NOTE — I got a pretty late start working on this, so I didn't even bother doing the live updates or the requisite pre-game notes for this week's """"""""home game"""""""" in London. Still, I kept an online log throughout the contest, and figured you'd get a kick out of reading my live stream of conciousness thoughts on the game, regardless. Bottoms up, kids!

2:22 p.m. - The Raiders take a knee and just run out the clock. They head into halftime with a 17-0 lead, which is something I think we ALL expected out of this one.

Boy, I'm sure nothing crazy will happen in the second half, like the Bears scoring 21 unanswered only for the Raiders to come storming back in the final two minutes of the game and winning 24-21 or anything like that ...

2:58 p.m. - First and 10 at the CHI 35. The swing pass falls incomplete.

2:58 p.m. - Second and 10. And the tight end gets 16 yards on the catch.

3:01 p.m. - First and 10 at the OAK 9. Patterson gets about five on the jet sweep.

3:01 p.m. - Second and five. And Daniel takes Robinson for the easy touchdown strike.

3:02 p.m. - There's a lot of Bears fans in London. Then again, there's a lot of shitty people in London, too, so that kinda' makes sense, I guess.

Naturally, this looks means one of two things: either the Raiders are about to make a mad comeback on offense, or somebody's about to get a thorough, Christian pussy-eatin'. 

3:03 p.m. - The XP is good. It's 17-14, Raiders, with 3:56 left in the third.

3:09 p.m. - First and 18. Jacobs gets about five on the screenpass.

3:10 p.m. - Second and 14. Mack sends pressure and Carr dunks it. No intentional grounding call.

3:10 p.m. - The safety blitz forces Carr to chunk it again. The pass falls incomplete, and the Raiders have to punt.

3:11 p.m. - And, of course, the Bears' return man takes it about 80 yards. Fuck my fuckin' life.

3:12 p.m. - First and 10 at the OAK 16. And Robinson hauls in the touchdown. A flag is down.

3:14 p.m. - Taunting call against Chicago, but the TD stands. Chicago takes the lead, 21-17.

3:15 p.m. - So, yeah, the Bears have score 21 unanswered in the last 14 minutes. God fuckin' damn it.

3:16 p.m. - And Davis takes the return out to midfield. So there is some hope there, I suppose.

3:19 p.m. - There's a penalty against the Bears on the 51-yard return. So Oakland takes over at the CHI 35. 

3:20 p.m. - Jacobs runs for two.

3:21 p.m. - Second and eight. Jacobs picks up the 12 yard pass. First down for the Raiders.

3:30 p.m. - Third and five. Obvious false start call against the Bears.

3:31 p.m. - Third and, like, seven. The sideline judge says that Robinson reeled in a 32-yard sideline catch. But Gruden is challenging it.

3:32 p.m. - The play stands as a catch.

3:34 p.m. - And Montgomery gets creamed behind the line of scrimmage. A 10-yard holding penalty against the Bears.

3:35 p.m. - First and 20 back at the CHI 25. Burton gets about four on the catch.

3:36 p.m. - Second and 16.  AND WORLEY REELS IN AN INTERCEPTION!

3:51 p.m. - Running into the kicker on Chicago. It's fourth and one. Should've been a 15-yard personal foul. 

3:52 p.m. - The Raiders convert on a fake run up the middle BUT THE BALL COMES OUT AND THE BEARS RECOVER. THIS IS GODDAMN UNFATHOMABLE.

3:53 p.m. - THE BALL CAME OUT AFTER THE BALL CARRIER'S ELBOW WAS DOWN. The Raiders SHOULD maintain possession.

3:54 p.m. - This game has given me five heart attacks. I've almost rage quit this shit nine times by now.
