NFL Preseason Preview - Detroit (1-0) at Oakland (0-1)



By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Schaub's first foray at the helm of the Oakland Raiders wasn't exactly aesthetically pleasing.

The veteran will give it another try when his new club welcomes Detroit to the O.co Coliseum for the Raiders' preseason home opener on Friday.

Schaub finished just 3-of-7 for 21 yards against a stingy Minnesota defense in a 10-6 Vikings win last Friday. High-profile free-agent running back pickup Maurice-Jones Drew flashed a little more in his Oakland debut, registering 10 yards rushing on two carries and hauling in two passes for 14 more.

Third-string QB Matt McGloin ran in for a 10-yard score in the closing minutes of the final quarter for the Raiders only scoring. The two-point conversion was unsuccessful, however.

The Lions, meanwhile, spoiled Johnny Manziel's much-anticipated debut for Cleveland last week, grabbing a 13-12 victory over the Browns in the preseason opener for both clubs.

Detroit was operating for the first time under new head coach Jim Caldwell, who took over the reins after the Lions fired Jim Schwartz following a 7-9 season that saw the team lose six of their final seven games.

The Lions had fumbled twice in the fourth quarter in Cleveland territory, but their final possession of the game saw Cleveland hit with three holding calls, and Kellen Moore found Corey Fuller in the left corner of the end zone for the 13-12 lead with 1:05 to play.

Detroit then sealed the win with an interception of Tyler Thigpen.

Lions starting quarterback Matthew Stafford played the opening series and led the team to a 37-yard field goal from Nate Freese.

The Raiders have dominated their preseason series with the Lions, owning a 5-1 advantage.
