Raiders 21 - 49ers 20: Open Thread #3

49ers_logo_medium @   Raiders_logo_medium

This has been an incredibly sloppy game as the teams have combined for 14 penalties. It's been a fairly vanilla performance on both sides of the ball, which likely has to do with this being the preseason and the fact that these teams will square off in the regular season. Alex Smith had a solid first half while David Carr has been less than stellar in relief.

The defense has been up and down against the Raiders offense. They've had plenty of impressive stops, but they've also given up two touchdown drives of 70+ yards. Of course, with neither team mixing in anything too crazy, I'm not wildly concerned about it. I'd like to think the 49ers defense will answer the bell week one.
