Halftime: Raiders 13, Falcons 7

Carson Palmer threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Denarius Moore, a short-field score set up by a third interception of Matt Ryan, as the Raiders went into halftime with the lead.

Tyvon Branch got Pick No. 3, courtesy of a blitz by Philip Wheeler which caused Ryan to throw a gift into the air.

Moore made a nice duck-under move against a head-hunting Mike Peterson to turn a short completion into a touchdown.

Next up for the Raiders will be playing well in the third quarter, a period during which they’ve been outscored 55-7 this season.

    Just a fundamental flaw in the game plan to let Abraham get single blocking all day.
    ***********************

    Raider Dell told me this earlier….dont let Abraham have single blocking….semi pros know more than coaches

  • alex7

    I guess power-runs can fail too.

  • C2E

  • J Hill

  • HueKnewButHisEgoGrew

    Defense playing its heart out.

  • ray_d

    Fking knapp get it together turd, or run the no huddle

  • alex7

    Don’t forget DMac’s hustle to run down the fumble recoverer at the 1-yard line.

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Cmon Knapp!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • morilla

    55 excels when there is no room to gain yardage. He should just be our goal line MLB

    excuse me?

    that was my boy Mike Huff, Cork!!

  • Marks hair

    Nasty and bryant killed that play

  • alex7

    Al did NOT want Michael Huff. He has stated he wanted Matt Leinart that draft.

    haha.

  • ChrisinNC

    Wow. Our defense is playing out of our minds. If we lose this game, the offense needs to go sit in timeout. For a LONG time.

  • alex7

    DMac’s hustle on the fumble saved us 4 points.

    GREAT Al Davis picks????

    =======================================

    This is reminiscent of Davis with a press release to say ‘I told you so’ after DHB started ripping it in CAMP. Let’s settle down here. Jury’s still out. A great play every couple of games does not make a good player.

    Knapp, were thinking of u

  • Method To My Madness

    Dmac running hard…just not alot there

  • C2E

    no more 3 and out

  • ray_d

    Come on first down

  • alex7

    Huff was an Art Shell pick.

    Davis said he wanted Leinart. Presumably one soft-tossing lefty from USC (Marinovich) wasn’t enough.

  • https://twitter.com/Albert_B_Paine Albert Bigelow Paine

    Offense is getting too conservative.
