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.

    2 guys take the wrong angle?! Sad!

  • RTF916

    At least we’re playing 3 quarters of football now. It is progress, I guess. But man it’s just sickening to see a team play so good than just turn the switch off so fast.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    can we exit the same old MR?

  • The Big Banana

    Brandien Ross, that’s how. Saw the same thing last week.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    many are.

  • jtdxyz

    ugh

  • turf toe

    shredding us

  • RaidingTexas

    Yeah, need some more playmakers. These are all depth guys.

  • 2romes

    Tight end makes them look silly.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    He will. he’spretty cool. enough? who knows?

  • Zymurge

    The difference is that McG’s bad choices hit the ground. TPs hit the defenders’ hands.

  • turf toe

    Why give up one year when you can give up more?

  • RaidingTexas

    Really need a turnover badly here. It’s all cowgirls now.

  • rioderek

    This is quickly beginning to look like last week. The opposition makes adjustments and the Raiders do not

  • RTF916

    This game is tied and it feels like we’re down by 2 scores.

  • RaidingTexas

    Romo. Going down throws a dart. Just unreal.

  • c2e

    no lie

  • funnyfalcon

    lol

  • turf toe

    yeah

  • RaidingTexas

    It’s been a lopsided affair since they went up 21-7.

  • The Big Banana

    Because that’s where it’s headed, and in a great big hurry.

  • rioderek

    Giving Romo to much time and the backs are ripping off 7-8 yards a pop

  • turf toe

    Raiders look completely deflated.

  • 10centsworth

    I gotta go eat. Trick is, friends old lady demanded no football. I’m gonna knock of my share of their wine locker and enjoy the idea of reading the stats tomorrow. I’ll miss you guys angst and bemoaning, but know I won’t be missed. Tday out.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Did you see that replay a buffet of holding. Maybe that was the halftime adjustment.

  • funnyfalcon

    They’re not giving him too much time, his line is just that good.

  • c2e

    glad to see the 3rd Q over

  • Sebastian Livermore

    So who wants to teach our team how to tackle

  • 2romes

    Cowboys are at home. Come back is a great game for them on Turkey day. America is rooting for him.

  • olisa

    WHy are they soooo bad in the second half??

  • Ron69

    Raiders in a comical mode, couldn’t even stop my grandpa

  • funnyfalcon

    The refereeing has been suspicious.

  • turf toe

    I wish we could stop the game and take the tie.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    so we’re down by two scores with a half a quarter left? Tied up! A whole quarter. Oh, sorry, I was reading the posts.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Adjustments??? Are you watching the same game. They are making plays like Romo on the last play or Whitten juking 2 defenders on 3rd down.

  • jtdxyz

    no, the tackling has been

  • lefty12

    I know you don’t know anything so let me help you out-these teams have better talent than we do and once they see what we’re doing,their talent takes over.

  • RTF916

    Could be the critics of this staff we’re right. They’re just a little too green.

  • The Big Banana

    Roach threw a punch.

  • turf toe

    Have you been watching, Purvis? We look awful now.

  • funnyfalcon

    Send in the clowns…

  • The Big Banana

    My bad, misread the number

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Maybe there still is a ref conspiracy.

  • funnyfalcon

    Too late now, give up mode in full swing.

  • c2e

    that’s one way to get their offense off the field.

  • jtdxyz

    no

  • Zymurge

    I said last week and see the same pattern this one. the DA/Tarver crazy blitz scheme is being caught up to by the league. They catch people off guard early but once the other team team can apply what they’ve practiced from the tape to recognize and adjust.

    Notice how we aren’t seeing 7 guys lined up on the LOS with ony a few hands on the ground? Everything now is looking more base 4-3. I think that’s the only adjustment that Tarver has once they start reading the stacked line look.

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Cowboys did the same thing in first half no flag

  • turf toe

    Idiot.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Wrong!
