Patriots’ sluggish offense beats Raiders 16-9

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots had trouble getting into the end zone. Defensive tackle Vince Wilfork made sure the Oakland Raiders stayed out of the end zone in the final minute. An interception by the 325-pound Wilfork near his goal line gave the heavily favored Patriots the ball with 51 seconds left, and they ran out the clock to hold off the Raiders 16-9 on Sunday. “It was a team play,” Wilfork said after his third career interception. “I just happened to catch it.” The ball deflected off Logan Ryan after Rob Ninkovich jarred it loose from intended receiver Denarius Moore. On the previous play, Darren McFadden’s 6-yard potential tying run into the end zone was nullified by a holding penalty against guard Gabe Jackson. “When I turned around and everybody wasn’t coming to celebrate with me, I knew something wasn’t right,” McFadden said said. Jackson didn’t think he held.
