Halftime: Raiders 10, Bucs 7
By Bill Williamson
OAKLAND -- Halftime thoughts:
Oakland running back Darren McFadden is out with a leg injury. He is questionable to return. There is no other information.
The same goes for defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, who is questionable to return with a chest injury. Cleary, these are two key players who Oakland needs to return for Sunday and beyond.
This is a pretty sloppy game. A holding penalty on Oakland tackle Willie Smith nullified a long touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to Derek Hagan. Oakland also had back-to-back personal foul calls on Kelly and safety Tyvon Branch.
Oakland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey made a great one-armed catch while being interfered with in the second quarter. Great play. It set up the go-ahead touchdown pass from Palmer to Rod Streater. The Raiders have scored in the final two minutes of the first half in every game this season.
The Raiders tried a fake punt, but a pass from Shane Lechler to Taiwan Jones was short of a first down.
Former San Diego receiver Vincent Jackson has two catches for 84 yards, including a score, for Tampa Bay.
