The Bills won the opening coin toss and deferred their choice to the second half and the Raiders got the ball to start the game. K Rian Lindell’s opening kickoff bounced through the end zone for a touchback and the Raiders started at their own 20. Both teams traded punts after three-and-outs.

The Raiders managed one first down on their second possession and punted the ball back to the Bills. Parrish made a fair catch at the Buffalo 15. Buffalo’s drive was derailed and Moorman punted the ball back to the Raiders who took over at their own 29 after Miller’s 12-yard return.

The Raiders got on the board first when RB Michael Bush plowed in from one yard out to cap a 14-play, 71-yard drive. K Sebastian Janikowski’s extra point was good and the Raiders led 7-0 with 11:33 left in the 2nd quarter.

Janikowski blasted the ensuing kickoff out of the back of the end zone for a touchback. The Bills mounted a drive that SS Tyvon Branch snuffed when he blocked Lindell’s 39-yard field goal attempt at the end of the first half.

Janiowski’s opening kickoff of the 2nd half was fielded and downed in the end zone for a touchback and the Bills started at their own 20. RB Fred Jackson scampered for a 43-yard TD and the Bills cut the Raiders lead to 21-10 with 13:26 left in the third quarter.
