Carson Palmer wasn’t going to apologize for a mistake-filled win by the Raiders a week after they lost what might have been their best-played game of the season.

Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 40-yard field goal after Cecil Shorts III fumbled on the opening possession of overtime and the Raiders overcame three turnovers and a 14-point deficit to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 26-23 on Sunday.

“An ugly win is better than a pretty loss,” Palmer said. “I know that. I’m just proud of the way we fought because it wasn’t pretty.

“We did not play up to our standard and play the way we’re coached. But we hung in there and defense played great giving us the ball back. It’s just good to get out of here with a win.”

It’s the exact opposite feeling the Raiders (2-4) had a week ago when they took undefeated Atlanta down to the final second on the road before losing 23-20.

So even though this win came against the struggling Jaguars (1-5), who were missing star running back Maurice Jones-Drew and quarterback Blaine Gabbert for much of the game, Oakland was pleased with the outcome.

“We’re definitely very fortunate to come out with a win,” defensive tackle Richard Seymour said. “We’re not satisfied. We understand that we have to play better, that we have to get better as a team.”
