The way Tom Coughlin told the story, he and Kerry Collins had a nice chat about the quarterback's…
Raiders 21, Giants 30
96.8: Quarterback rating for Kerry Collins, his highest mark since Oct. 30.
WHAT WENT RIGHT
X Robert Gallery's cracked fibula forced reserve offensive lineman Chad Slaughter into the lineup and the career back-up more than held his own against Giants defensive end Michael Strahan, though he did poke Strahan in the eye at one point.
X Just before halftime the Raiders drove 62 yards in 97 seconds to score a touchdown, getting into the end zone on Doug Gabriel's 8-yard catch from QB Kerry Collins. It was the most efficient two-minute drill Oakland's offense has run all season
X Defensive end Derrick Burgess recorded his team-record 16th sack of the season and forced a fumble on the same play. It was the third forced fumble this season for the Pro Bowl-bound veteran
X A Chris Carr fumble, on the ensuing kickoff following a Giants score, was overturned after the Raiders made their only successful challenge in three attempts
WHAT WENT WRONG
X The Giants were backed up deep near their own end zone when running back Tiki Barber took a handoff, juked two Oakland defenders then sprinted untouched for a 95-yard touchdown, the longest run from scrimmage by an opponent in Raiders' franchise history
X Down 20-14, Oakland appeared to get a break when Chris Carr fielded a punt deep in his own territory and returned it to midfield. But Denard Walker was called for holding on the play, negating Carr's big return and backing the Raiders up deep near their own end zone. They ultimately punted and Chad Morton's long return set up a short New York touchdown that put the game away
X A pass interference call against New York set Oakland up on the Giants' 1-yard line but four straight running plays -- the last of which was a quarterback sneak by Collins -- netted no gain
X Playing without 1,000-yard back LaMont Jordan for the second straight game Oakland's running game never got going. Zack Crockett gained just 27 yards total while the Raiders were held to 25 yards as a team
