The Raiders won the opening coin toss and elected to defer their choice to the start of the second half. The 49ers drove down the field but were forced to settle for a K David Akers field goal attempt. P Andy Lee mishandled the snap and attempted to throw a pass which was intercepted by Raiders LB Rolando McClain and returned to the Raiders 10. Lee was injured on the play. The Silver and Black's offense took the field with Jason Campbell at quarterback.

The Raiders went three and out and WR Tedd Ginn, Jr., returned P Shane Lechler's 58-yard punt to the 49ers 38. A penalty on San Francisco  during the return backed them up to their own 19.

The 49ers next drive started out promisingly but Raiders DE Matt Shaughnessy ended it with an interception and a return to the Raiders 37.

Campbell led the Raiders down the field with key completions to WRs Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey. However, Campbell was sacked on 4th and goal at the 2 and the 49ers took over on downs at their own 5.

San Francisco drove deep into Raiders territory again but were forced to settled for a 28-yard Akers field goal which gave San Francisco a 3-0 lead with 4:37 left in the second quarter. The drive consumed 90 yards in 11 plays.

Campbell was injured during the Raiders next possession and Trent Edwards took over at quarterback. Edwards led the Raiders down the field but threw an interception after two penalties put the Raiders in a long yardage situation. The 49ers took over at the own 20 with less than a minute left in the second quarter.

Colin Kaepernick took over at quarterback for the last two snaps of the half. The 49ers took a 3-0 lead into the locker room at halftime.

After WR Nick Miller returned the opening kickoff of the second half, Kyle Boller entered the game at quarterback for the Raiders. After picking up one first down, holding penalty derailed the drive and P Glenn Pakulak's punt was downed at the 49ers 35.

A few plays later, the 49ers capitalized when RB Kendall Hunter got loose up the middle for a 53-yard TD run. Akers extra point was good and San Francisco took a 10-0 lead with 10:29 left in the 3rd quarter.

The teams proceeded to trade punts.

The Raiders next drive ended when a Boller pass was picked off at the 49ers 40. The home team was unable to mount a drive and the Raiders blocked an Akers punt and took over at their own 40.

The Raiders drive stalled and K Sebastian Janikowski's 46-yard field goal put the Raiders on the board and cut the 49ers lead to 10-3 with 12:18 left in the 4th quarter.

The 49ers padded their lead when RB Xavier Omon cashed in on the ground from 5 yards out. The PAT was good and San Francisco led 17-3 with 3:39 left in the 4th quarter.
