Raiders Vs. Lions Recap By The Numbers: Darrius Heyward-Bey Sets Career Mark

The Oakland Raiders suffered another heartbreaker of a loss against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, holding a 27-14 lead in the fourth quarter only to watch it all fall apart in the final five minutes. The Raiders wound up taking the 28-27 defeat. There was some good news to be found in the offensive numbers, however. Let's take a look at some of the key stats.

Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer had a standout game, possibly his best since joining the team midseason. He finished the game 32-for-40 with 367 passing yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. That touchdown was a 43-yard pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey in the second quarter.

Heyward-Bey had a stellar game of his own and it's safe to say that he has fully recovered from his neck injury a few weeks ago. The receiver racked up a career high 155 yards on eight catches, averaging 19.4 yards per catch.

Running back Michael Bush led all rushers with 77 yards on 18 carries, continuing his string of solid outings.
