loss in eight games for Oakland.
