It turns out that Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jerry Porter wasn't cheering against his own team. In fact, he wasn't even watching the game. The San Francisco Chronicle reported on its website that Porter, who was inactive for the 27-0 beating the Raiders absorbed from the San Diego Chargers on Monday night, was seen laughing and pumping his fist on the sidelines when Raiders teammate Aaron Brooks was sacked for the seventh time. However, Porter said he was pumping his fist for other reasons.

CINCINNATI -- No one can call these Bengals the worst ever. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a pair of touchdown passes to Chad Ocho Cinco, who celebrated the second one by giving the head coach a kiss, and Cincinnati stopped a late two-point conversion try, preserving a 21-19 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. No longer on pace to be historically bad, the Bengals (1-8) were too much for the stunned Jaguars (3-5), who fell behind 21-3 before making it close.

OAKLAND -- JaMarcus Russell's debut may have drawn the biggest cheers. Josh McCown delivered the biggest plays. McCown threw three touchdown passes for Oakland despite missing two series when Russell played for the first time, and the Raiders capitalized on Denver's mistakes to beat the Broncos, 34-20. Justin Fargas carried 33 times for 146 yards and a touchdown, and Oakland (4-8) scored 24 points off four turnovers to end a five-game losing streak to Denver (5-7).
