Raiders beat Lions 27-26 on late TD
(OAKLAND) – Matt Schaub ended his first home game with the Oakland Raiders on a high note. Schaub led a touchdown drive to cap an up-and-down performance, and the Raiders rallied behind Matt McGloin's 19 yard TD pass to Brice Butler with 6 seconds remaining to beat the Detroit Lions 27-26 in an exhibition game Friday night. Schaub threw a deflected interception on his first drive and struggled to move the Raiders on his next two drives before leading a 60 yard march capped by Darren McFadden's 1 yard run. Schaub finished 8 for 13 for 87 yards and looked sharper than he did in last week's exhibition loss at Minnesota. Matthew Stafford threw TD passes on his first two drives, connecting on a 28 yard pass to Golden Tate on Detroit's second play from scrimmage and a 4 yard score to Kris Durham. The Lions' first-team offense looked sharp even with Calvin Johnson held out of his second straight preseason game, but ended up losing it with their reserves late. Stafford picked apart Oakland's defense in his limited action, completing 9 of 10 passes for 88 yards and capping the second drive when Durham outjumped TJ Carrie for the 4-yard score. Stafford completed passes to five receivers on three drives before calling it a night. Backup Dan Orlovsky also had success, going 8 for 12 for 153 yards and leading an 83-yard TD drive to open the second half.

New England 42 – Philadelphia 35
New Orleans 31 – Tennessee 24
