Stunning finish takes Raiders over Bengals

BY foxsports • November 23, 2009

Before the season even started, the Oakland Raiders picked this week's game to dedicate to Marquis Cooper, their former special teams star who died in a boating accident this year.

With Cooper's family watching, it was only fitting that it was the type of special teams play Cooper took so much pride in that decided this game.

Bruce Gradkowski threw a 29-yard game-tying touchdown pass to Louis Murphy with 33 seconds left and Brandon Myers forced a fumble on the ensuing kickoff to set up Sebastian Janikowski's game-winning 33-yard field goal that gave the Raiders a 20-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

"He caused the fumble," linebacker Sam Williams said. "That was unbelievable."
