AP

In a first half marked by a pair of non-offensive touchdowns, the Raiders hold a 14-10 halftime lead on Washington.

Oakland scored the game’s first touchdown when Rashard Jennings blocked a punt recovered in the endzone by teammate Jeremy Stewart. Later in the first quarter, Matt Flynn hit tight end Mychal Rivera for an 18-yard score to give the Raiders a 14-0 lead.

Flynn, who’s starting for Terrelle Pryor (concussion), completed 11-of-18 passes for 104 yards in the first half. However, he threw an interception returned for a 45-yard touchdown by Washington rookie cornerback David Amerson.

Robert Griffin III completed 10-of-18 passes for 107 yards in the first half for Washington.

The Raiders have had a pair of key backs suffer injuries. Fullback Marcel Reece (knee) has been ruled out for the game. Running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) is questionable to return.

Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan suffered a hamstring injury, according to the Fox telecast of the game. Also, cornerback DeAngelo Hall suffered an ankle injury in the first half, according to Fox. However, he was back on the field when the third quarter began.

  1. It’s crazy how I previously couldn’t care less about the Redskins one way or the other, and liked RG3. But, since “meeting” logicalvoicesays, my schadenfreude for the Redskins is now formidable.

  2. God the redskins are truly inept. They have so much talent and have pilfered the “underachieving NFC east team” title from Dallas.

    I’ll be back in an hour celebrating a Redskins victory. The Raiders are UFL quality. #HTTR
