Halftime: Panthers 14, Raiders 3

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, December 23rd, 2012 at 11:25 am in Oakland Raiders.

Cam Newton scored from 3 yards out following an interception by Luke Kuechly to put the Panthers up 14-3 with 17 seconds left in the half.

The Raiders appeared to have gotten a break when Graham Gano missed a 48-yard field goal attempt, with Carolina failing to score after having a drive extended by two controversial penalty calls on Oakland.

However, when Oakland got the ball back, Matt Leinart, subbing for the injured Carson Palmer, threw two quick incompletions _ neither close to his target _ and was picked off by Kuechly on third-and-10.

DeAngelo Williams ran 22 yards with a screen pass to the 7 and Newton scored two plays later.

Oakland scored on a 21-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski, with the Raiders faltering in the red zone and settling for the field goal.

    Greg Knapp is making a LOT of money right now. Just wanted to remind everyone.

    I need to get some things together. Think Im gonna try my hand at NFL O-Co.

    Again, someone is actually PAYING Greg Knapp MONEY to call these plays. If someone is willing to pay for this, I think I stand a good chance of getting out there.

  • Chris in NY

    Honestly this is the best thing for us. Only hope of sweeping changes on the coaching staff is for the Raiders to fall flat on their faces this week and next. That + a top 3 pick makes it worthwhile.

    I still can’t help but root for them while the plays are happening, but it’s getting to that point in the game where we need to pull for the long-term interests of the team which means losing now in hopes of having a chance to win in 2013.

    My biggest fear though is that Dennis Allenand co will be back regardless.

    Burris whiffs on a safety…

    What a doof.

  • RaidingTexas

    Burris is now looking like a 4th rounder.

  • DT42

    How many missed tackles can Miles Burris make? Have they just overplayed him and he’s hit the rookie wall?? What’s wrong with him?

  • Thec

    Saunders has no input in this debacle

  • Try Some Reality

    Sabotage as someone said before.

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

    That was me.

    DA the Double Agent (credit to Priest) and the Great Sabotage of 2012

  • SLAYER

    BURRIS WAS AFRAID TO LEVEL HIM FOR A SAFETY,..WOULD BE PENALTY FOR SURE. 666

  • Marks hair

    A pass to the sticks???? Carolias crraaazzy!!

  • zopi

    Why are Corky and the rest of the Bay Area giving a pass to Junior is beyond me, his ineptitude is beyond belief.
    He is not going anywhere, though, he’s the ZarMac’s pet project. Marky would have to do a major clean up, which he’s not going to do.

  • Derek

    Newton treated Burris like a girl. Threw that clown off like he was a undesireable female groupie

    Payback going to cost us a possesion…

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Gotta love Krapp’s brilliant play calls.

    This offense is thrilling !

    Stretch runs for no gain. Continual 2 yard dumpoffs regardless of down and distance.

    If we can’t win, I am unabashedly rooting for us to get shut out or fail to score.

    Can’t handle any more Krapp.

    DA is a visor wearing, no coaching pencil necked POS who has no business coaching the Raiders.
    ———————————————
    DA is not a Raider. Someone needs to knock that f#ckin stupid visor off of his head.

    That visor and Sharpie are going to be reminders of this garbage that they were responsible for putting on the field. Worse Raider staff of all time. Yes, worse than Shell II, worse than Bugel, worse than Callahan, worse than Shanahan, not even CLOSE to being as good as Mike White. And thats terrible. Hue Jackson? At this point, Hue Jackson is a Raider GOD compared to DA.

    Do not bring these clowns back next season. No point in wasting the first quarter of 2013. Because if they did make it back next season, theyd be fired after a few weeks. Lets put this thing out of its misery. End of the season cant come soon enough.

  • Marks hair

    Hey cork you gonna ask some east coast questions to da or are you just gonna suck his dìck again?

  • Al_is_theraiders

    hit the mutha again!

  • DJ Johnny

    I love the Raiders but I hate this f’ing team.

  • RaiderRockstar

    stop them!!

  • MiamiRaider78

    Houdini? Lol Is it because he magically disappears from the field after a few snaps?

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    The Raider Defense has a nasty asszed attitude today. Too Bad the offense can t help

  • Al_is_theraiders

    fvckin murph!

  • VanHeathen30

    How many quarters has it been since the O scored a TD?

  • Tow Mater

    This ain’t football. Staff can’t coach. Players need to kick the coaches off the field.

  • http://ggeden.blogspot.com/ GG

    This game will end up a Clausen vs Lechler at QB contest

  • Chris in NY

    Terrible call by the officials. Bryant was clearly blocked into Newton.

    There’s probably a good reason the refs were assigned to this Toilet Bowl game. Atrocious. Most replacement crews are better than these clowns.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNoi_wwzbtQ Zymurge

    Keep biyatch slappin Newton around. I’ll take the 15 yarder to extend the drive every time, because that’s more free shots on the lil puzzy cryin and kickin after getting sacked.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    hit him again’

  • rudegruden

    I’m unimpressed with Cam.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    189…thats the raiders!

  • Marks hair

    Cam forces alot of passes with the lead… goof

  • SLAYER

    ALLEN AND TARVER AND KNAPP NEED MORE YEARS. NOT JUST ONE MORE YEAR BUT MORE YEARS… 666

  • J Hill

    Defense is playing really well, folks.

    DA and Tarver will be back.

  • Raider Riff

    What is with our defenders inability to “break down”.

    It’s high school stuff. How you dont know how to do it or how its not instinctual is unbelievable at this level.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Raiders Defense doing it’s job :)

  • VanHeathen30

    HISTORIC BLOWOUT LOSSES
    and Zero TD’s for 2 complete games,
    Should =TERMINATION

  • Al_is_theraiders

    def isnt playing for their coaches…playing for themselves.

  • Just Fire Baby

    That was a flag on Bryant, can’t launch at knees.

    The Tom Brady rule. Called it for us a few weeks ago.
