End 1st qtr: Raiders 3, Chiefs 0

The Raiders will open the second quarter with a second-and-10 at the 17-yard line and a chance to open up a 10-point lead.

An interception and 21-yard return by Matt Giordano off of Brady Quinn set the Raiders up at the 45-yard line, and a third-down illegal contact penalty on Stanford Routt against Darrius Heyward-Bey put Oakland at the 37. Carson Palmer found Denarius Moore for 18 yards to the 17.

A 58-yard inside screen from Palmer to Moore set up a 36-yard Sebastian Janikowski field goal. Routt intercepted Palmer’s first pass.

    Palmer haters are unreal. He is the Raider offense.

  • RaidingTexas

    Jackasspuria, IMO Palmer is the only reason this team is competitive in any way on offense. I was a critic of the trade last year, but he’s by far the best QB we’ve had since Gannon. I admit being on the wrong side of that argument.

    I just wish we had better receivers to match with him.

  • mcfadden20.

    Better hold them here no freakish FG’s

  • Raider Riff

    Raiding Texas is super level headed. You might want to check yourself if youre arguing with him. Thats all Im saying.

  • Sbforever

    It’s nice to a team more inept than us.

    It’s time for a pick 6!

  • mcfadden20.

    Cassel effed up there haha could have just spiked the ball

  • jackasspuria

    RaidingTexas

    Agreed.

    Streater can grow into a dependable guy. Criner too.

    If Raiders need a true legit size/speed/hands combo check out Cody Hoffman from BYU.

    I covered him when he played for Del Norte High School up here in Humboldt County. Amazing athlete and humble.

    Should be 20-6 but i’ll take this effort so far but we could and should do better.

  • 505raiders

    Good News is that our Defense looks a hellova lot better than it did against Denver..

  • J Hill

    GREAT game by 33, so far.

    Keep it up young man!

  • jackasspuria

    Cody Hoffman blossomed into a 6-foot-3, 215-pound wide receiver for BYU. He was amazing at Del Norte High and I loved covering the games he played in up here.

    Would love to see him in Silver and Black.

  • Ghost2Post

    why don’t they take a knee, their QB is getting killed

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

    LMAO, they don’t even try a Hail Mary.

  • Marks hair

    Good half

  • Just Fire Baby

    LMFAO at taking a knee!!!!

    They should fire Crennel at halftime for that.

  • Sbforever

    We could be tied for first at the end of today.

    Our running game is as frustrating as planting a marijuana seed and thinking it’ll grow by looking at it every 5 mins. I think lol

    ——
    Cassel took some unnecessary beating there for nothing …LMFAO hahahaha

  • John David Booty

    Tarver rushing everybody today, different angles. I like it. Hope they keep it up.

  • jackasspuria

    Romeo Crennel has always been an outstanding defensive coordinator.

    But, as a head coach, he has too much on his plate. He’s got Norv Turner-syndrome.

    Complete Cowboys meltdown is in full effect. Cowboys and Jets are going to be the topic on ESPN all week.

    gotta go to the office for a few hours. see y’all after I get back and watch 2nd half on DVR.

    GO RAIDERS!

  • VanHeathen30

    We need to draft A LOT of positions before we get another WR..

    GForce21 is super level headed. You might want to check yourself if you’re arguing with him. That’s all I’m saying.

    See what I did there?

    Note: Obviously edited for punctuation and grammar.

  • mcfadden20.

    Chiefs will come out flat and we will kill them…anybody glad we are not receiving the ball to start the 2nd half?

  • GForce21

    Wow, that Newton pick was ugly. Real ugly.

    All you whiners, you realize we are on pace for 26 points this game, more than what we scored in either 2010 or 2011 per game.

    =======

    we are? I thought we we were scoring 18 points a game which is 24th…But hey, we got 13(7 thanks to a gift) against a team that is giving up 30…I don’t know why anybody wouldn’t think Knapp-time is better than Hue at coordinating an offense. What about the rushing comparison? Can you share that one?

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    I mean we were 2nd & 7th the last couple years in rushing and I wonder if Knapp-time is on pace for that?

  • MiamiRaider78

    Another, polish and pedicure my nails coach sighting…put that name to rest already. Fck!

  • valleyflyin

    the chiefs must want us to win.

  • valleyflyin

    i like moore, but thats 2 drops already
