Raiders vs Buccaneers game thread: Second half

Ezra Shaw

The Raiders head into the second half up 10-7 on the Buccaneers in a game that is playing out competitively as expected.

The Raiders offense started out looking terrible. They failed miserably on their first two drives. That's when things began to pick up.

The Buccaneers drove into scoring position and lined up to kick a field goal but Lamarr Houston got pressure and leapt in the air to block the attempt. He then picked up the ball and returned it 34 yards. That play seemed to wake the Raiders up and suddenly their offense began to move. They drove in to score the first points of the game on a field goal by Sebastian Janikowski.

The Buccaneers would re-take the lead in the second quarter on two long passes to Vincent Jackson. The first for 63 yards and the second for a touchdown from 20 yards out.

The Raiders would then do what they have done every game this season and score in the final two minutes of the first half. This time it was a touchdown. It was set up by a gorgeous one-handed grab for 46 yards by Darrius Heyward-Bey. Then two plays later, Palmer hit Rod Streater for a 25-yard touchdown pass and catch.

The Raiders headed into the locker room up 10-7 over the Buccaneers.
