Saturday, August 25th, 2012 at 4:42 pm in Oakland Raiders.
Sebastian Janikowski missed a 30-yard field goal and Jason Hanson connected from 41 to account for the scoring in a first quarter that was mostly two possessions.
Carson Palmer was 4-for-5 for 51 yards on Oakland’s first series. Faced with fourth-and-1 at the 13, coach Dennis Allen opted to take the points _ only to have Janikowski inexplicably miss a chip-shot attempt.
Detroit drove 57 yards in 12 plays to set up Hanson for the Lions’ field goal.
Bad news for the Raiders _ four pre-snap first-quarter penalties. Two false starts on Mike Brisiel and neutral zone infractions on Matt Shaughnessy and Dave Tollefson.
Oakland’s second possession resulted in a single first down _ a 12-yard Palmer to Rod Streater pass. Streater has three catches for 42 yards.
