Raiders Vs. Lions Score: Oakland In A Shootout With Detroit, Up 14-7

The Oakland Raiders and the Detroit Lions have put out the offense in this game. Both the Raiders and the Lions have proven they can drive down the field on either team, as they've put up over 200 yards of offense in the first quarter.

The Raiders actually drove the ball down the field early and had the ball just outside the red zone with a 4th and 1 at the 24, but Carson Palmer overthrew his man (who was streaking past his defender on his way to the end zone). The Raiders did come back on the next drive though, using a Marcel Reece 26 yard rush and an 18 yard completion (in addition to two horse collar 15 yard penalties by the Lions) to set up a Louis Murphy touchdown.

Bad coverage by the Raiders defense led to a Calvin Johnson 51 yard touchdown, allowing the Lions to tie things up with the Raiders near the end of the first quarter.

However, Carson Palmer came right back with two connections to Darrius Heyward-Bey to put Oakland up 14-7 in the second quarter.

Don't expect this to be the end of the scoring in the Coliseum.
