Raiders Vs. Lions Score: Oakland Takes Decisive 27-14 Lead Over Detroit

The Oakland Raiders have done a good job driving the ball down the field in the second half against the Detroit Lions, but they had only three points to show for it. Oakland has four drives and put up 148 yards overall, but one drive was killed by a holding penalty, and another ended in a Darrius Heyward-Bey fumble as it looked like he was about to set up an Oakland red zone opportunity. The Raiders finally got on the board early in the fourth, after a short drive set up what amounted to a pretty automatic a Sebastian Janikowski 51 yard field goal.

The Lions still only trailed by six when they got the ball back, but they were pinned deep inside their own territory, and Matthew Stafford was pressured, flushed out, and Tommy Kelly stripped and forced a fumble that Aaron Curry ran back in for what could be a deciding score. Oakland is in good shape midway through the fourth quarter, and Detroit is in panic mode.
