The Oakland Raiders might not be able to punch it in the end zone today, but they have the Polish Hammer is on their side, so it's not really needed at this point.
Oakland has opened up their lead to two scores thanks to effective passing by Carson Palmer. Palmer spread the ball to Chaz Schillens for 17 yards and Marcel Reece for 11 and 29 yards to help give Sebastian Janikowski a 37 yard field goal and put Oakland up 15-7. On the next Oakland scoring drive, Palmer connected with Schilens for 11 and 16 yards and Michael Bush for 12 yards to set up a Janikowski 44 yarder. That sets a franchise record for most field goals made in a game for Oakland.
Oakland's defense has proven they can contain Caleb Hanie for the most part, but some rushes by Marion Barber and Matt Forte set up a 50 yard Robbie Gould field goal to put the Bears back within a score. It's a tight game of field goals as we head into the last ten minutes in the Coliseum.
