Raiders vs Giants final score: Late turnovers sink Raiders, lose 24-20

Al Bello

The Raiders got off to a quick start in this game just as they needed to do. The Giants fumbled the opening kickoff and the Raiders got the ball at the five-yard line. They would score a touchdown in three plays with a Pryor sneak up the middle for the one-yard score.

The lead wouldn't last long, however. A couple drives later, the Giants would get even on a big special teams play of their own by blocking a Marquette King punt and returning it for a touchdown to tie up the game at 7-7.

After that, it was a back and forth affair with the Raiders getting two more scores off of turnovers - a field goal following a fumble and an Tracy Porter interception returned for a touchdown.

The Giants started to turn it on to begin the second quarter when Eli Manning led a long drive to put the Giants up 14-10. They looked to have the momentum until the crucial interception by Porter that put the Raiders back up 17-14 to head into the half.

Terrelle Pryor was having a horrible day early on with just three completions on 12 pass attempts for 27 yards in the first half. He made more noise on the ground with a couple first down runs. It is Rashad Jennings who was moving the offense for the most part with nine rushes for 55 yards (6.2 yards per carry).

To start the second half, Pryor looked to bounce back in second half and things started well as he led a long drive to begin the third quarter. Then things went downhill quickly.

The following drive, the Raiders were on the move and nearing field goal range looking to take a nine-point lead. That hope ended when Pryor threw an interception that was returned to the five yard line where the Giants scored on a few plays. What should have been a nine-point lead turned into a 1-point deficit.

The Raiders wouldn't score another point in the game. The Giants would add a field goal and finish out the game for the win. Pryor would add a fumble to his resume on a last ditch attempt to score.

The story of the game, besides the Pryor turnovers, was the Raiders' inability to stop Giants' running back, Andre Brown. He ran all over the Raiders defense for 115 yards on 30 carries and a touchdown.

The Raiders had a pretty good ground game brewing themselves with Rashad Jennings running well. He had 88 yards on 20 carries. But they went away from Jennings at the worst times and the results of that killed the Raiders hopes on several drives and eventually aided in the Raiders losing this game.
