Raiders Vs. Dolphins Halftime Update: Big Plays Help Oakland To First Half Lead

The Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins are battled their way through a defensive struggle in the first half on Sunday afternoon and, after 15 minutes of action, the Raiders took a 10-7 lead into the halftime locker room. The Raiders offense has been far from outstanding, but Carson Palmer was able to connect with Mike Goodson for a 64-yard pass and catch touchdown out of the backfield on the biggest play of the first half.

Palmer was far from outstanding in the first half, but a few big plays helped him put up excellent numbers as he completed 13 of his 25 passes for 239 yards and the aforementioned touchdown run. Palmer was also able to lead a nice drive late in the second quarter, but it ended short with a Sebastian Janikowski field goal.

The Dolphins' only score of the first half came when rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill was able to sneak the ball across the goal line for a two-yard touchdown run. Tannehill completed just nine of his 19 pass attempts for a total of 85 yards before halftime.
