NFL Preseason: Oakland Raiders vs. Detroit Lions Recap
August 15, 2014
In week 2 of the NFL preseason, the Raiders stormed back after the Lions jumped out to an early first-quarter lead. Matthew Stafford threw two touchdowns with ease before exiting. The Raiders' run defense, however, shut down all of the Lions' running backs in the game. For the Raiders, Maurice Jones-Drew looked washed up. Darren McFadden played ok, and Latavius Murray continued to look like Adrian Peterson on his limited opportunities with the ball. Oakland's Matt Schaub and Derek Carr did not look like NFL-quality quarterbacks. Matt McGloin came in late in the game and looked at least semi-competent. Oakland's roster remains in eternal need of a major overhaul.
