Lions Vs. Raiders Score Update: Lions Tie Game On Johnson Touchdown Catch 7-7

The Detroit Lions tied up the score with the Oakland Raiders at 7-7 late in the first quarter when quarterback Matthew Stafford connected with receiver Calving Johnson on a 51-yard scoring strike.

The Lions came up empty on their first two possessions which ended with punts before they put together an eight-play, 80-yard drive that ended with the big play from Johnson. The score answered a touchdown scored by the Raiders on their second possession. The Raiders struck quickly, covering 76 yards in just five plays with the big play coming on first down after Oakland moved into Lions territory. Marcel Reese took a short pass and advanced it 24 yards followed by a Stephen Tulloch personal foul which moved the ball to the 12 yard line.

Speedy receiver Louis Murphy then took the ball around the end for a 12-yard touchdown to get the home crowd going early. Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer is 8 for 10, delivering an efficient passing game so far for the Raiders.
