The Oakland Raiders are back on the road, starting their back-to-back Florida games with a Week 7 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field.
The Jaguars are coming off a pair of consecutive wins themselves, and could get back to .500 with a win over the Silver and Black.
After missing the past two games recovering from a toe injury, running back Latavius Murray is active Sunday, and will likely make his return to the field against the Jaguars.
However, the same cannot be said for the following players who were ruled inactive prior to kickoff:
Quarterback Connor Cook, running back Taiwan Jones, cornerback Dexter McDonald, safety Brynden Trawick, tackle Menelik Watson, guard Vadal Alexander, and tight end Ryan O'Malley.
The captains for the Week 7 bout with the Jaguars are defensive end Khalil Mack, quarterback Derek Carr, kicker Sebastian Janikowski, center Rodney Hudson, and guard Gabe Jackson.
The Jaguars won the toss, and have elected to defer to the second half, meaning the Raiders will receive the opening kickoff.
After going three-and-out on their opening series, the Raiders in turn have forced a three-and-out by Blake Bortles and Co., on the Jaguars first offensive opportunity of the afternoon.
While the Silver and Black weren't able to find the end zone on their next possession, they have managed to take an early lead after Janikowski successfully connected on a 26-yard field goal.
The Raiders now lead 3-0 with 9:08 left in the first quarter.
Blake Bortles was able to drive the Jaguars deep into Raiders territory, but facing a 3rd and 7, Bortles was intercepted in the end zone by cornerback David Amerson.
The Silver and Black now take over at their own 20-yard line with 4:40 left in the first quarter.
The Jaguars have given the Raiders yet another gift in the early goings of the game, as Rashad Greene Sr. has muffed a punt from Marquette King that the Raiders were able to recover inside the Red Zone.
At the end of the first quarter, the Raiders are on the Jaguars 14-yard line, and still own a 3-0 lead.
Once again, the Raiders couldn't convert in the Red Zone, but a 32-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski has increased the Silver and Black's lead to 6-0 with 14:55 left in the second quarter.
The Jaguars are now on the board, as Jason Myers has connected on a 23-yard field goal to bring the score to 6-3 with 12:38 left in the half.
INJURY UPDATE: defensive tackle Stacy McGee is questionable to return with an ankle injury.
Latavius Murray has made reservations for six, running in a two-yard touchdown with 5:52 left in the first half, to extend the Raiders lead. Janikowski connected on the PAT to now give the Silver and Black a 13-3 lead.
The Jaguars have added another three points as Myers has connected on his second field goal of the day, this one from 37 yards out.
The Raiders now lead 13-6 with 1:49 left in the second quarter.
With just under two minutes left in the half, Carr was able to orchestrate a seven-play, 75-yard drive that was punctuated by a two-yard touchdown pass to Crabtree.
Janikowski connected on the PAT, so with 0:11 remaining in the half, the Raiders now lead the Jaguars 20-6.
The Jaguars took a knee following the kickoff, so at the end of the first half, the Raiders lead 20-6.
After electing to defer, Jacksonville will receive the ball to start the second half.

Myers connected, and with 12:11 left in the third quarter, the Raiders now lead 20-9.
The Raiders and Jaguars traded punts for the majority of the third quarter, but another Janikowski field goal – this one from 44 yards out – increased the Silver and Black's lead to 23-9 with 2:28 left in the frame.

With the successful kick, the Raiders now lead 26-9 with 11:33 left in the game.
Although the Jaguars haven't been able to get much going offensively today, the team has found the end zone with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter.
Blake Bortles has thrown a nine-yard touchdown pass to Julius Thomas, and with the converted extra point, the Raiders lead is now 26-16.
With 2:35 left in the game, Latavius Murray put the punctuation mark on the effort, finding the end zone after a nine-yard gallop.
