Halftime: Colts 17, Raiders 13

Second half notes

Indianapolis took a 17-13 lead on Peyton Manning’s 18-yard touchdown pass to Jacob Tamme,a drive helped by a 25-yard pass interference flag on Chris Johnson (minimal contact) and with skirmishes resulting in personal fouls on both sides.

The Raiders got in position for a 53-yard field goal attempt by Sebastian Janikowski at the gun, but he missed the kick after earlier converting from 59.

—The Colts went three and out following Janikowski’s field goal, with Michael Huff stopping Jacob Tamme a yard short on a 4-yard pass from Manning on third-and-5.

The Raiders then drove from their own 18 into Indianapolis territory, with Darren McFadden bursting for 26 yards on the first play, Campbell hitting a 9-yard pass to Louis Murphy on third-and-9 and a 9-yard pass to Chaz Schilens to the Indy 29 on third-and-4.

A 4-yard pass to Brandon Myers on third-and-6 brought out Sebastian Janikowski at the two-minute warning for a 38-yard field goal and a 13-10 lead. The kick fin

— Janikowski hammered a 59-yard field goal through the uprights with 9:31 to play at halftime as the Raiders tied the score following a 34-yard drive in nine plays. Oakland had its first two first downs of the game on the drive.

It was the second-longest field goal in Raiders history. Janikowski had a 61-yard field goal against Cleveland 364 days ago. Janikowski and Morten Andersen are the only two players in NFL history with two field goals of 59 yards or more.

—The Raiders stiffened to open the second quarter, forcing a chip-shot field goal by Adam Vinatieri after Chris Johnson broke up a second-and-7 Manning pass for Pierre Garcon and John Henderson batted down the third down throw.

Indianapolis drove 50 yards in 11 plays for the score.

    Big hold by Reece…Mario needing help which results in Zach Miller blocking Mathis.

  • Raiders for life

    Well, you guys are right. Z. Miller is not a very good blocker.

  • raidermarty

    The right side of our offensive line cannot pass block. Period. They are terrible.

    Lets FIGHT! C’mon Kelly HIT someone!

    STanford Routt burned again!

    I want a cornerback for Christmas

  • olinesux

    manning is abusing routt….deangelo hallish

  • YoungAmerican

    Another TD given up by Routt.

    The secondary may be good statistically in terms of yards given up, but how many times have we seen THAT?

  • SnB Production

    and the Raiders tendered a 1st and 3rd for this guy

  • PurpleDrank81

    With this o-line who would u rather have on the team…

    Peyton Manning,Tom brady,Mike Vick

  • 504 Raider

    Plenty time left. Run the ball Hue.

  • ArmChair GM

    Michael Vick…I’d want Vick even with a good o-line…

  • olinesux

    the real cantbell has stood up….

  • SnB Production

    PurpleDrank,

    JC is the best we got and he’s not that bad for this team.

    We WILL NEVER see QBs like Manning or Brady or Vick here…it is what it is.

    Get an o-line that blocks and a team that doesn’t rack up 120+ yards in penalties each game

  • raidermarty

    too many mental breakdowns and mistakes tells me we are starting to lose focus in this game. Offense needs to do something

  • TerrapinRaider

    That was one BS call on Routt.

    That was on Veldheer, not Campbell…

    Bey is making some plays
    JC has to make that pass

  • 504 Raider

    Aw man, we look bad right now.

  • olinesux

    not the underthrow to bush

  • VanHeathen

    Routt’s scholarship is getting revoked…

  • SilverNBlackPA

    Has there been a single snap this game that at least one of Veldheer, MHenderson and Routt haven’t been completely embarrassed?

  • raidermarty

    This game is starting to get away from us

  • Just Fire Baby

    Campbell has that shaky look to him, where he just starts getting worse and worse.

  • YoungAmerican

    Veldheer has had a pretty decent game all things considered.

    63 yard punt by ShanO

  • Orthodoxdj

    Campbell is lighting it up. This is awesome!

  • SnB Production

    When you log 100+ yards A GAME in penalties…it makes inning very difficult.

    Raider fans are so used to the 100+ penalty yards per game that no one even considers the impact in the game.

    See…more penalties – 1st down

    That’s on COACH CABLE

  • olinesux

    jfb thats exactly what i see…

  • Just Fire Baby

    Tebow is 10/17 with a INT against Houston.

    We are seeing the birth of a superstar!

    *************************

    He might throw for 350 yards today

    +++++++++++++++

    I assume this must mean Bruce Campbell is getting blazed on the sidelines…

  • http://www.hotmail.com The Dirtee Raccoon

    Was Seymore worth our 1st rnd pick?

    I say yes, but we gotta get some depth. J. Henderson is gettin old, as well as Seymore. This is a GREAT time to get young depth!

  • buckeyeraider

    Damn refs hold Raiders to letter of law on every play. BS call on Routt. He was playing the ball, looking back. The Colts DB contacted Ford waaaayyy past the allotted 5 yards…no call.

    Never saw a replay on Reece’s costly hold that wiped out Bush 15 yd run.

    The announcers can call it a lack of discipline or the Raiders shooting themslves in the foot all they want.

    I call it a double standard. Raiders get no breaks. Ever.

  • 504 Raider

    Cincy handling business. Eff You Jeff Fisher.

  • Orthodoxdj

    People say Jason Campbell is good when playing with a lead. I guess leads that come from Ford kickoff returns don’t count.
