Damarious Randall scores first career touchdown, Jaelen Strong scores go-ahead touchdown
A week after locking down Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, rookie cornerback Damarious Randall once again shined in a big way on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
During the first quarter of the Packers 30-20 win, Randall intercepted a wayward Derek Carr pass and proceeded to return it 43 yards for his first career pick-six.

Meanwhile, Houston Texans rookie wideout Jaelen Strong also found the end zone for his third career touchdown during his team's win over the Indianapolis Colts (all three have come against the division foe).
Strong scored a go-ahead eight-yard touchdown with 4:58 remaining left in the game for Houston, and the win gives the Texans a one-game advantage over their division rivals for the AFC South lead.
