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.
