OAKLAND -- We just ended one long first quarter. It took nearly an hour to play. There were 10 drives in the quarter and the game is tied at 10-10.
Oakland receiver Chaz Schilens started his first game of the season after being out for three months with a broken foot. First-round draft pick Darrius Heyward-Bey started along with him as Louis Murphy came off the bench.
Both teams have been sloppy in the first quarter, with several dropped passes and penalties.
Rookie safety Mike Mitchell is out with an apparent hamstring injury.
Oakland running back Michael Bush had a 60-yard run to set up Oakland’s touchdown. But the Raiders haven’t done much offensively since.
Heyward-Bey dropped a perfect deep pass from quarterback JaMarcus Russell near the goal line early in the second quarter as he continued to have trouble holding onto the ball.
The Raiders are broadcasting the game in Navajo.
