Third quarter: Cowboys 3, Raiders 0
After three, that's where we stand.
*Stephen McGee's first pass was a 16-yard dump off to Shaun Chapas.
*On consecutive plays, McGee had a pass knocked down and saw another one fall incomplete, and he took a shot from Mike Mitchell. Faced with a fourth-and-2 at the Oakland 40, McGee had another pass knocked down by blitzing linebacker Chad Kilgore.
*The first drive of the second half looked good for the Cowboys. The offensive line gave Kyle Orton time to get the ball downfield, including an 11-yard pass to Andre Holmes and a 20-yarder to Andrew Szczerba.
*It was a good snap from rookie Charley Hughlett on the converted 33-yard field goal attempt from Bailey. The Cowboys are giving Hughlett a chance to make the team over LP Ladouceur.
*In the first half, the offensive line struggled to open holes for DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones. In the second half, with the second unit, Jamize Olawale was able to find holes. Ed Wesley, a rookie from TCU, was surpassed on the depth chart by Javarris Williams.
*Josh Brent got the second-half start at nose tackle along with Tyrone Crawford and Clifton Geathers at end for the Cowboys. Teddy Williams started at corner with C.J. Wilson.
*Cowboys backups were able to get pressure on Terrelle Pryor, forcing him out of the pocket on a third down. Pryor got just two yards on the scramble.
*Safety Eddie Whitley had a chance to keep tight end David Ausberry short of the first down, but he couldn't hold him, resulting in an 11-yard gain.
*Center David Arkin played well through three quarters. He didn't have any bad snaps, just one hold and might have given up a sack.
