Buccaneers vs. Raiders score update: Oakland leads Tampa Bay 10-7 at halftime

Thearon W. Henderson

The Oakland Raiders hold a slim 10-7 lead over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at halftime.

The Buccaneers trail the Oakland Raiders 10-7 at halftime, after Carson Palmer connected with Rod Streater for a 25 yard touchdown with 1:20 remaining in the half. The Raiders had been held quiet for most of the first half, but drove 71 yards in 14 seconds to take the lead. The Bucs had an opportunity to tie the game right before halftime, but Connor Barth missed a 54 yard field goal just to the left.

The Raiders opened the scoring with a short Sebastian Janikowski field goal near the end of the first quarter, but the Bucs answered a few minutes later when Josh Freeman connected with Vincent Jackson for a 20 yard touchdown pass. The Raiders appeared to take the lead briefly with about 9 minutes left in the second quarter, but a holding call negated a long touchdown pass from Palmer to Derek Hagan. After exchanging punts, the Raiders finally capitalized with the Streater touchdown.

Freeman is 12-21 for 160 yards and a touchdown, and Doug Martin has 31 yards rushing to lead the Bucs. Vincent Jackson has 84 yards on only two receptions, one of which being a 64 yard bomb.

Carson Palmer is 13-22 for 151 yards and a touchdown, and Darrius Heyward-Bey is the leading receiver with 68 yards. Darren McFadden has been quiet so far, and only has 17 rushing yards on the day.
