Raiders take 10-7 lead over Buccaneers

The Bucs have given up the lead in their game against the Oakland Raiders. Tampa Bay has been inconsistent on offense, but they've done well on defense. Until the last series, that is, when a couple of big passes got the Raiders a lead. Twice the Raiders went after E.J. Biggers, netting them a total of 71 yards on two passes to Darrius Heyward-Bey and Rod Streater.

Surprisingly, rookie Leonard Johnson is holding up well in coverage, as is Eric Wright. But E.J. Biggers is getting victimized this game, and Carson Palmer is exposing the limited depth in the secondary for the Bucs.
