Lions Vs. Raiders Score Update: Oakland Leads Detroit 17-14 At Halftime

The Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders continue to trade blows with the Raiders taking a 17-14 lead to the half.

The Raiders reclaimed the lead on their first possession in the second quarter in style, going 96 yards in seven plays to take a 14-7 advantage. Carson Palmer connected twice with Darrius Heyward-Bey on big plays during the drive. The first play came on a 35-yard reception to dig the Raiders out of a hole deep in their own territory. Then the two connected on the 43-yard scoring play after Palmer dropped off a short pass to Bey and the speedy receiver did the rest with his legs.

After the teams swapped possessions, the Lions put together a key scoring drive late in the second quarter to tie up the score before the half. Once again, quarterback Matthew Stafford found his target on a deep pass, this time hitting Nate Burleson for 39 yards down the left side allowing Burleson to run into the end zone and tie up the game.

The Lions defense couldn't hold down the Raiders to end the half though, allowing Carson Palmer to direct the Raiders into field goal range, where kicker Sebastian Janikowski made good on the effort by the offense, knocking in a 46-yard field goal at the end of the half.
