Raiders Let Bills Back Into The Game, Trail 24-21 Early In Fourth

The Oakland Raiders dominated the first half of their game against the Buffalo Bills, but they have just as quickly been dominated in the second half. Whatever the Bills were missing in the first half, the switch went on at halftime and they've figured out the Raiders defense in the third quarter.

The Raiders were up 21-3 to start the second half but a big Fred Jackson run woke up the team and the crowd as he cruised 43-yards to a touchdown. The Raiders got the ball back and looked ready to chew up some clock, but Darren McFadden coughed up a fumble on the Buffalo 43. The Bills followed that by driving 57 yards in seven plays, capping it with a Steve Johnson touchdown, cutting the lead to 21-17.

The Raiders offense stalled out on their subsequent possession, punting back to the Bills. The Raiders appeared ready to stop the Bills on the drive but stupid mistakes have cost Oakland once again. The Bills drove down and capped the drive with a one yard touchdown run by Fred Jackson. The Bills now lead 24-21 as the Raiders are in serious trouble.
