Week 13 Raiders vs Browns game thread: Second half

New, comments

The Raiders and Browns start the second half of their week 13 matchup with the Browns up 10-3 over the Raiders.


It isn't exactly what you might call a barn burner in Oakland today. Unless you're referring to how burnt Ron Bartell was on the game's only touchdown.

The Raiders can't get anything going. They have stalled on drives all day, mustering up just 175 yards of total offense. The Browns have 218 yards of offense and two scores.

The first big play of the day came from Matt Giordano who was the opportunistic recipient of a bad Weeden pass and picked him off at the two yard line.

The Raiders offense could do nothing with it and the Browns answered with a drive for a field goal. Then after a three and out by the Raiders, the Browns had a two and in. That is, a two play, touchdown drive capped off by a 44-yard touchdown catch by Josh Gordon to put them up 10-0.

The Raiders were able to add a score of their own on a 51-yard Sebastian Janikowski field goal. It made his 40th career field goal of over 50 yards which ties him for third all time with Morten Anderson.

The Raiders defense was able to take another one away from the Browns when pressure by Lamarr Houston forced a bad throw and a Phillip Adams interception.

The Raiders drove into Browns territory to set Janikowski up for a 61-yard field goal attempt but he missed wide right.
