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.

    Listening to the audio, but I don’t hear “Missile” Mike anywhere.

    Not an NFL starter

    Cut him. Or better yet, Im sure we could get a few Filet-O-Fishes for him in a trade with the Dolphins.

  • redshirt

    Taiwan lookin good.

  • Plunketthead

    Time for TP to earn his black jersey.
    The Reg will trade him

    I believe Criner was cut prior to the game as well.
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Where is Criner?

    —————–

    Semi’s cut him this morning. Wouldnt let him on the team bus.
    $$$$$$$$$$$$

    Why? He couldn’t score from the GL?

  • MiamiRaider78

    That made me laugh out loud.

  • redshirt

    lol you goons… they showed Criner in uniform on the sideline earlier in the 1st half

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Pryor made a throw!

  • Try Some Reality

    Lol at Smith bouncing off Pryor like a child

  • Plunketthead

    TP can move!!

  • morilla

    Man, TPs passes are floaters.

  • DJ Johnny

    Pryor really moving the ball…

    Not the chains, unfortunately.

  • Marks hair

    Criners not a 1st half guy.. bubble player

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Goodson may get cut.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Criner is more Freddie Mitchell than Freddy Bilentikoff

  • redshirt

    did we just get a Mitchell sighting?

    —————-

    Yep. But he couldnt punch it in at the GL. Cut him.

  • redshirt

    125.

    Goodson deserves to get cut. He’s a liability with the ball.

  • Raider Riff

    On a serious note…

    … we havent seen the 3-4 once yet this preseason. Does it really exist or are we keeping it that secret?

  • Just Fire Baby

    Goodson won’t be cut, and won’t have more than 30 or so touches this season.

    Special teams guy. I am not so sure what is so hard about understanding this.

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Return game is such garbage.

  • Raider Riff

    Ive seen enough of Taiwan. Time to join the other Raiders on the sideline and save that hammy.

  • da trinity

    Desmond Bryant is what you call a hard hat and lunch pale player

  • http://raiders.com Klas Tjorborn

    Criner will make team. McGhee is gone.

  • RaiderRockstar

    pull Jones before he pulls another hammy!!

  • redshirt

    128.

    More bad playcalling from Knapp imo. Shouldve pitched it to DMAC on the edge on 1st and goal. He’s got the speed to hit the pylon and the power knock over a d-back or two to punch it in.

    If hes that good of a ST guy, I say keep him.

    Ive been beating the cut-him drum since his fumbles but we clearly need the ST help.

  • Gomer

    Can knapp get cut too? Saunders is much smarter and wiser. Where is this team goin? We should be beatin the pants off detroit like seattle did to kc. WTF

  • http://www.raiders.com Raider O

  • Just Fire Baby

    That tells you all you need to know about the OC.

  • redshirt

    131.

    Because he WILL fumble the ball on SP.

  • Gomer

    Its obvious knapp has not designed a system built around the players he has. WTF
