Raiders vs. Browns Score: Oakland Survives Cleveland Rally, Wins 24-17

The Oakland Raiders nearly made a critical error when they didn't allow Sebastian Janikowski to kick a chip-shot field goal up 14 with 4:44 left in the game. Oakland let Michael Bush try and run for the first down on 4th-and-1 at the Cleveland 5, and the Browns didn't let him get anywhere.

Colt McCoy completed nine of his 12 passes on the next drive, hooking up with Benjamin Watson for 12 and 18 yards, Monterio Hardesty for six yards and 12 yards, Evan Moore for a short one yard pick-up, Greg Little for 10 and 13 yards,and Mohammed Massaquoi for 10 and 12 yards. The last throw to Massaquoi was for a touchdown, cutting the Oakland lead to a touchdown with over a minute remaining in the fourth quarter.
