Halftime: Raiders 21, Cowboys 14

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, November 28th, 2013 at 3:08 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders were up at halftime but had reason to feel some frustration after letting Dallas drive 73 yards in eight plays for a far-too-easy touchdown with 10 seconds left in the half.

Raiders quarterback Matt McGloin was razor sharp during two second-quarter scoring drives, going 5-for-5 for 81 yards and five first downs on third down throws. Rashad Jennings capped both drives on 1-yard runs.

    Losers normally have low expectations. It’s a primary personality trait

  • The Big Banana

    Momentum swing complete.

  • RaidingTexas

    It’s gonna get really ugly in here now.

  • disqus_yeZNegncsV

    where the sideline pass?

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Fire these clowns now!!

  • Michael

    Ha yea while throwing from his back foot as well

  • aigraiders

    Olson clearly panicking now

  • RTF916

    Well, it took about 3 quarters, but now the Cowboys are looking like the Cowboys and the Raiders are looking like the Raiders. We’re a work in progress. Can’t get too excited about anything.

  • c2e

    wake up damn it

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Researched that, did you?

  • RaidingTexas

    It’s not over. A turnover would help.

  • 10centsworth

    You guys are so predictable. Degeneration accelerates,, my mom enters your conversation next.

  • RTF916

    I hope you’re right. But I’m seeing a different game in this half, with two different teams.

  • Al_is_theraiders

    Dayum 10 men to punt…. Yeah there’s huddle management….

  • J Hill

    King is kicking the shhyyytt outta the ball.

  • turf toe

    ha

  • jtdxyz

    paging mr. romo

  • turf toe

    sigh. yeah.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Nah. Your mom had high expectations. I can tell.

  • turf toe

    looks like it

  • olisa

    damn We need Young in there, because Ross is garbage

  • lefty12

    We are short on talent.A few better players would do wonders.

  • RTF916

    True. Cowboys are built to play in late January. We’re rebuilding.

  • 2romes

    This is where we need MCG to shine and he has not. Pressure to win the game. I want to see MCG it done.

  • Zymurge

    I don’t see anything I’d call panic. It’s a chess match between him and the opposing DC. Let’s see if he readjusts based on what he’s showing in the second half.

  • 10centsworth

    As I left home, she told me “Keep you chin on the curb, your mind’ll stay out of the gutter.” Mantra.

  • funnyfalcon

    Cowboys being able to run on us is the really surprising thing.

  • Zymurge

    Cowgirls starting to bring more heat now. Let’s see how McG and Olson counter. Mix in some screens, a reverse, or a quick over the top to an outside WR with single coverage.

  • c2e

    no excuse

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    jump pass.

  • turf toe

    whooop woop woop wooop

  • funnyfalcon

    How do you get juked by Witten? Ridiculous.

  • Michael

    Wtf. Tackle???

  • DaMick

    that looked…really bad

  • Zymurge

    Young not that great either. These are backups no matter how you slice it. Missing Branch a lot more than people realize.

  • RTF916

    And, enter same old Raiders. smh.

  • RaidingTexas

    Sigh. Witten just totally outclassed them. That’s not a DA/Tarver problem. Player problem. They just aren’t good enough yet.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I did see that last week.

  • 10centsworth

    Good test. Me too.

  • Raider O

    Wow!!!

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Man they got to quit sending 3 only. Oh wait they did. Different rush same result.

  • 2romes

    Raiders Are stupid again not position on defense. Two guys no team work!!!!

  • Zymurge

    DBs dropping like flies. I guess it’s their turn after it was OL last week.

  • funnyfalcon

    They just aren’t getting there.

  • lefty12

    Are you happy now?

  • funnyfalcon

    Get up Jenkins! :(

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Quit making excuses for the Coach. We have the best roster in the NFL…. NOT

  • 10centsworth

    Perfect scenario, OT, Blimp hits a 56 yarder.

  • Zymurge

    They’ve played well enough that people forget that these are all second stringers that didn’t have better FA offers.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    I’d go eat turkey if I were you.
