Boyd’s 1997 NFL Replay Game #66 – St. Louis at Oakland

Raiders finally get in the win column!

The Raiders have been awful in 1997, but it was no fault of new Raiders’ QB Jeff George. The flamethrower has had the best start to a season in his career and he didn’t disappoint Sunday afternoon in Oakland as the Raiders won their first game of the season, 34-23, over the now 2-3 St. Louis Rams.

George threw for 368 yards and 4 TDs to 4 different receivers. His 80-yard bomb to Ricky Dudley sealed the deal. On the season, George has 101 QB Rating through 5 games. He has over 1,400 yards passing, 11 TDs and no interceptions!

As for the Rams, they got a couple of TD strikes from Tony Banks, but they gave up 446 yards of total offense to the Raiders.
