After a solid performance by the Oakland Raiders on both sides of the ball Friday night in the third preseason game the Raiders pulled off their first preseason win of 2012 defeating the Detroit Lions 31-20. Making a great defensive stand by holding Megatron (Calvin Johnson) to a stand still was great preveiw of what there is to come this season.

LB Korey Bosworth, DE Mason Brodine, DE Wayne Dorsey, S Aaron Henry, S Chaz Powell, CB Terrail Lambert, WR Thomas Mayo, WR DeAundre Muhammad, QB Kyle Newhall-Caballero, FB Manase Tonga.
