Halftime: Raiders 12, Bears 7

Aaron Curry’s deflection of a screen pass, intercepted by Kamerion Wimbley and returned 74 yards with 20 seconds to play, put the Raiders at the 7-yard line with the help of a Chicago horse collar tackle by Lance Louis to save a touchdown.

With the Raiders unable to get the ball in the end zone in two plays _ no gain by Michael Bush anda 6-yard swing pass to Bush _ Sebastian Janikowski came on to kick his fourth field goal of the half and give Oakland a 12-7 lead.

Janikowski also had field goals of 40, 48 and 42 yards as the Raiders failed on four occasions inside the 25-yard line to score a touchdown and held just a five-point point lead despite intercepting three Caleb Hanie passes.

Following the Bears’ first touchdown, Marcel Reece accounted for 45 yards of a 57-yard drive on a quick screen left by Carson Palmer before Janikowski converted his third field goal attempt of the game, this one from 42 yards.

The Raiders, faced with a third-and-2 at the 24, opted for a Palmer attempt to Chaz Schilens at the end zone which was thoroughly covered by Tim Jennings.

The Bears drove 79 yards in nine plays to take a 7-6 lead, highlighted by Hanie’s 23-yard scramble around right end on third-and-18 to the 23-yard line and a 29-yard slant to Johnny Knox against Stanford Routt, who either thought he had help in the middle or wasn’t playing nearly tight enough coverage.

    Hue is the MVP of the week for going to the league about these penalties. They aren’t calling many on us.

    Lucky they did’nt get a PF for drivin the QB

  • 504 Raider

    Hanie was just complaining to the ref about a late hit that wasn’t called.

    Keep an eye on this later. I got a feeling that same ref will bail him out next time and keep a future drive alive.

  • Plunk-It

    Its time for the o-line to get erect and pound Bush through the crevice of the Bears d-line and get some distance on the scoreboard.

  • Hagar the Horrible

    We need seven bigs ones right now. If we get them, I promise not to raider and plunder the English coastal lands this week. I’ll be good, I’ll behave…just get me the freaking win.

  • BabySlash

    yeah 2 starting wr’s out and McFadden and Jones out. that explains the drop off in production.

    with Murphy and Chaz….you almost understand JaBustus’ lack of production.

  • 504 Raider

    Hue’s got to have more than 5 plays on that card, right?

  • BabySlash
