SEATTLE, SEPT. 16 -- Jay Schroeder said the Los Angeles Raiders knew they were going to score when it counted. Then they went out and proved themselves right.
"We weren't in any hurry," Schroeder said after leading the Raiders to a touchdown with 1:26 left for a 17-13 victory today over the Seattle Seahawks. "We weren't in a panic."
Schroeder led the 65-yard drive, and Greg Bell scored on a one-yard run.
Schroeder, who completed 10 of 17 passes for 236 yards, was four of six for 74 yards on the winning drive, including a 24-yarder to a leaping Mervyn Fernandez to the Seattle 3.
"I got high enough to get the ball," Fernandez said.
"That didn't surprise me," Schroeder said. "He's been doing those kinds of things since I came to the Raiders three years ago."
Two plays later, Bell went into the end zone standing up for the second touchdown of the quarter. The Raiders (2-0) went 65 yards in 10 plays in 4:31 to beat the Seahawks for the first time in five games, having lost in six of their last seven meetings.
"On that play, I was supposed to go where the play was," Bell said.
The Seahawks (0-2) took a 13-10 lead with 6:07 remaining on Norm Johnson's 19-yard field goal after a drive bogged down near the Raiders' goal line. They elected to go for a field goal rather than a touchdown after three running plays from the 3 netted just a yard.
The Raiders scored two touchdowns in the final quarter. They scored on a 12-yard pass from Schroeder to Fernandez with 13 seconds gone in the period.
The loss came despite a brilliant day for the Seahawks' Dave Krieg, who completed 19 of 24 passes for 225 yards. Krieg hit his first 14 passes for 171 yards.
