For the first time this season, the Raiders trail at the half, with the Browns on top 17-14 and will receive the ball to begin the third quarter. The Raiders struck first in the game with a Gareon Conley pick-six on Baker Mayfield, and the Browns answered with a field goal.
The Browns then reeled off 14 more unanswered points with a 63-yard Nick Chubb rush and a 49-yard pass from Mayfield to Darren Fells. Mayfield hasn’t had a huge game, going only 8/17 for 129 yards, and the Raider pass rush has had periods where they have harassed him and made him rush throws.
Derek Carr hit Amari Cooper for a short touchdown in the second quarter, but threw an interception that bounced off the hands of Jared Cook to bring the half to a close. If the Raiders want to win this game, they will have to overcome the second-half woes that have plagued them thus far and finish the game properly.
