SEATTLE -- With an 0-4 preseason in the books, the Raiders began their longest night.
The Raiders lost 20-3 to the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night at CenturyLink Field to complete their first winless preseason since 1989 and second in franchise history.
For what it's worth, coach Mike Shanahan started 1-3 that season, was fired, replaced by Art Shell, and the Raiders finished 8-8.
The final 2011 tally after 16 quarters of football that doesn't count:
Opponents 101, Future Bullies 44.
Not that the Raiders are much concerned about any of that, given all the decisions that began to be debated in its aftermath.
"Preseason is over with," Raiders coach Hue Jackson said. "We've got some cuts to make, and we're going to find the right 53 men to go forward with. I think deep down this is a team that is comfortable with itself and realizes there are some big challenges coming up."
Are the Raiders ready?
"We're about to find out," quarterback Jason Campbell said after going 8 for 11 for 76 yards and getting three points in three possessions in which the Raiders moved the ball well but hurt themselves with execution errors and penalties.
We'll know soon who did or did not make the 53-man roster, and only Jackson knows how much of what happened played in to the selection process.
The Raiders weren't scheduled to arrive in Oakland until after 3 a.m. Saturday.
The process is more compacted for the Raiders and Seahawks than for any other teams in the NFL, given the fact that everyone else played Thursday night and there was a 7:30 p.m. kickoff time.
Coaches were already beginning the process on the charter flight of deciding which 26 players were going to be waived, traded or put on injured reserve to reach the 53-man minimum by 1 p.m.
There will be minimum sleep for coaches who will make the cases for players in their position groups before Jackson begins formulating the roster with owner Al Davis.
For those players on the bubble, it promised to be a long, restless several hours as they pondered their professional futures and whether it would be in an Oakland uniform.
Oakland's lone points Friday came on a 34-yard field goal from Sebastian Janikowski on a drive that stalled in the red zone. Jackson sent the Raiders out for a third drive hoping to see better execution after not getting any points in the first two possessions.
The Raiders' opening possession self-destructed on a timeout when they couldn't line up properly on third-and-4, followed by a false start by Khalif Barnes. Campbell was then rushed into an incompletion on third down by Raheem Brock.
Janikowski, who had converted all seven previous field-goal attempts in the preseason, was wide left from 52 yards.
On the second drive by the starters, Oakland got 28 quick yards on a pass-interference penalty by Walter Thurmond against Darrius Heyward-Bey but could do nothing with it, punting from its 45.
The Seahawks' first-team offense played just two series with a 25-yard field goal by Jeff Reed the only points, but Oakland's disturbing trend of giving up yardage against the pass continued.
Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was 5 for 7 for 88 yards, with Oakland averting a score on the opening drive on an interception at the goal line by Tyvon Branch.
It was one thing to be taken apart by New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees the previous week. The Seahawks are another matter, a team that was struggling to move the ball and having issues along the offensive line.
Hue Jackson said the problems can and will be addressed with hard work.
Seattle, which put its reserves in with 39 seconds left in the first quarter, had 108 yards of offense.
Tarvaris Jackson's biggest play was a 43-yard strike to a wide-open Golden Tate with Michael Huff the only defender in the vicinity, setting up a Reed's first field goal.
After the Seahawks drove 80 yards in 13 plays to score on a 1-yard Thomas Clayton run with 9:07 left in the half, the Raiders trailed 10-0, and Jackson sent his first-team offense on the field for their third and final possession.
Trent Edwards relieved Campbell after the third series, but got only one possession (going 3 for 4 for 18 yards) before giving way to Kyle Boller to start the second half.
Rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who begins a five-week suspension Saturday and does not count toward the 53-man roster, did not play. Jackson said he considered putting Pryor in but "didn't want to put him in a position where he would fail" given his time with the team.
