Halftime: Raiders 10, Lions 6

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Saturday, August 25th, 2012 at 5:39 pm in Oakland Raiders.

It took the Raiders eight snaps from the 8-yard line to get into the end zone, but Darren McFadden was finally awarded a 1-yard run on a play overturned by officials.

The Raiders piled up plenty of yards if not points, more than doubling Detroit’s offensive output. Eddy Carmona’s 56-yard field goal at the halftime gun gave Oakland a four-point lead.

The Oakland defense more than held its own, giving up two field goals and holding the Lions in a goal-to-go situation.

Detroit had only three points to show for a Palmer interception on an ill-advised screen inside the 20 and an 80-yard kickoff return by former Raider Justin Miller.

Philip Wheeler broke up a pass intended for Calvin Johnson at the goal line.

Detroit quarterback Matt Stafford left the game with an injury to his non-throwing hand and Sebastian Janikowski is likely out with a groin injury.

    OMG what a run by Pryor.

    He just secured himself the starting TE position if he wants it.

    LOL, Pryor is better than Tebow!

  • Plunketthead

    TP is so good he makes Knap look good and thats impossible, right?

  • Raider Riff

    RRS,

    Im now officially a Terrel ‘Houdini” Pryor fan. Save me a seat on the bandwagon.

    But he’s still got a ways to go before he’s anywhere near Luck or RGIII.

    Im heavily rooting for him to get there now. I hate to sound like Al but dang that speed he showed was unreal and has me hooked.

  • RaidO

    Forget Palmer. Raiders need to pull a “Broncos/Tebow” and design the offense around TP. Looks he is getting better every game.

  • redshirt

    146.

    Like I said in a previous thread – he was only the QB coach in Houston and had nothing to do with the success of the offense on gameday… especially not the running game.

  • SR Raider

    Pryor lookin good. So is the d for the most part
