Lions Vs. Raiders: Oakland Leads 7-6 At Half

After the first half at O.co Coliseum, the Oakland Raiders lead the Lions 7-6 thanks to a 12-play, 86-yard drive in the second quarter that was capped with a one-yard touchdown run by Darren McFadden.

The Lions got on the scoreboard first with a 41-yard Jason Hanson field goal in the first quarter and cut the lead to one with another Hanson field goal in the second quarter, this time from 30 yards out. Following a Willie Young interception from Carson Palmer, the Lions offense was given the ball on the seven-yard line but couldn't take the lead after a pass from Shaun Hill intended for Calvin Johnson fell incomplete.

The Lions received another opportunity after a Stephen Tulloch interception, Palmer's second of the game. This was also squandered with a three-and-out. Hill played much of the first half in replacement of Matt Stafford who left the game early with a finger injury on his non-throwing arm.

Mikel Leshoure, the 2011 second-round pick of the Lions, made his NFL debut in the first half after missing the entire 2011 season due to injury, but was underwhelming, gaining just one yard on five carries and adding a six-yard reception.
